And just where does a Cardinal with a vow of poverty get $600,000

A pedophile paying off so-called men of faith presumably to hide his crimes using donated money intended for charity. That is some dark, corrupt shit.

"Over the years", not a one time bribe. Where does the money come from? You. The stock market. Real estate. Corporate donors. The same place any political organization gets its wealth. Money and power corrupt. Organized religion is a cesspool of corrupt, self-entitled, sexual deviant hypocrites. Just like any cult the elite leaders brainwash their followers onto accepting dogma as truth.

Yeah I am not defending the Catholic Church on this one. There are many questions...starting with how does a Cardinal get that kind of money in the first place?
