    Not to blow their horn, but I thought the RCC had the longest standing government. Just a thought.

    I'd always wondered from whence came the white smoke, as well.

    For the moment. Which is why I said "some day".

    Under what circumstances, if any, would you support the state telling clergy of any religion who they may/may not marry?

    Polygamy and consanguinity, perhaps.

    So if the State said that clergy could only perform polygamous marriages, you'd be OK with that?

    I was obviously referring to the "may not" bit, genius.

    In any case, I said "perhaps" because I am not sure the State should intervene even in those cases.
