Money - the Focus of America

Close at heels of the other story I blogged about is this one about the US Catholic Church. As I exited from my Hotmail account this headline screamed out for attention: "US Catholic Church a $170 billion business". The article, written in the aftermath of the appointment of new pope in the Vatican is all about the challenges that he would be facing. This article focuses on the $170 billion business of the Catholic churches. The write up draws broad comparisons between the Catholic church and the few corporations that spend as much money ($170 billion) in a year. There is no data on how much the church makes, I am pretty sure it is a lot more compared to how much it spends.
