KLITZKIE: THE GOVERNOR HAS CROSSED THE LINE

Restrictions on churches and churchgoers violate the free exercise of religion clause


By Robert Klitzkie

Our Organic Act has held since 1950: “No law shall be enacted in Guam respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government for a redress of their grievances.” It’s 48 USC § 1421b. (a) and it tracks the First Amendment to the US Constitution. CONTINUED

  1. Robert Klitzke claims sacramental services [are] the essence of Catholicism. I always thought the Nicene Creed was the essence of Catholicism. Thank you, Mr. Klitzke, for setting me straight.

    1. While the Creed contains the "essence" of what we believe as Catholics, the "essence of Catholicism" is our Sacraments, specifically the Holy Eucharist, which is the "source and summit of our faith."

  2. I wonder why the Nicene Creed mentions Baptism, but not the Eucharist.

  3. Help me out: if a person lived alone on an island where there was no priest and could not partake in the Eurcharist, but held to the Nicene Creed with all his heart, would he still be a Catholic? And if another received the Eurcharist, but did not believe a word of the Nicene Creed, would he be a Catholic?

    1. If you know the answer then you're lying about it being a conundrum.
