    And which is the richest church on earth? I will give you one guess, why do you think it is so secretive about its accounts?

    But… Argentina is a country built by greed. Stolen land, genocided native population, adjacent countries robbed. Its a way of life, VC is a national trait. But, they came unstuck when they tried to steal the Falkland Islands.
    Any hope of refirm, any chance of a change in national characteristics. The whole place is founded on Spanish theiving and Popery. Not a chance.

    Perhaps this archbishop should put his name in the hat to govern Argentina, he seems to know everything, mind you hindsight is a wonderful thing. All very well saying things, so perhaps the Catholic Church will put their hands in their pockets and help the impoverished. Just an observation

    Perhaps the catholic church should first try to reconcile with its Victims.

    Correction - NOT “I'm sure 1, s, 3, 4, and 5 will all become this news.” BUT “I'm sure 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 will all WELCOME this news.”
