Excerpt from The Latter-Day Saints' Millennial Star, Vol. 72: February 17, 1910

After Christianity had been made the state religion of Rome, officers of the Church sought the high places for self-aggrandise ment, making merchandise of the rights associated therewith, finally arrogating to themselves in the form of councils and synods, the right of Church government which formerly had been exercised through the principle of common consent. But at this time, the lay members ceased to have a voice in their own government. The Church, raised to a place of dignity, soon assumed temporal powers, even interfering in matters of state. Dr. Mosheim declares that in the height of its power, the popes carried their insolent pretensions so far as to give themselves out for lords of the universe, arbiters of the fate of kingdoms and empires, and supreme rulers over the kings and princes of the earth. All this is priestcraft. Priesthood rules by the spirit of love under all conditions; priestcraft rules through tyranny and oppression wherever possible.
