Response to lazy contemporist view of history
Clergy had a lot of power, and they hurt, even killed, very many quite innocent people. But "their wings were clipped" after they had misused their power again and again, being replaced by secular, even often elected, politicians. Probably nobody can prove that politicians will do what they promise, any more than that clergy will be successful in controlling God's activities by their prayers and rituals.
