“Why the legislative majority of the State of Connecticut think it’s ok to dictate how the Catholic Church must govern itself is beyond comprehension. The legislature has no right to interfere in the structure of the Church and though this bill is directed only at the Catholic Church today, it could be forced on other denominations in the future. This is, at best, unconstitutional. At worst, it’s an underhanded attempt to silence the Catholic Church. The state has no business controlling religion.”
