So you are condemning the Papacy from 754 to 1870? I take it that you wouldn't have taken up arms in defense of the Papal States? Would you have fought against the Papal States?

That's some novus BS that JPII pulled in 1980 and had codified in the 1983 Code of Canon Law. The real reason he did it was to sweep under the rug the fact that priests had become far-left wing. I don't know of any right-wing priests in politics post-Vatican II.

You are against the 1,000-year-old traditions of the clergy exercising civil power. Why was the Church wrong for so long and why are you right?
