    ...we still have decisions that say taxpayers must fund Planned Parenthood.

    The problem with the Catholic Church is that half of us aren't even paying attention.

    The members of the Supreme Court do not write laws. The judge what is constitutional and within the law. Their beliefs should not be a factor.

    And yet, they are because the Constitution is a "living, breathing" document which means whatever the hell the majority says it means.

    Roe v. Wade was a perfect example of the Court ignoring the text of the Constitution and just ruling by fiat that abortion was legal.

    Wrong.

    The funding of Planned Parenthood has nothing to do with religious dogma.

    Ignorant and wrong.

    Roe is the progeny of Griswold v. Connecticut and Eisenstadt v. BairdRoe is a perfectly sound and appropriate ruling consistent with settled, accepted case law recognizing the right to privacy, prohibiting the state from interfering with a citizen's right to make personal decisions absent unwarranted interference from government, such as whether to have a child or not.

    .
    The Catholic Organization - a socialist system that embeds itself into governments around the world and it does do a lot of good things to help millions of people, however being a social services organization is not the same as giving Your own money to help anyone - and then returning back to Your job and suffering a loss by the donations and giving's that You have given freely. The Vatican gets their money back and keeps growing as they continue to grow in wealth and riches and have been running the same system for hundreds of years.

    THIS IS THE ONLY SOCIALISM THAT THE VATICAN WILL EVER ACCEPT . . . . .

    The Article 13 of the Reichskonkordat between Nazi Germany ( Hitler ) and the Vatican, Hitler guaranteed in His contract with the Vatican - that the right of the Catholic Church to levy taxes would be guaranteed in Germany - And Hitler also guaranteed that the Catholic Church would not be held responsible for debts to German businesses. ( Concerning Vatican Properties and accounts. )

    They wanted to be treated like German Government Officials on the payroll of the taxpayers. No debts, No Fees, and no reimbursements for failed and collapsed businesses would be allowed to seize Catholic / Vatican Socialist Government Properties to be reimbursed.

    An eternal Socialist state and condition Catholic debt - that can only be collected and - only - be Re - Paid by the taxpayers - to continually flow to repay / reimbursments to the hands of other taxpayers - of whom who the Vatican may owe to. This is THE ONLY Socialism that the VATICAN WILL EVER SUPPORT - and Hitler gave the Vatican the only Socialism that it considers Holy, Sacred, Godly and Devine, and the only Socialism that it will ever find acceptable.

    All other forms of Socialism and Communism are to be De-Throned, Vilified, Manipulated, Cheated and Forced to repay the Catholic Church for any Aid, any Help any Services any Supplies and any Charities that the Catholic Church dispenses to the masses. Their only goal is to embed themselves into every government on earth and EXIST as a SOCIALIST - Government Funded Agency that is legally guaranteed that the Catholic Church would not be held responsible for debts to any Non - Catholic businesses. ( Concerning Vatican Properties and accounts. ) and that - the right of the Catholic Church to receive tax credits for their social services and properties in SOCIALIST SOCIAL SERVICE - SISPENSATIONS // DISPENSATIONS.

    Hitler gave Pope Pius everything He wanted to place every single Catholic Bishop and Priest into the Socialist Service and to be treated like a government worker. And Pope Pius placed the keys of the Church into His evil hand. Pope Pius wrote in His Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano, that The Reichskonkordat - was a triumph for the Code of Canon Law....

    The Canon Law is a rule book, a code of laws that are within the jurisdiction of the Church, that dictates many things such as - like ----- who may or may not marry and The Vatican never marries anyone - they simply strumpet and strip tease their way into every Socialist Government System that is looking for a political and spiritual Socialist shrew to be embedded into their Socialist Government system.

    The Catholic Church is simply holding its position and its place in The US government in such a way to make certain that it will remain as dominant as it possibly can.

    in fact, the Roman Catholic Socialist System around the world - is nothing more than selective morality -

    a continual and eternal actions and motions of passing moral judgments upon one person, with a selective set of moral judgmental codes - while completely ignoring the entire moral code in another person in order to achieve the destruction and block the path of the first person - while promoting and politically and emotionally supporting and remaining completely silent about the other second person whose moral actions are far beyond more monstrous, atrocious, evil black and hellish and satanic and beyond all corruption

    IN HIS MORAL CODE OF ETHICS - Herod himself had a selective moral code that placed the very bitter denial and the disobedience of His own will and command and desire that was ignored - as above any other moral code that would prevent Him from murdering thousands of innocent babies. This was His selective moral code.

    The Vatican has this same exact system of moral code that King Herod had - as they will always place the People who murder and torture little innocent babies and who murder millions of innocent people - OVER the People who try to prevent this from happening- because the child murderers and evil perverted individuals truly follow and adhere to the higher selective / selected personal code that is the code at the heart and Spirit of Catholicism and also Islam.

    Selective moral codes completely override everything - in a flash of an instance. This is the principal and foundation and key of The Socialism Political System Of The Catholic Church In America. And The Pope Leads The Charge to trample Donald Trump and His voters into the dust of America.

    The law says taxpayer money can't fund abortion....anyone that believes for one second that isn't happening at PP is a fool.

    But you're right, one's religious beliefs shouldn't play into it.

    A little dated...but Scalia knew what was wrong with the Supreme Court.

    “Take, for example, this Court, which consists of only nine men and women, all of them successful lawyers who studied at Harvard or Yale Law School. Four of the nine are natives of New York City. Eight of them grew up in east- and west-coast States. Only one hails from the vast expanse in-between. Not a single Southwesterner or even, to tell the truth, a genuine Westerner (California does not count). Not a single evangelical Christian (a group that comprises about one quarter of Americans), or even a Protestant of any denomination.”
