Are you aware that the current pope, Pope Francis, is all about eliminating these rampant displays of wealth and power? He's very humble, and from what I've read seems to really wants himself (hopefully the vatican too) to actually practice the teachings that Jesus preached.

It's funny because the new pope did just that and replaced this chair and his robes with ordinary ones.

He also refused to stay in the mansion the pope usually stays in and he's living in a convent with other poor priests

gold throne of the pope

i can give you $75 for it,

there's just not much of a market for holy chairs made of precious metals these days and it will sit on the shelf for months

Let's not take into account that the throne is probably an artifact and is not something to be simply thrown out.

Yes it's valuable, but they have other valuable items that can be sold and are not priceless artifacts.

In the case that the throne is not an artifact then I apologize. I'm not a major in in the subject of ancient chairs.

Yet again. Another Bible verse taken out of context. This was a story of a rich guy who said he wanted to be saved. Jesus asked if he kept all the commandments. The rich man said yes. Jesus said. Okay. Go sell your stuff and follow me. It was a test to see what he loved more. His things. Or Jesus.

Mathew 26:11

Has anyone heard of the Green Revolution? No?
Well it's time to educate yourselves FJ!

For you lazy bums that can't search information on Wiki...
Green Revolution refers to a series of research, development, and technology transfer initiatives, occurring between the 1940s and the late 1970s, that increased agriculture production around the world.
They sent large quantities of food to Africa to help prevent starvation.
-Sounds like a brilliant plan right? So you'd think.
As more food entered Africa, the population increased. There was a direct collation between the two. Because the population increased, more food was required to prevent starvation. After a while from this recursive effect, they could no long produce enough food. And even worse, when the Green Revolution ended.... well lets just say there were more people starving by the end than the beginning.

In conclusion, Africa (the more uncivilized part that is) is utterly doomed until it can start acting like an actual functional civilization.

TLDR = Giving food to "starving Africans" doesn't work that well.

Now don't get me started on how quoting religion ia ******** (I'm not even religious and I know you're a moron if you do so

I'll say it again--it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God!

Doesn't matter if the new pope doesn't sit on a fancy chair or wears plain robes, have you SEEN the **** that's in the Vatican museums, there's enough wealth their to bail out both Greece and Cyprus and that's just the stuff on show.

Except that throne is actually The Holy See, and is considered a person in the Vatican.

a chair is considered a person...?

How, when, why?

Actually, they cant sell the golden throne because the throne is legally a real person named "The Holy See" and is the owner of the Vatican.
