Roman Catholic priests forbidden to celebrate Mass for those serving in the U.S. military.



During the partial government shut-down, GS and contracted Roman Catholic priests have been forbidden to celebrate Mass for those in the military, even if they are willing to do so on a voluntary, unpaid basis. If they come onto a military base and hold Mass, which Canon Law requires for Catholics on Sunday, they can be arrested.:(

Here
and here

This essentially puts the government between servicemen and God, withholding a religious experience that is important to all Roman Catholics. (I do not have information as to whether those of other Christian denominations are being harmed in the practice of their faith.)

Those who serve in the military do so at some personal sacrifice. Those in control of the military ought not be using their authority to harm them in their religious lives.

I don't really think this is the top priority concern about your government being unable to work together to balance their budget. A 30 second conversation at best.

What happened to separation of Church and State? Celebrating Mass is hardly going to send the Government broke, is it?
