Like it or not you are wrong.

Like it or not you are wrong. The Eastern Orthodox Church has that same unbroken line to the apostles. Before there was a Pope there were 5 Patriarchs. The Patriarch of Rome believing his country was richest believed he should be the supreme patriarch the other 4 disagreed feeling that concentrating power like that was wrong hence the schism. The Pope was created and became a political figure from whence all your fun little Opus Dei conspiracies and Jesuit assassin conspiracies come from. The Orthodox church continued on hardly involved in politics compared to the Catholics.
