I just heard a bit on NPR and I have to rant and blow off steam on the catholics, who are supposed to help the poor and serve the people, have spent around $130Million to take over Robert Schuler's crystal church that went into bankruptcy and now it's owned by the catholics.

I'm sure the catholic god is very pleased with his new home.

Being a long recovered catholic, I find this so obscene.

In spite of things like this, I still believe that Christians have done a better job of taking care of the poor than most charities have. There are many people in the churches who have a true love for the services they provide to the needy.

I'm talking about the obscene money spent for this major gross glass structure... for WHAT? One can do their praying at home if they so want to talk to their god(s).

And Orange County where this structure is located has thousands sleeping on the streets.

Such hypocrisy.

That's true, there are millions and millions of even poor Christians who would take in people or helping others because they are Christian, I mean there are a lot of those prosperity Christians but with the average everyday normal folk, they have a heart of charity over any other group or religion.
