Sol, I've always believed the RC church is somehow secretly tied to the mob. I also believe the mafia gives a LOT of money to the church. I'm really interested in your opinion on this, thanks.

You don't think it's a possibility? I'm an expert - I watched The Godfather at least 3 times.

Sure, I believe the are ties between the two organizations. Italians and the vatican? C'mon! How can they NOT be?

MY point in the previous posting was that it's Ratzi's JOB to say such things whether he believes in them or not, and without regard to what it costs the group he's talking to.

"yeah, sure - you should ignore the mafia. and if they shoot you just remember that I'm prayin' for ya!" It doesn't cost HIM anything...
