IMO - and I believe in Fact, the Catholic Church is the largest, richest and most diversified company in the World.
And it sickens me.
Just do some simple searches for info on the *worth* of the Catholic Church.
If you’ve a person with half a brain and half a heart it will sicken you too.

They are far and above the richest organization in the world. They make the Fortune 50 look like childs play. The amount of wealth owned or controlled by that church is truly mind boggling. This is why they have so much influence. It's not about religion and God or they wouldn't amass so much wealth and rent the land back to farmers that they purchased from said farmers for pennies on the dollar. Over and over throughout history this organization has continued to amass more and more wealth during some of the most difficult times. That's when they are at their best.
