Consider this: All employers have to abide by some basic rules and laws. Workman’s compensation insurance, basic safety in the workplace, certain health insurance which includes birth control contraceptives.
Now consider this: MOST EMPLOYERS WOULD RATHER SAVE THAT MONEY AND PUT IT IN THE BANK, BUT THEY CAN’T. So if the Catholic Church wants to avoid paying for these and other work related insurances and programs it’s really simple, DON’T HAVE EMPLOYEES. End of debate.
BTW how many employees did Jesus have? Why do churches need employees? How come the devoted priests and followers don’t do whatever it is that needs to be done themselves? Jesus did. How come the Catholic Church is the largest landholoder in the World while so many of it’s fans are homeless??
I’d love to see the look on their faces when they get to the Pearly Gates as they watch the employees go through as they sit outside.
Remember: Vampires were once people too
