    The quote in the article was incomplete:
    It is from Matthew 19:24.


    A commentary from Matthew 19:24 Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God."

    The god business is a very lucrative one indeed. The billions in Vatican, Mecca and in our own temples is testimony to that.

    I was looking for a quote by Mark Twain on the wealth of the church, and I found this. :)

    Anyway, I did not find the quote I was looking for, so to paraphrase, he said the RC church should sell off it wealth and feed to poor.
