My opinion is that that with the politicisation of the Church by the Emperor Constantine in the 4th century AD the RC church ceased to be credible as a Christian institution.

When does any religion become credible? At what point does a religion cease to be a cult and become a religion? Actually, some might say there's a strange inverse phenomenon going on at the moment in politics. Toryism was a religion until Brexit when it narrowed down to become a cult. It reminds one of one of those strange ancient Roman cults where the acolytes worshipped a divine goddess and castrated themselves to show their devotion. Even to the extent of self mutilation. Which is what will happen when this country throws itself off the cliff after October 31. In the future more developed societies will read about it in their history books and express astonishment.

And, at what point does “hearing voices” move from being a psychological disorder to be hearing Jesus talking to you in response to prayer ?
