The Catholic Church, or Roman Catholic Church, is the largest Christian church, with approximately 1.3 billion baptised Catholics worldwide as of 2018. As the world's oldest and largest continuously functioning international institution, it has played a prominent role in the history and development of Western civilization. The pope, who is the Bishop of Rome is the chief pastor of the church. The church's administration, the Holy See, is in the Vatican City, a small enclave of Rome, of which the pope is head of state.

Ecclesiastical Megalomania

From the book Ecclesiastical Megalomania by John W. Robbins:[1][2]

Ayn Rand was right when she wrote in 1967: "The Catholic Church has never given up the hope to re-establish the medieval union of church and state, with a global state and a global theocracy as its ultimate goal ..."
