A financial institution agrees to shady deals that use Catholic church buildings as collateral? I'll take a seat to watch this one unfold.

Bishops living large is not a new phenomenon for the Roman Catholic Church. Just study the history a little bit. The French Revolution was anticlerical because the church was part and parcel of the corrupt and oppressive monarchical system of France. Most noteworthy was Cardinal-Duc de Richelieu. Some Camerounese Bishops are surely having fantasies about the temporal power and wealth of people like Richelieu, but did the Bishop actually secret money for personal ends?

Well, this article does not prove that.

Some academic institutions here in America have been known to sell some of their physical structures and then turn around and lease them from the buyers. Such measures are taken in times of financial dire straits. If the church can go to a business entity that is willing to give a loan and accept the cathedral as collateral, then nothing is wrong with that. What may be wrong is how the money gets spent. Lets not be dillusional. The church is not as holy as we might want it to be. How do you think the catholic church got to be the richest church on the face of the earth? You think its through the pennies you drop in the offering trays? That will not fuel the pope's plane for his trip to your country. From its private universities and secondary schools, hospitals and clinics, money is needed to run them. And you know Paul and co stopped giving government subsidies to school a long time. Instead of having the Cathedral standing empty all day, if some one wants to give you money and have it listed in his ledger as a tax dedutible, I can care less. Christ built no cathedrals before leaving this earth. Only us the flambouyant want to rectify these castles. From the nature of those entering these houses for prayers, I doubt if any god hears their prayers. You might as well make money out of them.

The church is a non-profit making institution,and even if Satan himself were to attend mass every sunday,this will not add up to it being bargained for salaries and other expencies incured.If any thing is above the head of the Archbishop,he has to humbly summit it to the will of God and wait for solutions.The best way to do this is to explain to church workers the way the church gets its money.The second thing is to reduce the numerous epicureans that the church has to take care of.The last thing is to ask for public donations to pay off any debt.When you change church contributions from 2000 to 12000 frs,it implies you are sure the church can be run from this and be protected from unfriendly eyes.This whole saga once again shows us that as long as the church is run by human beings,there will always be strange happenings.This story reminds us about the history of the Catholic church and banks run by men of the underworld.The Archbishop is only carrying on with a tradition that has lasted so long,but he is not very lucky because Cameroon is a third world enclave with no stable fanancial situation.

Dear all
While praying for the best, prepare for the worst for even churches have lightning conductors because there is a lot of insecurity. Theft,black magic, witchcraft,homosexuality to out right murder take place in the church.
God alone knows his own people.
Catholics in particular know how to exploit people. They own the best schools, produce the best results in Cameroon but their staff are the least paid.
GOD WILL PUNISH ALL OF YOU

DR TAN OF CAMEROON,
I'm a regular news reader of the "postnews online" and comments posted thereon but it's so sad i can't read your comments which i believe are full of insight and wisdom. The reason is just because they're written in uppercase or capital letters. I'm sure i'm not alone here facing this difficulty with your comments. The reason you comment in this forum is because you have beautiful ideas that you want to share with others. But if you choose to comment in capital letters which make reading difficult, you drive readers away from your comments. Then, what is the point in commenting? When we read a piece of news item, we may comment on it and may also comment on some ideas raised by other commentators. What you haven't yet noticed is that no commentator in this forum has ever commented on those insightful ideas of your in your comments (i mean commenting on your ideas, not asking you to change writing format); which clearly indicates that nobody reads them because of their uppercase format. So, would you please correct this flaw and get yourself fully involved in this very civil and intellectual club; especially at this very critical moment in our society where we need ideas from all of you to kick start our society from where it got stalled.
