    It wouldn't surprise me if the church runs with the idea that the root of their power is money and legislators who can be bought with that money, not voters or parishoners.  The PTB don't need bodies anymore.  The RCC could turn itself into some giant PAC: keep right on claiming to speak for all Catholics (and therefore all humanity), but have no actual congregation beyond tiny far-right groups like Opus Dei, SSPX, and other "traditionalist" Catholics.  Their business would be all about sucking in money and paying it out to people who'll bring them more money, with social and cultural conservatism on the side.

    Something's wrong when the bad guys are the utopian ones.
