They are both horrors, no doubt about it.

However, if the Byzantine Empire didn't fall, there would be no Orthodox church. The last emperor of Constantinople was Catholic, and the patriarch he appointed was trying to unify the Church again. But Constantinople was lost to the Ottomans, who appointed an anti-Roman patriarch.
