The Vatican's got to pay the bills somehow…
Bishop admits church has received drug money. Where’s the bible-beating crackdown, Ratzi?
A Mexican bishop has admitted that the local Catholic church receives donations from drug traffickers, but claimed these are “purified” through good works.
Bishop Ram?n God?nez said “bad money shouldn’t be burned it should be transformed“. He said the church should ignore the origins of donations just as Jesus showed no curiosity about the expensive perfume Mary Magdalene used to wash his feet.
Government officials have said that receiving illicit money is illegal, but shied away from opening a money laundering investigation into the church.
Yes, it should be transformed into legal fees and settlements, pronto, hmmm?
