Even so, this still bothers me WAY less than those a$$holes that are given the people who donated to rebuild it sh1t because they didn’t donate that money to their specific pet project.
@Jesus Chrysler, I mean... 300 million to rebuilt when children are dying of starvation or don’t even have clean water to drink is my issue
@seeUpee, as crappy as it is you can’t tell people how or where to donate/spend their money.
@Jesus Chrysler, France give a huuuge tax cut for restoration projects so people are just exploiting that for their own gain
@BiteMyShinyMetalA55, oh yeah I agree. If you want to go donate your money to the homeless shelter or Trump’s campaign I say go for it. Do what you want with your money, is your money.
@seeUpee, I love that the down votes show how many people would rather have a church than would actually want to help people.
@mazemarble, the Catholic Church donates more money to the poor per year than any other organization in the world. I think getting some donations to rebuild one of their most iconic churches isn't an unreasonable request.
@merimar3, have you been to the Vatican? As a Catholic I had to pay money to go in. Oh you want to go over there?you have to pay more money, oh you want to go up there on that other tour? That will be 10X the amount to get in. It is all a business, not denying that they donate money, but is nothing compared to the money they have coming in.
@seeUpee, I will not pretend that I know the finances of the church, but what do you think it costs to maintain a building like the Vatican? I'd bet my bottom dollar it's very expensive. They have artwork and architecture in there that is centuries old. The reality is, the church donates money. If you don't like that they have a charge to visit a building that is the centerpiece of the religion then don't bother donating any money elsewhere to the church either. They are not a business, but they also can't pretend that money isn't necessary for proper upkeep of all the churches in the world as well as the clergymen and priest's stipends.
@merimar3, I respect you for saying that and I respect what you believe. I am just saying that they are over doing it. Was just too much money there, an overwhelming amount considering that Jesus was poor.
You know what? Fvck being offended. Change things that are wrong, not things that personally bother you.
@Invalid User, well spoken. Have an upvote my friend
Wow... what a sick burn.
@Hatori, I dunno, I think it's missing the point.
Dafuq are they gonna do about it?
I'm just trying to figure out how any of those words are misspelled
@TheWafflingDead, I guess that person has another language for it's keyboard. It's not french cause Notre wouldn't be mispelled.
@TheWafflingDead, what’s misspelled?
@I Are Lebo, Nothing, but all those red lines underneath every word except Dame, are, and French indicate that whatever device they’re using thinks those words are spelled incorrectly
@Berntley, I see it now. Weird.
I'm French and i think these are hilarious.
They are huh good thing I don’t care
