They've been asked this before. The answer is the same now as it was then. Most of it is literally priceless and one of a kind. How do you put a price on a seven hundred year old gold-embossed chalice that's been used to anoint and baptize hundreds of thousands of people?

Never mind the fact that a majority of that hypothetical wealth is in the form of art that cannot really be moved. You can't sell the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. It would also be pretty difficult to move a twenty ton marble statue (also several hundred years old) of some saint or religious figure.

Still think it's not reasonable for them to keep all of it? Then riddle me this, Batman. You say it's valuable, so fine. Who's going to buy it? Some Saudi prince? Maybe an American rapper that's getting bored of having fifteen elephants at his birthday party every year?

Assuming most of it could even be sold, which it can't be, you would have to actually figure out how valuable it actually is, which is almost impossible, and then find someone who would buy it, and that's a market that's basically cornered by arrogant rich assholes that destroy or ruin it's artistic and cultural value just for giggles or out of sheer boredom.

So they could go through all of these absurd hoops and maybe turn some sort of profit out of the entire headache-inducing affair. . . or they can just keep it where it is so the whole world can see it and appreciate its artistic and cultural value.

Which do you think is the better call?

Also, just for the record? I don't see you selling your second television, the video games you never play anymore, the movies you never watch anymore, and all of your other extraneous crap to feed the poor. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.

In all fairness the catholic church does give a lot to charity. Though they can be a bit greedy/excessive at times.

The Catholic Church is one of the biggest charity organisations in the world.

I'm not Catholic BTW. Just think it needs to be added.

The Catholic Church is not as ridiculously rich as people like to pretend it is.

I like it when posts start shitstorms such as this. Sometimes people give really insightful thoughts, and some answers are just outrageous.

You could have just reposted something shitty from tumblr like the rest of funnyjunk, but nope, you had to go and start a religious shitstorm, OP. Fantastic.
