I do not believe in mixing church and state. Of course you would expect that reaction from ministers, duh.... here is a quote that came from the article that I believe is 100% correct.(quote)LadyLindz 1 week ago wrote:
I have a problem with religious leaders acting as representative of the people on civil/civic issues. This is a parish government decision. People actually pick their representatives for government, so let them serve on this issue. Those ministers only represent their own congregation, not everyone in the parish. So who are they to say that "the people of St. Tam" are against casinos? Not everyone in the parish beleives what they beleive.(quote)
