Interesting quote by Machiavelli

Ran across this quote today in a church history class I am taking...this was written just before the reformation.

“If Christianity had remained what its Founder made it, things would have gone differently, and mankind would have been far happier, but there is no plainer proof that this religion is falling to pieces than the fact that the people who live nearest to Rome are the least pious of any.”

—Niccolò Machiavelli
