The catholic bishops cannot make legal rules that apply to non-church members; and members of other religions
.
They should keep their religious superstitions private and personal; like dirty underwear

But the Catholics don't believe in religious freedom, nor the separation of church and state, so they disagree with you. They believe they have the RIGHT to impose their narrow religious views, thru civil law, on ALL Americans.

But the RCC does believe in separation of church and state. And they believe that government should be subservient in the relationship.

I do not believe that the RCC has EVER said they believe in the concept of the separation of church and state. Their history certainly indicates the opposite.

IF you can cite me something where the RCC states that they DO favor the separation of church and state, then please cite it.
