Cool Habemus papam

. . those popes . .

Always had to mix themselves in with politics . .

Well , it should be remembered that in old times the Church also had political power . .

There were Church-institutions such as the inquisition . . . and a sort of surveillance if people were loyal to their church.

A 'state within a state'.

.

. . those times are over though.

Today religion is a private matter and religion has lost in the West . .

. . though , had you , for example , said during the Middle Ages "God doesn't exist".
