We all know that good men do evil things, the same as evil men do good things. Hitler loved his dog. Religion is not about good versus evil. It's rich versus poor, powerful versus powerless. The (Catholic) church knows that with money and power, it can affect outcomes, control things. It can (historically) make or break kings, and build or crush empires. The meek don't inherit anything but the earth under which they are buried, while their children's lifetimes are spent in indentured servitude. The poor have no power. The rich and powerful allow them the illusion, while the top leadership lives in splendor within the richest organization on earth. The privileged allow elections in which all the candidates are owned by them. They allow a choice between their bought-and-paid-for alternatives. Belief and faith are the elixirs promoted to preserve this enormous institutional power and keep believers and the faithful in line. 10's of millions of faithful live in squalor and hunger while the Vatican is a vast treasurehouse filled with the spoils of centuries of plunder and titheing. It's worth is beyond estimation.
It's men are emasculated and women in its service are relegated to a highest achievement of nursing or domestics or teachers; none of whom will ever enter the upper echelons or lead a congregation. What do you think?
