Lifestyles of the Rich and Pious

There is a great article on the opulent lifestyles of the “princes of the church”.  The Lavish Homes of American Archbishops is running on the CNN website.

Funny, they keep saying that they are bankrupt and that there are no resources for the victims of sexual crimes committed by their clergy!  They complain that people like me are just looking for an easy payday.  And yet, they will spend parishioners’ donations to live in splendor.  Makes you wonder where the hierarchy of the church lost its way!

  1. In my opinion all religion is a scam.
    It’s a place where the true villains in life go to hide and scam some more, the faithful are like fish in a barrel to these cons . They sell them back their own imaginations. their faith”
    There are good religious people but they are few and far between in the leadership of all the faiths. Sweeping generalization, perhaps; but does it not give a truer face to the hierarchy than they show?
    The church’s wealth is mammoth and unknown and like Leona Helmsley the church feels only the poor are supposed to pay their bills. The church is too rich to pay what it owes, justly.
    But buy itself 2 swimming pools for one home for a Bishop in N.J or a $2,000,000 apt make over in Rome or a $43,000,000 home for a Cardinal in Germany. Those bills they’ll gladly pay.
    The curia of the church see the whole world as liars which any shrink would call a projection..
    The church sets what kind of moral standard by denying it’s own horribly injured children as it has been ignoring us from the get go.
    When it isn’t controlling what we say through SNAP. It’s calling us liars; scam artists etc. something they’ve been doing for 2000 years and they are getting away with it.

    Now they’ve been caught with our pants down and we’re the bad guys for even mentioning it.
    Let alone demanding compensation for the harm done us..
