    Also, the RC church hierarchy tries to change the secular law and influence the government so that its vision of morality gets imposed on everyone, not just Catholics.

    American exceptionalism is America's road to perdition.

      ...and as a group the RC clergy has always been pretty political. But then so what, no one either in the secular realm or in the church is compelled to convey any other power to their views as any other individual. We all try to influence here too. The church hierarchy will surely take whatever power they can get away with. They're no more influential than a union or political group.

      IMHO, the laws regarding tax exemption for religious should be way more exclusive to actual churches and the restrictions on mixing politics and religion at the altar should be far more strictly enforced. But again, clergy will breach any boundary they can get away with to be as influential at they can muster. But that's not their job. Nor do they care if it pleases the members.
