Maybe not a new low. They sold places in heaven for a while when people were daft enough to believe the priests decided who got in.
Its so like the holy relics people want to believe in. The church preaches honesty and then sells relics and claims authenticity for things, its
anything religious for a buck. Incidentally, perhaps someone should remind his Holiness that Christ didn't like people making money from religious
Even if it is done to try to encourage people back to the Catholic Church, this type of action won't work. They could change things though by being
honest and openly dealing with the corruption around the world and leading in aid etc. The church is so damaged by stupid things like holed durexs'
etc that perhaps people are beginning to think twice about a man in a frock with a fish head on his bonce, crook in his hand and no sheep around.
Even a little more honesty about the more hidden side of religion would kindle interest, but they are the biggest group in the world consisting of
either big girls blouses or that despicable old boys club and they have led a very comfortable life in Vatican City for far too long.
