People who don't live and/or work in the world of politics don't know HOW corrupt the whole system is. I'm not a bit surprised, since I've known
for years how corrupt the Catholic Religion is. And many others are as well. Don't get me started on the Evangelists!
Here is a nice anecdote for ya. Something I have witnessed myself. In Brazil, at the city of Aparecida do Norte, you can find the world's second
biggest basilic/cathedral. The only other one bigger than this one, is the one at the Vatican.

Anyway, I was there visiting Aparecida do Norte, on a business trip. What's my job? I sell a software to city governments that allows them to have a
tighter control on tax payers.
Well, guess who is the BIGGEST tax evader in Aparecida do Norte?
If you answered the Basilic of Aparecida do Norte, you won a cookie! They get DOZENS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS every year to continuously expand. They
are always building something in there. The area is huuuuge. Coincidently, one of our lawyers knew the bishop responsible for the basilic and talked
to him. The bishop said he was willing to negotiate, but that he wouldn't pay for any tax they had evaded in the past. He would only agree on paying
MORE tax from now on.
The mayor of the city doesn't want to fight the bishop either, because Aparecida do Norte is a small town with the second biggest church in the
world. That means the bishop is A LOT MORE POWERFUL than the mayor. If he wants, the bishop can turn everyone against the mayor in a snap of
So, year, the catholic church IS corrupt. Their crimes are not limited to their priests molesting children. And the catholic church is not the only
one, like I said.
So, if you think, by this news, that this is an isolated case, that this is just ONE man doing wrong, then I am sorry, but you are naive and haven't
seen how rotten the powerful institutions of this world really are.
