Apparently, the Child Abuse Settlements Haven't Hurt Them Too Much

From The Week magazine:

Good week for: The God squad, after the Vatican purchased a controlling interest in Italy’s AC Ancona soccer club and announced that the team and its fans would henceforth eschew taunting the opposition, cursing, and bribing officials. The team will soon receive a pep talk from Pope Benedict XVI.
Now, who are the opposition teams going to thank for making their victory possible? And one has to wonder if this is only the beginning of the church's attempt to diversify their holdings of idols.

Meanwhile, here in California, priests have been asked to donate a month's salary to the church to help fund a $200 million sexual abuse settlement.
