After lobbying for it, the Catholic Church gets up to 1.4 billion just on it's own.

Here's the most amazing part:

 

Quote

According to an analysis of federal data conducted by the Associated Press, millions of dollars are "going to dioceses that have paid huge settlements or sought bankruptcy protection because of clergy sexual abuse cover-ups." Data shows that the majority of the church’s money was approved during the loan program’s first two weeks. However, in that same time, many local businesses were unable to receive loans from the initial $349 billion funding to the program because it was first-come, first-served. In total, nearly 500 loans exceeding $1 million each were approved for Catholic entities.

The churches are lobbying for billions in taxpayer money because with the Quarantines, they can't recoup their losses faster than their victims.

 

Most every other Church is acting like God is only 'on call' where the collection plate is. Meanwhile over here, we're getting an entire regional convention direct from the top tier of the JW's, free of charge, on our website; in a hundred different languages.

I get mixed up with aghast and agog (and amagog).
