    Some guy started any interesting thread on this just last year. He would probably love to talk to you about it.

    for those who are disappointed in the church's ability to manage money, Catholic church only has $7 billion. #winning

    Actually, it looks like it’s only a listing of public company holdings, so it wouldn’t include city center, land or the ag farms/ranches.

    Agreed. The Catholic Church has that much just in works of art.

    Also, we think it's kind of cute that you think $32 billion is a lot. $32 billion is only the amount that appears to be leaked today. You found thirteen of our LLCs? *snort* Yeah, that's all of them. - fake Mormon newsroom

    The article is seriously stupid for conflating assets with assets under management. And MWL proves to be just as dumb or dishonest.
