    It does not justify it all the way, but the power of the Catholic Church at the time was quite different, including political power over sizable territory. It was in the decline by the late 19th Century, but in the not too distant past, it was greater. It also supported certain authoritarian sentiments that would concern people, down to some acceptance of slavery, though as now, conflicting opinions existed.
