Reparations, Catholic Style

Some people, claiming to be descendants of the Knights Templar, are suing the Church for land the Church seized..hmmmm… 700 years ago, wanting $150 billion in compensation.

Many people view the Church as a big cash cow, waiting for their opportunity to stake their claim to it.  But by this reasoning, I want $200 Billion from Italy for land the Romans seized from my ancestors.  And while we’re at it, I’m sure I had some relatives who were around when Babylon sacked Israel.  So give up the cash, Iran!

    You were too clever…rats.

    As a Jewish person, I was going to bring up 6AD and the destruction of the 2nd Holy Temple, but you even covered that one.

    D@ng you! Now I will never get my reparation!

    I want reparation for the land King Henry the eighth took from my church. Then I want reps from Queen Elizabeth II for the land Elizabeth the First took from my ancestors plus all the interest that would have accrued from a saving account at 5% APR. Heck, she has that in paintings hanging in her loo.
