Would that surprise you? The church is not the stone building nor even the clergy and their dogmas. While the General Government should abstain from the exercise of authority not clearly delegated to it, the States should be equally careful that in the maintenance of their rights they do not overstep the limits of powers reserved to them. You cannot know where that wretched habit will lead you or where it will come against you. Drive him back to hell when he tempts you to dishonour your body in that way--the foul spirit who hates our Lord.
