    And yet, I would say that the ruling coalition of government has every right to act in reigning in powers and privileges that may have been previously granted to the Church, just as the autocratic and often unpopular bishops may act to lobby the government directly and enjoin their laity to grant, through the democratic process, such as they may desire. They don't have the political pull they used to have so the entitlements they currently enjoy are bound to shrink. If they are able to burnish up their now much sullied image and regain influence among their flocks in the future, they may once again exercise political influence sufficient to improve their position in society.

    It's a horse race.

    What "powers and privileges" do you see that the government has every right to reign in?
