I didn't choose the monk life.  The monk life chose me.

They'd let you watch, they would invite you, but the Gulfstreams they fly would not excite you!

But have these men have taken a supreme vow of celibacy, like their fathers, and their fathers before them?

UtileDysfunktion: jaytkay: Archbishop's house.
[upload.wikimedia.org image 320x240]

In a neighborhood where a tiny studio condo costs at least $150K.

Yep, Cardinal Cody was the speaker at my high school graduation.  Asshole showed up in a limo, wearing so much jewelry it took two of his guys in suits and Raybans to help him out of the car.  He then delivered an hour long filibuster (inside a sweltering, non-air-conditioned gym with all of us wearing robes) on why WE all needed to give more money to the Catholic Church.  Even the Brothers were not pleased.

/never got over that, obviously


I don't think it was the jewelry that weighed him down....

I believe you're correct, but I was too lazy to work out a 'Citation needed' headline.

super_grass: What? You thought that all buddhists are exotic, austere saints you saw on TV and magazines?

They're just religious adherents, no different than your priest or rabbi. People in the far east probably think that the catholic church is just as incorruptible as you do buddhists.


Well, from what I've read in manga and watched in anime, they think the Catholic Church is an organization that secretly fights demons, werewolves and the big daddy of them all, vampires. And all the priests are secret super warriors who know how to throw blessed knives and shoot huge guns that are loaded with blessed bullets like they are straight out of John Woo movie.

I'm kind of sad that this isn't reality... Well, except for the super slutty nuns. I went to Catholic school. That's just...no...


/don't think the any of the priests were super warriors but the nuns...

Baptist Preachers in American mega-churches read the article and wondered why all of the monks had to share the same private plane.
