Archbishop John C. Nienstedt needs a lesson in the Separation of Church and State. In January, I shared about how the Archbishop was advocating that priests either support the amendment or be quiet about it - otherwise, they would face being dismissed from their ministry.
The Archbishop has also offered parishes a prayer to help “defend” marriage:
Grant to us all the gift of courage to proclaim and defend your plan for marriage, which is the union of one man and one woman…
This is in line with the strategic direction of amendment proponents in pushing the lines of church and state. I keep wondering, when will someone step in and take away tax exempt status and all of the other benefits bestowed on these institutions? In the case of the Catholic Church, their funding of hate is getting old.
