    That is the same as asking ''Would the United States be better off if the central federal government was relieved of its power''.
    Without the central power, the rest would fall apart.
    It is about controlling your sheep, not allowing them to graze at will.

    It wouldn't be Catholic if they did but neither am I Catholic so of course I think man has no right to rewrite a bible and God plainly makes it clear about idols and saints etc so that is wrong and the bible says Mary would be remembered not worshiped through and it is a shame I think. Then too the catholic church pays off everyone so their sexually criminal priests  avoid prosecution for their crimes of raping and molesting and just send them on to new places with recommendations and any Catholic that knows about this and does not try to do something are just as guilty to what happens to others these priests will offend!

    Imagine a world in which generations of human beings come to believe that certain films were made by God or that specific software was coded by him.  Imagine a future in which millions of our descendants murder each other over rival interpretations of Star Wars or Windows 98.  Could anything be more ridiculous?  And yet, this would be no more ridiculous than the religious world we are living in.  Removing the Vatican would not alter the group think mentality already programmed over the centuries.
