Public documents show the federal government gave 753,000,000 of tax dollars to Catholic charities in 2011. (Journalist Sarah Posner discovered.) That is three quarters of a BILLION dollars. If tuition vouchers are enacted in more states, the Vatican's church in America will get more tax money; well over a billion dollars. It is not debatable that -every- election will see the Catholic Church struggling to keep the flow from the US Treasury coming. Why wouldn't they? Is it coincidental that the chaplain of the House of Representatives was a Catholic priest for 11 years? And that when he stepped down in the Spring of 2011, House Speaker Boehner got him replaced with a Jesuit Priest? (Boehner and Nancy Pelosi are Catholics.) We pay that Jesuit priest $170,000 to be a chaplain for the US House of Representatives, despite President James Madison having written that the taxpayer should not pay for a chaplain for the House. I'm offended. Of course, my being offended might be called bigotry by some, but I see that accusation as manipulative. Am I not right to ask: Isn't it as if the USA is nationalizing the Roman Catholic Church?
