    I recently heard that some religious sects are among the richest money making entities in the world. What are they.

      I have no proof of this but I would say the Catholic Church.

        I would have to agree, with the possible exceptions of the oil wealthy Muslims and the Jews (being that they are a nation as well).

        But I think SirDent is correct, because the Vatican is a warehouse of priceless artifacts. (the selling of half of which could probably feed the starving children of the world for many generations).

      Are you referring to the "churches" themselves? Or their followers?

      Catholicism!
      I've visited the vatican.
      My jaw dropped at the disgusting oppulence being displayed.
      It's beyond "riches!" it is arrogance to the nth degree!
      It represents alledged christianity at the zenith of the "worst!"

      I came here to say Hindus and Jews, but that has already been mentioned in this link. BTW my answer was based on my personal observation. smile

        The link refered to individuals earning power, not the collective value of religious entities.

        I'm sure it's the catholic church.

          That might be because the catholics are more in numbers.

        The link article is about income distribution in the United States. I think the same would not hold true on a global level.

    I guess it would be the one with the most gullible followers. smile

    Catholics would have to be right up there, taking sexual advice from a guy who has never had sex might be a clue! lol

      That is one aspect of Catholicism that never made much sense to either. But then again they seem to be the ones most prone to pedophilia.

      Uh Oh, I think I just opened myself up for a serious attack.
