we have this principle called "separation of church and state".
See the writings of Senor Tomas
Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe
Seems that an explanation is in order. Blank stares from the blog readers. There was a dia sin immigrants rally in Charlottesville Virginia. I think the Catolico Church was the local organizer. The backstory- Albemarle County was the home of Th. Jefferson. The County takes that wall of separation biz pretty seriously. No big stones with the ten commandments loitering on our Courthouse grounds. No creche allowed on the County Office Building property in the month of December.
Ironies abound when words lose their meaning.
