When Italy was unified in 1870, the papal lands (which comprised a substantial part of the Italian peninsula) were confiscated and the pope was left with some properties in Rome. In 1929, under Mussolini the papacy settled for the properties now called the Vatican State (100 acres) and some other religious houses in Rome. This became Italy's solution to the separation of Church and State. Canon law continues to function within the RCC, but Catholics of diverse nationalities have freedom of conscience in that they can choose between secular and canon law. Allow the rabbinate to function, but give Jews the freedom to choose between religious and secular laws and the problem will be solved. Religious leaders don't need secular powers of office and without such powers they can be even more effective teachers of morality..
