    They probably learnt it in mass which was often conducted in Latin in the past.

    It's true though, the holy inquisition's obsession with gathering evidence and writing down witness testimony is the basis of the modern judicial process. Historically it played an important role that way. So at least something good came out of it.

    “How can one explain this trend towards a more colorless and shallow life? Well, the work was easier, if less healthy, and it brought in more money, more leisure, and perhaps more entertainment. A day in the country is long and hard. And yet the fruits of their present life were worthless compared to a single coin of their former life: a rest in the evening and a rural festivity. That they no longer knew the old kind of happiness was obvious from the discontentment which spread over their features. Soon dissatisfaction, prevailing over all their other moods, became their religion.” - Ernst Jünger, The Glass Bees

    If it were the case we would all be speaking some kind of romance today and the reformation would not have had such an impact it had, or perhaps would not have even happened.

    I do not ultimately trust christians or any follower of organized religion and I never will. However I have no issue with them so long as they keep their religion to themselves.

    Notice when christians have no power that they are allowed to practice their religion freely and are left alone. If they had power then you can be sure they would try to force their beliefs onto the rest of us in all aspects of life. As they always have. Inquisitions, witch hunts, and so on. They would want to control everything in all of their zealous fervor. All arguments and discussions would be debated with bible quotes like I see copy pasted on this forum. The disgusting "church" and all of its atrocities from the past would rule over all again. I am glad that era is gone and will never return again.

    I believe in the separation of church and State. Jesus himself had no political ambitions. Mark 12:17 King James Version (KJV)

    17 And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's. And they marveled at him.

    When I left my home in Alsace in 1957, my catholic friends were not allowed to read the Bible in their own language, they read it in Latin without understanding

    Organised religion makes a lot of folks (at the top) very rich because they are essentially run as businesses. The wealth and power amassed by the Catholic Church during the period being discussed here was quite obscene!

    Sadly, as with all products, there is a constant need for paying customers so it has to be promoted or the public will go somewhere else. The CC once had the market to itself and was utterly ruthless in enforcing its monopoly for several centuries, but ultimately its clients came to realise that the goods were substandard
