Unfortunately, what you say is only half true. The Catholic church may be don’t do directly partisan politics, but it is far from the truth to say that do not interfere in political issues - and does it with great power. In Brazil, and I think in the most of the West, the Catholic church has a large weight in the choice of the Congress, the ministers of the Supreme Court and the President. Sometimes operates openly, sometimes behind the scenes. It is because of an open campaign of the Catholic church in my country that an abortion is a serious crime, like euthanasia, just to give some examples. The Catholic Church has learned nothing in half a millennium - what happened is that much of his power was taken from him. This is why the Catholic church does not have a more harmful influence. Any monotheistic religion is totalitarian and religious’ power over society only stops when it encounters an opposite power.
