Norm finally admits that the RCC is not the body of Christ simply to protect money... a tax exemption... typical protect the organization attitude.

The Catholic Church in particular has always been about money. And power. Always. Indulgences were a blatant example of this, and they go back arguably to the 6th century. Buy your way out of sin/purgatory/hell. The RCC hasn't been about Jesus for a millennium or more.

FWIW, the LDS church NEVER was about Jesus...it was a con from day-one. So I'm not just picking on Norm and the RCC.

I think some of the smaller "neighborhood" churches are more genuine. But all the "biggies" (RCC, LDS...any that report to a higher central -corporeal- authority) are about money, not "spirituality" of any sort.
