"Following a change in ethical policy guidelines the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops in 2003, Christian Brothers Investment Services now have investments of tens of millions of dollars in companies that make sizeable profits from commercial pornography. The Bishops' guidelines permit these investments because the new rules allow the church to do business with a company as long as income from pornography does not represent "a significant portion of its revenues".

You can watch the part of the documentary where they uncover the info about investments by the church

mini how does the Catholic Church make money out of porn?
Genuine question, I have never heard of it before and am a bit horrified.

Yep, the same church that makes money out of porn tells women to keep their clothes on.

Another old fool in a frock spouting crap - but what do you expect from a Church that covers up crimes against children by its 'holy' priests and denies women control of their own bodies.

Pah, humbug.

As well as reminding me of one of the reasons why i will never visit Italy again. Ive experienced attitudes like this within my own family. Its something ive had to fight against all my life. And prats like this "man" spouting his hateful crap just make me want to stay away even more.
