"Six of the nine Supreme Court justices attended the annual Red Mass at the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle in Washington on Sunday. The event’s speakers spoke about using faith in decision-making but largely stayed away from the controversial issues the court will face in the coming months."
What the fuck!? The Supreme Court Justices, the men and women who are charged with defending and upholding the very foundation of our government, The Constitution, are being encourage to defile one of its most important principles and that is not "controversial"? Despite claims to the contrary from ignorant assholes separation of church and state is not a myth. It is one of the cornerstones of our democracy. Dan Merica's failure to comprehend something that basic is truly astounding. "Record number of justices attend Red Mass" is nothing to crow about. It's very purpose is despicable. I am not saying anything about people's personal beliefs or their right to believe whatever they choose. This mass has nothing to do with religious freedom or with spirituality for that matter. It's goals are political! It has always been about lobbying to those in power.
"strive to be instruments of a new evangelization." That is what this is all about. Turning our democracy into tyrrany with our elected officials serving as instruments of religion. Religions, in case you had not noticed, are not democratic in any way. They are authoritarian. They are the antithesis of democracy. That so many have attended without so much as a second thought is shameful.
