The importance of Vatican City

David Gibson posted this, a few days ago, the 80th anniversary of the Lateran Pacts which, among other things, regularized the status of the Vatican.  While I'm pretty sure there is not -- any longer, anyway -- a need for the Papal States, etc., it does seem to me that not only the freedom of the Church, but religious freedom generally, is powerfully aided by the fact that the Roman Catholic Church has a place.  Thoughts?
