    I live in Italy and 8% of almost every 1000 euro paid in taxes goes to the Vatican. This equals about 1billion euro per year. This is just from the Italian tax payer. Now in Austria there is a 400 euro church tax per year per family i think. The Vatican also has a bank which deals in investments, and also there is the tourism to Rome and other religious cities.

    Imagine all the poor sick and hungry people that would feed.

    For example the Pope is going to visit Vienna this week, and the total cost is 8million euro. What a waste!!!

    $660 million???

    That would feed a lot of hungry kids, wouldn't it?

    It's too bad it's being wasted on that church. People starve so that some can maintain their superstitions.

    From the very generous members of the Catholic Church. I think that they also got a pretty nice amount from their insurance company.

    The Vatican has over 60 billion in banks around the world , although some believe this is much higher .

    They get the money from those collection plates .

    They got it from the people, they have a huge following, and they don't care about spending God's money.

    From tithing believers...it's funny - there are people who would rather die than denounce their religion, but they're forking over money to pedophiles.
