One can only scratch their head and wonder......


influence ...ecclesiastical establishments had on Civil Socity?

Ah. It just goes to show James Madison was right. In his famous Memorial and Remonstrance he wrote:

What influence in fact have ecclesiastical establishments had on Civil Society? In some instances they have been seen to erect a spiritual tyranny on the ruins of the Civil authority; in many instances they have been seen upholding the thrones of political tyranny: in no instance have they been seen the guardians of the liberties of the people.

I added the emphasis above.
