BiffDangler: So wait a second. Imagine if you are entitled to a bonus and your boss says "hey, I am going to do something really good and give away your bonus!"I think everyone here would be pissed.
Farking Canuck: Good start. Now sell of some of the billions you have tied up in art and real estate and actually make a difference./and stop covering up child rape of course
ladyfortuna: dugitman: This guy seems determined to work himself into having a "heart attack".He's actually making me start to semi-kinda-maybe-sorta respect the church, or at least part of it. We'll see where he goes I guess.
GAT_00: Really? You decided to screw over the janitor instead of selling off a millennia of loot that has accumulated in the Vatican?That's just an asshole move.
Captain Dan: Solid Muldoon: Tax the churches. If they want to play in the political arena, which they have been doing more and more each year, they need to buy a ticket like the rest of us.lolwut.jpgThe church has been getting continuously less involved in the political arena for the past 1000 years.

GAT_00: And so why exactly could the bonuses not be paid and that money be donated anyway?
BarkingUnicorn: Jesus was one of the greatest trolls of all time. Billions of bites, counting both believers and non-believers who were provoked to strong reactions by his words.
xantos: So if I rtfa correctly, instead of paying the extra special bonus a vatican employee would expect to receive a handful of times during their career, the pope took some money from his personal charity fund, and of all things spent it on charity. Meaning not only did the workers not get a bonus but the same amount got spent on charity as a pre-bonus budget would have allocated.
Theeng: Yup, glad to see the "Well why doesn't he sell all his stuff!" crap.Because if he started selling off church property someone would kill him off, he knows this, what he is doing now is probably the best thing he can do. Slowly changing the church in such a way as to make the change as lasting as possible, rather than something the church elite can bury as soon as he gets knocked off.
Captain Dan: Pope Francis has been riding a streak of good deeds that make me hope for the best. He's pissing off very powerful interests within the Church.If he dies of a heart attack this year, I want a full autopsy by an independent medical examiner.
PepperFreak: Let me know when that shiatstain gives up all the gold and the castle and the rest of the bullshiat the church has and donates that to the poor.funny how the head of the jesus fan club lives a very un-jesus like life.
xria: ladyfortuna: dugitman: This guy seems determined to work himself into having a "heart attack".He's actually making me start to semi-kinda-maybe-sorta respect the church, or at least part of it. We'll see where he goes I guess.Really? He writes an order to give away other peoples money to charity and that gets him respect?
tylerdurden217: How about redirecting it all to a charity that counsels victims of sexual abuse?
Aarontology: How about you sell off some of the property the Church has instead of f*cking over the workers?
Dixon Cider: So he did the christian thing?Gotta every now and again....
