    The Roman Catholic Church is a universal political power already.

    Which is better:
    If the dominant church of a nation is
    1) Controlled by that nation's own People
    2) Controlled by The Pope

    There are some arguments against a state church, true. But in philosophy we should always want our Religion to be in our own People's hands. (Even if they are independant churches.) Not in the hands of The Pope or another "universal" power.

    RE the posts lost in the server crash:

    Here's what I meant by Orthodox churches acting in the interests of their people: The Serbian Orthodox Church helped hide for years a patriot wanted by the forces of globalism for resisting the attacks of UN/NATO/EU/US:

    Karadzic’s reported hide-outs included Serbian Orthodox monasteries and refurbished mountain caves in remote eastern Bosnia. Some newspaper reports said he had at times disguised himself as a priest by shaving off his trademark silver mane and donning a brown cassock.
