      I love it when you try to change the subject. It's a sure sign your collar is getting tight.

      If you want to know why not write to the people that you want to know about?

      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.

      He ordered his clergy to go out into the streets to find and care for the poor in person.

      I want to know what you and others think. You know that, but are avoiding the elephant in the room.
      In another thread you pointed at protestant churches being driven by money. Here's an example of the Roman church doing the same thing and you work to avoid it.

      Reminds me of a story of how St. Peter's was funded. Not completely on the up-and-up. But then again, it is just a building and not the Church.

      Yes, I thought the web site maker and probably the event organisers were being very cheeky with that.

      I think it doesn't matter one way or the other because it is a fund raising event run by people who are not directly working for or under the direct supervision of people who do work for the Catholic Church. Even if it was run by the local bishop's staff directly I don't see what is so dreadful about having beer available. But if it bothers you - for whatever reason - then don't go.

      So you would welcome drug dealer contributions from the drugs they sell to your kids? Look the other way at where the funding is coming from. Got it.

      Last time I checked I believe it says that God can turn evil to good. Secondly how do you know where the money coming into your church was earned? I am sure that not all of it is clean
