Bishops cannot be disenfranchised of their citizenship. Pronouncing on Catholic principles is not “lobbying, electioneering or attempting to take away people’s constitutional rights”. It is the right of the people to hear the TRUTH in Catholic principles. The IRS cannot tax donations of parishioners who have paid their taxes without causing taxation without representation. Two taxes with only one vote. A fake husband and a phony wife are a fraud and a perjury in a court of law. Same sex marriage is a lie. Nobody has a civil right to lie. Cafardi issues are nebulous at most and vague at least. He has not spelled out what his issues are and because he has no legitimate stand. Defining religious principles is not political activity. Cafardi is using the legitimate power of government to deny the freedom of speech and the freedom of religion to silence the Catholic Church.
One cannot be a Communist and a Catholic at the same time. One cannot be stupid and serious at the same time, either. His students ought to sue to get their tuition back.
