Since ancient times, a large part of humanity has believed in the existence of supreme or divine beings, things or entities. On earth, religions have been the conduit and the way to concentrate these beliefs or dogmas about the respective divinity, and to establish the forms of their veneration, the rules of conduct of their faithful, the rituals and the consequences of their fulfillment. and disobedience.

The religions in turn, they are organized through institutions and associations of people, whose respective name or denomination generally represents or reflects their origin, foundation, and characteristics. These organizations lay the foundations and establish their principles around their beliefs and ideology, in addition to establishing the levels of command and hierarchy within them.

Perhaps, hiding behind these precepts, from the pulpit the bishop of the diocese of Aguascalientes, Juan Espinosa Jimenezinvited the parishioners to protest against the free textbooks of the Ministry of Public Education (SEP), since it ensures that educational materials are not suitable for the training of children and adolescents.

During his homily he asked those who attended the temple to be attentive, in case the texts finally reached the students. "If at one point these books were imposed on us, I would ask parents to be very careful and be very attentive to reinforce education at home, to review their homework with their children"said the prelate.

The Catholic hierarch warned that the material is part of an education model with "Marxist, ideological and political tendencies", and all this, he considered that it can disorient our students.

The bishop went under the cassock basic legal norms such as the fact that the Ministry of the Interior is the agency in charge of conducting the relations of the federal Executive Power with religious actors in the country and this task includes promoting and monitoring compliance with constitutional and legal provisions regarding public worship, churches, groups and religious associations.

He Article 130 of the Federal Constitution refers to the historical principle of the separation of the State and the churches, establishing the following limitation:

“e) Ministers may not associate for political purposes or proselytize for or against any candidate, party or political association. Nor may they oppose the laws of the country or its institutions in public meetings, in acts of worship or religious propaganda, or in publications of a religious nature, or offend, in any way, the national symbols.”

The Religious freedom has no limits other than the secular nature of the State. No clergy can claim to submit to the State to its decisions, while the State cannot submit to any religious commandment. This is because the State does not recognize any religion as its own, but neither does it ignore religions, much less persecute them. The secular state is not the atheistic state.

It is understood that the public service cannot be carried out by clergy, since it should not be submitted by any clergy, the same if it is about positions by designation or election.

It is evident that many priests do not respect the content of subparagraph e) of article 130 of the Constitution nor are they willing to submit to it. The priests, especially the most senior ones, abuse, while the government tolerates them. This hypocrisy must be overcome in favor of the affirmation of the secularism of the State.

Given the statements of the Catholic prelate, Juan Espinosa Jimenez, the senator from Morena Olga Sanchez Cordero He warned that with this attitude the clergy violate the Constitution, since they openly intervene in politics and priests who make calls against free textbooks should be punished.

It only remains to know who will put the bell on the cat; Luisa María Mayor Luján it will not, because it is one more piece of the president's private collection of vases Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.
