Well That Almost Never Happens

As a follow up to an earlier post noting that the catholic church was urging parishioners not to donate to the Susan Komen charity, which funds mammograms for poor women, today's WaPo, notes that the church has apologized. No word on whether the apology came with a check. Good for the folks at Komen for standing up to the church.

Did you know that it costs $30,000 for one of those robes? And that Catholic schools have to send half of what they make in tuition and other income to the Vatican? I didn't until I learned it from Anne Johnson. She has a great post about this at The Gods Are Bored.

I'm not getting too excited that those creepy old men in Rome have gone all humanitarian just yet.
