We don 't know what Collins would have done, we can guess but the new free state government handed control of the state over to the Catholic Church in health, education and ideology. They should not have done that but had they not they might not get elected. The people were religion mad. So with the people not caring, the state not caring it was over to the Church to care because they were claiming love of Christ. They were top dog and should
realised they would not get away with abusing their power. They did a very good job at standing against communism, I will give them that. But they failed
to live up to their Christian message, They were in the punishment business. No one, No one tells me what to think or what to do.
The Church was already in Control
- the State didn't have to hand over anything....
Because the Church was already a State within a State under the Old Regime.
