A Violation of the Separation of the Church/State?

To the Editor:

Elisabeth Meinecke reports in the 05/17/2010 Human Events, “House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is telling Catholic bishops who want her to pass immigration reform that they must speak out in favor of the reform in their churches. “‘The cardinals, the archbishops, the bishops come to me and say, ‘We want you to pass immigration reform,’” Pelosi, who is Catholic herself, said Thursday at the Catholic Community Conference. “And I say, ‘But I want you to speak about it from the pulpit.’”

When is it not a violation of the separation of church and state to push a political agenda from pulpits? Evidently, when liberals want it done. (One wonders if any of these churches will be threatened with the loss of its tax exemption.)
