Thanks for the clarification.
I am also an agnostic, so at least we share that.
Well, ethnically/culturally I'm Roman Catholic. I was raised in it, church every Sunday.
I went to Catholic High School, was baptized, had communion, was confirmed, and know the New Testament along with Church History and when I have kids some day, they'll be baptized, have communion, and be confirmed - so they can have the same good sense to reject it that I did.
But the point is, I can speak about that religion with some authority - certainly enough to know where the money goes... for that new parking lot, those marble floors, the Vatican, hiring lawyers to defend priests and that Bishop in the luxury apartment in Manhattan.
Just because they might use 1/3 of your tithe on helping the poor, it doesn't make up for the 2/3 that they spend on themselves.
