That's a lot of Saints and Blesseds to have been straying for a millennium.

I'm playing Devil's Advocate.  You're saying there is nothing wrong with the Pope being a temporal ruler, and offer as proof a list of popes who were also temporal rulers, canonized by the same organization that demanded the pope have temporal authority.  

Are these saints recognized by Orthodoxy?  If not, then why would someone who is investigating Orthodoxy and is unsure that the Catholic Church is the true Church be any more convinced by this than an atheist would be having the Bible quoted to him?
