"First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out — because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out — because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out — because I was not a Jew. And then they came for me — and there was no one left to speak for me. – Martin Niemöller „Eloször a szocialistákért jöttek, és nem emeltem fel értük a szavamat – mert nem voltam szocialista. Aztán a szakszervezetek tagjaiért jöttek, és nem emeltem fel értük a szavamat – mert nem voltam szakszervezeti tag. Aztán a zsidókért jöttek, és nem emeltem fel értük a szavamat – mert nem voltam zsidó. Aztán értem jöttek, és már nem volt, aki felemelje a szavát - értem.” – Martin Niemöller Als sie die Sozialdemokraten einsperrten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Sozialdemokrat. Als sie die Gewerkschafter holten, habe ich nicht protestiert; ich war ja kein Gewerkschafter. Als sie die Juden holten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Jude. Als sie mich holten, gab es keinen mehr, der protestieren konnte. – Martin Niemöller

My choicest political adviser is God, who told me to run for the Presidency.- Rev. Pat Robertson, quoted in the Church Times , March 1988

When all countries lived under absolutist governments, the Churches enjoyed a much closer relationship with the State than they do in democratic societies. The Church happily accommodated some of the cruellest rulers in history.

In recent centuries the Roman Church has always favoured authoritarian regimes that have allowed it privileges, while opposing liberal and democratic governments that have not. For example, in 1862 Pius IX concluded a concordat with the right-wing Roman Catholic President of Ecuador, who had achieved power through a coup against the liberal government. Roman Catholicism was to be the only religion permitted and was to be given a dominant role in the country's affairs. The Church was granted total control of education. This was the sort of arrangement that the Church would try to emulate wherever it could....
