I actually feel bad for the nuns. I'm sure a lot of people, myself included, stopped practicing in and tithing to the Church because of the scandal.
The sad thing is, that this is a totally unnecessary step to get the money. One of the things Dan Brown got right about his conspiracies in DVC and A&D is the vast amount of wealth, liquidated and other, that the Church sits on. Not to mention the added "gifts" they get, the fact that their properties are untaxed, etc.
But, yeah, those poor homeless, living in the lap of luxury are the ones breaking the bank Rolling Eyes
