RELIGIOUS LIBERTY AND RELIGIOUS -1 EQUALITY. gIR "Enquirer" asks what sum of money has the State'oiven, or does annually give, to support the Church as her ministers are called" State paid clergy." No annual grant is now made towards the maintenance of the Church. Church rates were abolished a few years ago greatly to the disgust of people like En(iiiirer. If the words State paid clergy still survives it shows how the granting of tithes is even tl this day looked upon as a provision made by the State for the clergy. Of course we know that the best of the tithes have gone to the laity again. A good deal of the Irish Church property has gone to the paying of parsons who had vested interests in the Church And now I have done with Enquirer." My only re- gret is that there should be anybody so ignorant as to re- quire answers to these questions. I am, &c. COCK OF THE STEEPLE.
