Good God?


Dear Editor of the East Hampton Independent,

What in hell is going on? It is an outrage that any church, temple, mosque or any house of mystic beliefs should try to impose their theocratic dictates on our secular government. They should keep their gods in their own houses of worship and enjoy them to their hearts content without having to shove it down the throat of the government which for whatever reason allows them to function tax free.

This particular rant is aimed at the Catholic Church and is prompted by the Seven Catholic Bishops in Minnesota, including Archbishop Harry Flynn of the archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, who have issued a statement condemning the raid by federal immigration authorities in Worthington, as well as the immigration policies of the United States. They were soon joined by five other Bishops. It seems that they feel it is not dignified to enforce our laws upon the illegal aliens that are breaking them . . . employers included.

How hypocritical! Perhaps if they read the papers on a regular unbiased basis, they might find that there are REAL indignities that have taken place and right in their own undignified back yard. They were against helpless children. And it was also done with the knowledge of Bishops who at those times failed to dignify those crimes. Perhaps they should clean up their own illegal activities before they start condemning the legal ones of the United States.

Applicable to all religions, the supernatural has no place in a secular government. Decisions are based on clear real thinking devoid of spirits or ghosts. Separation of religion and government is essential if we do not want to emulate those faith-crazed theocracies that have proven to be such a thorn in our side.
