Is the State becoming as insignificant as the Catholic Church?

By Vin Armani

In this video, the Catholic Church proves it has become completely insignificant. They went from waging wars and running an empire at their peak to now fussing over whether married men are allowed to become priests to cover the shortfall in its organization. Will the State end up the church? Petty and losing influence? Vin Armani thinks it’s already happening.

    The Catholic Church is irrelevant because organized religion is irrelevant.

    Think about it. There is no evidence that god exists, yet these people, after decades of mudering people, witch hunting, etc. want you to believe in this mythical god of love. They pay out billions of dollars for pedophile priest’s bad behavior. So a big DUH, WHAT YOU THINK! to the CC.

      Too bad you are so stupid.

        Thanks, your articulate reply has cleared any doubt about the subject. I thought perhaps you would resort to adolescent ranting.

  • Religion is not the effective method of conquest it was in the past.

    Three Types of Conquest

    History reveals nations can be conquered by the use of one or more of three methods.

    1. The most common is conquest by war. In time, though, this method usually fails, because the captives hate the captors and rise up and drive them out if they can. Much force is needed to maintain control, making it expensive for the conqueror.

    2. Another method is by religion, where men are convinced they must give their captors part of their earnings as “obedience to God.” Such a captivity is vulnerable to philosophical exposure or by overthrow by armed force, since religion by its nature lacks military force to regain control, once its captives become disillusioned.

    3. The third method can be called economic conquest. It takes place when nations are placed under “tribute” without the use of visible force or coercion, so that the victims do not realize they have been conquered. “Tribute” is collected from them in the form of “legal” debts and taxes, and they believe they are paying it for their own good, for the good of others, or to protect all from some enemy. Their captors become their “benefactors” and “protectors”.

    Although this is the slowest to impose. It is often quite long lasting, as the captives do not see any military force arrayed against them, their religion is left more or less intact, they have freedom to speak and travel, and they participate in “elections” for their rulers. Without realizing it, they are conquered, and the instruments of their own society are used to transfer their wealth to their captors and make the conquest complete.
