"moral authority"?! LOL, the Church has always supported fascism, see Italy (Mussolini), Germany (Hitler), Spain (Franco), Portugal, Argentina, Chile, Croatia etc. So, perhaps you mean "fascist morality"... or "moral authoritharianism", maybe? The Church is just a dangerous italian medieval sect which interest is one: MONEY. In order to earn money they own and control banks, financial companies and politicians, and ALWAYS
support fascist governments. It has nothing to do with faith, religion, spirituality and charity. I mean: NOTHING.
