Ecclesiastes Sociology Help

Some countries have an official or state religion known as the ecclesia e religious organization that is so integrated into the dominant culture that it claims as its membership all members of a society. Membership in the ecclesia occurs as a result of being born into the society, rather than by any conscious decision 011 the part of individual members. TIle linkages between the social institu tions of religion and government are often very ongin such societies. Although no true ecclcsu exists in the contemporary world, the Anglican church (the official church of England), the Lutheran church in Sweden and Denmark, the Roman Catholic church in Italy and Spain, and the Islamic mosques in Iran and Pakistan come fairly close.
