When the King of France couldn’t pay back his loans, he decided to have them trumped up on heresy charges...............

This is why separation of church and state is such a great idea.

actually ....just my opinion but the Constitution makes no mention of Jefferson’s famous “wall” but rather bans the Establishment of a State Religion.

A concept Europe has always known all too well and what happened to the Templars more addresses that than the Wall of Separation which is a platitude....or is it canard?

I prefer the way we were for 160 years before Everson when the Wall concept was unheard of.

We still imprison bad clergy and corrupt ministers in our own way, it’s just harder to convict by jury than by King’s edict.

Btw....the King of France could not have persecuted the Templars without the Vatican’s approval...no way....revisionist thought to the contrary is wishful thinking.
