Do you have any links where the Roman Catholic Church BANNED the Bible?
OJG just gave them to in the papal edicts and "bulls".
Banning the word from the public is no different than banning it in it's entirety...it is nothing more than an attempt at domination through mind control (or lack of) by the control of available information..
It may have been better had they succeeded in that effort. When the theocracy collapsed, the errant teachings would have gone with them. There is a good chance that the pedophilia of the RCC may never have developed as it's doctrines and rituals wouldn't even exist, or would have been minimal.
