1) The Time of religion commanding a priviledged and
determinitive status in U.S. law and social policy
is coming to an end.
2) Until that time the Roman Catholic hieracy will
squeal like stuck pigs, and play the victim card.

What they don’t have is the freedom to use tax money to force their beliefs on others, or the freedom to have legislatures pass laws that codify their particular religious beliefs and force others to act the way they would like their members to act.

I find it interesting that, when members of a certain church don’t follow the teachings of that church, the church tries to pass laws to force them (and everyone else, of course) to do what the church wants done (or not done). If the members of the church don’t obey the leaders, maybe they should take care of that within their own church. If a church doesn’t like the laws of the country, they should not ask for money from the country to run their charities.
