Anonymous asked: What do you mean when you say you believe in obedience of state to church?
It means that the Church should not hold secular authority, but secular authority should honour the fact that the Church exists as a moral authority in a nation, and thus should be obeyed. Whatever the state does, it must not contradict the moral teachings of the Church. The State will always claim to be making decisions based on practical but also moral grounds. Since moral grounds cannot be established on a humanistic basis (as modern democracies attempt in a fit of delusion), the Church must be sought out for such guidance.
