I’m curious what people think. Basically, China and the Vatican need to agree on Bishops.

I personally have a mixed feelings. I’m American…“the history books tell it, they tell it so well…Bob Dylan” about the separation of church and state. Why should a government interfere with how a religion operates?

On the other hand, the roman empire and the Catholic church worked together in early church history. Perhaps that is ok. I’m interested in hearing thoughts and opinions.
