Imagine saying, “You Ma’m have benefited from the achievements of the Catholic Church. Therefore, the Catholic Church has the right to force you to fund it, force your children to attend Sunday mass, and cage you for not following Church edicts.

Do you thing we should believe in nothing and ‘regulate’ ourselves?”
