High cost The Catholic church is bringing the Pope to Australia for their Youth Day on his worldwide tour. The Catholic church, one of, if not the richest organisation in the world, will be getting the Australian taxpayer to pay for the privilege of the occasion. I am a pagan and resent that this visit by the Catholic Pope will cost us $86 million. Surely the Catholic church could pay for the privilege of their spiritual leader’s tour? After all, this is a big promo for the Catholic church, not for the down and outs in Australia doing it tough. The $86 million would be better spent on Indigenous well-being and the homeless, rather than forking it out to an organisation already abundantly wealthy. Food for thought for the Australian Labor Party?
