from virtueonline:

"One need only think historically what the enormous persuasive power of the almighty TEC dollar has done over the years to the Anglican Church of Mexico, the Anglican Church of Southern Africa,(ACSA) the Anglican Episcopal Church of Brazil, a number of Central American dioceses still under TEC's grip ... TEC has poured millions of dollars over the years into these provinces and organizations, along with significant help from Trinity Wall Street, the richest church in the world, to persuade them that TEC's 'gospel' will enlighten them and get them a free ride to glory.

"Only a few short years ago, the Episcopal Archbishop of Mexico and a fellow Mexican bishop absconded with $1.5 million dollars of TEC's 'mission' dollars. TEC did nothing about it ...

"The new truth emerging is that the gravy train might be over. The largess once distributed so liberally to simpatico provinces and to leverage simpatico provinces might be coming to an end or at the least seriously diminished. Bishop Stacy Sauls, the Episcopal Church's new CEO, talks of TEC being in a state of 'crisis'".

On the other hand, Jesus never had to bribe people to agree with this teachings or his agenda. Who is worse? The TEC who holds out a hand full of money or the greedy people who hold out a hand to grab the money? Shakespeare may have had it right, "A plague on both your houses!"

Why don't you ask these two Mexican bishops?

A few short years ago...I am not talking about graft. I am talking about OPULENCE....GET CURRENT....and real. There are thousands of priest and you only want to hinge your world on a needle in the haystack. CONCENTRATE on the haystack.

How many BILLIONS does the Vatican WASTE on their OPULENCE?

Speaking of money, power and other problemsHere are some interesting ones to review.

1. I love this one!

Leaks reveal bitter Vatican power struggle
By Ella Ide (AFP) 11 hours ago

VATICAN CITY The flood of secret Vatican documents leaked to the press, enraging the Holy See, aims to oust the Church's powerful number two and maybe to replace the pope himself, experts say.

The so-called "Vatileaks" scandal is a plot within the intrigue-filled Vatican City to unseat Secretary of State Tarcisio Bertone, seen by some as wielding too much power and not acting in the Church's interests, they say.

"The documents that have been leaked all concern Bertone in one way or another," Marco Politi, Vatican expert for Il Fatto Quotidiano daily, told AFP.

"This is all about damaging him to get a new secretary of state," he added.

2. Another set of view points.

Frankly, I am inclined to believe it. Mexico is a very corrupt country. Its problems are compounding.

I didn't bring it up. You asked if the story was factual and I pointed you to what I knew about it. I never said it was current. I didn't even say it was relevant to anything except to answer your question about its accuracy.

My comments were not directed at you George but to Joe and his foolish and pitiful attempt to discredit TEC.

He posted it because he grasps at straws and will look for anything to harm The Episcopal Church. Just report the post. I DID.

This article is from 2002 and the event was another 7 years prior. Can you keep it CURRENT? Saw something in this CENTURY...DECADE, perhaps?

I love catching you with your pants down and spanking that bottom.
