    Several thought's actually.

    First, I am glad to see the Catholic Church encourage people to stand by the values they claim to believe. I am also glad to see any organization out there encouraging a better life for people.

    Second, I am glad to see Ms Pelosi actually allowing people an opportunity to vote. The idea that we shouldnt have a choice seems rather absurd continuing the mantra of the pro abortion movement.

    Third, the country is reaching a tipping point. I think we all need to get invovled and speak now before we have that right violently taken from us because we failed to.

    That's not the entire issue at hand here.

    By whom and for what? Last I checked, the only ones wanting anything banned is The Catholic Church.

    The Founding Fathers did not make this country a Christian state. They had a chance to when creating the Constitution and turned down such a amendment. You know why? Because religion did not belong in politics. Yes, religion is all about morality, however, they are trying to determine the law of the land.

    Did you know that once upon a time, Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches both sanctioned and sanctified unions between partners of the same sex. This occurred until modern times. The ceremonies that the church used for Homosexuals was very similar to the ones for Heterosexuals.

    The last time I checked, the clause in the First Amendment guaranteeing the right to petition the government for redress of grievances didn't include the phrase, ". . . unless you're Catholic."

    I'm not saying they shouldn't have a right to petition. I'm saying it's wrong for religion and politics to mix. There is a reason why we are suppose to have a separation of church and state. I'm willing to bet my life that you wouldn't want to live in the U.S. under Sharia law.
