I hope you know that the new pope has actually started selling a lot of the gold and other items and is doing just that.

To complain about the Catholic church you people have to use the old pope as an example.

The new one is actually a pretty cool guy.

And on top of that being a pastor/priest( /whatever that church calls it) is a full time job. How else is a non-profit organization going to pay 1-2 full time jobs that require not only for them to go to 4 years of seminary school, but a college degree as well. (not sure what degree it is, but I know that my cousin had to go through that to become a pastor)

To further your point; the annual cost of tax exemption for religious institutions to the US is around $71.1bn

It depends on which church.

"The hairdresser scrapes together $600 of her own money each month to keep up the program because the Prayer Palace – one of Canada's largest evangelical churches – stopped running it five years ago. Other charitable works, like a promised orphanage in Brazil, either dried up or never materialized.

Meanwhile, the three white pastors – Paul Melnichuk and his 40-year-old twin sons, Tim and Tom – lead lavish lives in contrast to the mainly working-class black families that make up the bulk of the church.

Between them, the pastors have amassed a real estate fortune worth about $12 million. Each owns a multi-million-dollar country estate north of Toronto (Tim's is worth as much as $5.5 million), they share a Florida vacation villa, and the pastors and their wives drive luxurious cars – among them a Porsche Cayenne SUV, a Lexus RX 330 SUV and a Mercedes-Benz CLK 320 convertible.

Well, if the catholic church wanted to help the poor, the could sell some of their property (the catholic church is the largest private property owner in the world), or spend some of their vast, vast wealth on the poor.

The catholic church is the leading shareholder in Beretta firearms, not only is it Ironic that the church is making money off weapons, it proves that the church is a business that gets donations for no reason. lets not forget the sale of indulgences that was used to build basilicas .

(I was wrong, they're the 3rd largest private land owner in the world)
" The 110 acres of The Holy See that constitute Vatican City. Also, roughly 177 million more acreage of various lands owned by the Catholic Church throughout the globe, including the hundreds of Vatican embassies that are legally titled to The Holy See as an independent nation. "

I'm gonna add to what everyone else said, Churches also spend millions on big crosses. Ain't that a waste?
Oh and my grandmothers church took advantage of her, since she had Alzheimer's and they convinced her to give them 10s of thousands of dollars, nearly every month. We almost got into a big lawsuit with them before they gave up and gave some of it back.

Not saying all churches are bad, but many are.

You're absolutely right, no atheist has ever killed a person for their religion, at any time, for any reason, ever, and a person certainly couldn't disprove this claim through thirty seconds of using Google.

Nobody kills in the name of atheism. And if somebody did, it would be because they were a psychopath, not an atheist. On the flip side, religious people who aren't psychopaths kill people all the time, because they have been deluded into thinking that they are actually doing God's work.

Tell that to the baptist church I used to go to, now I'm not saying it's impossible for the pastor to afford a brand new 4 story house and several cars but it does seem unlikely since he doesn't have a secondary career.

I just realized my fib.    
   
What I meant was that... while I dislike religion, I hate people who hate religion.    
   
I mean we've got some cool stuff like Buddhism, Taoism, and Shinto    
And I'd say the vast majority of religious people aren't bad people.   
   
But we've got all of these self loving atheists and other bastards who blame religion instead of the men leading leading large groups to do bad things using whatever excuse they can find or generally just getting caught up in their own psychotic fervor.   
   
You'll have to forgive me. I'm kind of a clumsy person.

**** this post, one of my roommates works in a church, it's not like any money they receive they spend on gold bars to make a jail cell that holds all gay rights, cure to world hunger, cure to cancer, and Half Life 3 away from the public.

The homeless guy is just going to spend any money he receives on booze and drugs and continue being a worthless **** stain on society

And the church that receives any donations has to spend it all on bills, upkeep of the church, events, food for the poor, shelter for the poor, donating the money they receive to less fortunate people, sending people on mission trips, and whatever is left over after all of that goes to the pastors (pro tip: it's not that much)

Implying the priests don't spend their money on booze, hookers and drugs.
Sorry if i'm biased because of what is happening in my country (last two letters in my username) but around here you see priests driving or being driven in 80000E cars. And that's besides all the booze and hookers (which by the way they love).
That's why i don't believe in churches and the so called holy people. They're hypocrites with well paid jobs (or highly paid bribes, not sure which).

You can't go to say "not all churches are bad... BUT EVERY HOMELESS PERSON WILL CONTINUE TO BE AS WORTHLESS AS THEY HAVE BEEN".
The soldier that killed Binladen is now homeless and must beg for money.

Dude he's right except for that last part. You generalized all homeless people as being worthless and good-for-nothings, but not churches ohhh no they are all good!
Especially seeing as the churches aren't acting completely sovereign at all, they are all part of THE church. And the church has a history of indirectly or directly forcing people to give them all their money, which they then spend on glorious new church buildings and fancy robes.
And what's left may go to those who actually need it, to look fantastic and benevolent on the world stage.

But sometimes, and I mean sometimes, when you give that haggard, sick old homeless man a few dollars to go get something to eat, he'll get up, go to the nearest liquor store and come out with a beer or two.
