The Vatican Rents Out Sistine Chapel to Porsche for Private Event

For the first time in its 600-year history, the Vatican has rented out the Sistine Chapel for use as a private event venue. Luxury automaker Porsche paid โ‚ฌ5,000 a person (roughly $8,000) for the 40-person event held inside, a small charity concert starring a choir from the 500-year-old Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome. This is not the first time the Sistine Chapel has been used for such performance events, but this is the very first time performances have been held for a corporate donor as opposed to members of the Vatican themselves. In an interview with the Telegraph, the Vatican Museums Monsignor Paolo Nicolini explained the reason for such a pivitol decision in operations: "It is an initiative which will support the Pope's charity projects. It is aimed at big companies which, through the payment of a fee, can contribute to charity activities." What do you think about the Vatican's decision to rent out the Sistine Chapel for corporate events? Do you think the partnership between the Vatican and corporate donors would help or hurt Sistine Chapel fresco preservation efforts? Let me know. I'm curious to see what the Vinglers think!

the Vatican and Catholic church have done more for the world than ppl know or care to learn of. Ppl hate what they don't know
being Catholic first thought opposing the idea but I guess if it helps preserve the beauty of the chapel it may not be so bad. Still not sure
i think it's a fine example of the Vatican lining their pockets in a futile attempt to stockpile a hoard even more money, to try and buy a shot in the arm for their dying religion. its not about the rental of the Sistine chapel, who really gives a fuck. its the fact they need the money. since when did the Vatican do such things....Never. No amount of money will keep a false, shameful violent religious order from falling from the inside out.....big business fails....ask GM. IF ENOUGH PEOPLE NO LONGER BELIEVE U WILL CEASE TO EXIST.#false god #false god #sky fairy # open ur mind
This is crazy :/ I mean, I guess it's up to them to decide who to rent it out to (and this is kind of better than taxing peoiple more to come into vatican city i guess?) but it still just feels.....weird
Also, if the monsignor states it supports the Pope's charitable cause, then why don't they rent out directly to the charities themselves? Oh, that's right. Because those charities, unlike Porsche, can't shell out $8000 per head. It's a sad day when monetary gains for the church have to be so prominent.

โ€œI Lost Fear of Losing What I Never Wanted to Lose Foreverโ€ by Lumina H. Once upon a time, in my worst nightmare I screamed in the middle of the night โ€œDonโ€™t Leave Me!โ€ Fear of being abandoned Fear of being rejected Fear of being replaced Horror strikes like lightning Blitz, Blitz, Blitz Every thunder of anxiety electrocuted me Iโ€™ve been punched, kicked and screamed at I know all too well how it feels to be treated like dirt Iโ€™ve been to hell and back, both inside and outside my head. So what I feared most in this world Was you, of you turning your back on me Never to return, ever. Fear brought anxiety, pain, worry, stress, anger, fury, insomnia and finally tears Buckets, trucks, pools of tears Gradually my tears filled up a swimming pool And in my swimming pool of tears I drowned myself And I needed a CPR But no one cameโ€ฆ The water was still trapped in my lungs And I forgot how to breath, how to live I was dying I had seconds to live Could I live again? Could anyone give me new life? Could anyone revive me? Somebodyโ€ฆ Anybodyโ€ฆ Please help meโ€ฆ In my desperate need, I pleaded, prayed and hoped And then, right then Someone did come to my rescue But He wasnโ€™t you He was unexpected While you left me drowning He came with a thousand letters of love and care I didnโ€™t know Him He was a stranger to me But to him, I was no stranger He had been waiting for me all along He watched me dive into the ocean of tears He watched me as I sunk deeper into the sea of sorrow He always wanted to help me, to save me He never wanted me to drown myself, never He wanted me to live To live without Fear. To live without Fear of abandonment To live without Fear of rejection To live without Fear of replacement To live bravely, fearlessly, hopefully, gratefully To live honestly, courageously, earnestly, kindly To live with everything I had replaced with fear He breathed new air into my lungs Water came spluttering out of my throat My heart started beating again I could feel the blood rushing faster in my veins Iโ€™m alive! Iโ€™m alive! Iโ€™m alive! Iโ€™ve been Saved! Saved! Saved! My new savior will show me ways not to be afraid of losing you Iโ€™ve already lost you once And from now he will show me never to fear Losing you again and again Because in the far future Fast forward to many years later Here I am The future me said โ€œI lost fear of losing what I never wanted to lose foreverโ€ โ€œI lost fear of losing you, who I never wanted to lose, neverโ€ So today I wait, I hope, I run, I believe, I trust Towards that future of losing fear of losing you.

Love It Or Hate It: Do You Like Art Museums?
Welcome to the Funny Community game, Love It Or Hate It! This game is really similar to Monday's 'No Good or So Good' food game - except this one deals a lot more with non-food things. Every week, I highlight a different thing that a lot of people either really love or really hate and see how our community feels overall! Last week, I asked you how you felt about scary movies. Out of the 63 who voted, 47 of you voted that watching horror movies was TONS OF FUN! Soooo... SCARY MOVIES WIN!!!! This week, I want to know: Do you like going to art museums, or do you find them really boring? Art museums began in the 17th century, when private collectors would share the work to the public. Since then, they've slowly turned into a popular school field trip ultimate destination. Still a lot of us, well... we just don't get the hype. But how do YOU feel about art museums? Debate, debate, debate! @Inaritricx @Taijiotter @wonyeop316 @AimeeH @XergaB20 @JustinaNguyen @Danse @RainaC3 @bnrenchilada @destiny1419 @arnelli @Luci546 @InPlainSight @Ash2424701 @GingerMJones @zwdodds @LenaBlackRose @misssukyi @TerraToyaSi @kneelb4zod @BrookeStam @RachelParker @JaxomB @ultraninja10 @reyestiny93 @MattK95 @MajahnNelson @petname83 @BluBear07 @melifluosmelodi @ZoilaObregon @GossamoKewen95 @TracyLynnn @TiffanyWallace @VixenViVi @DenieceSuit @ButterflyBlu @CelinaGonzalez @MaighdlinS @maddiemoozer @VeronicaArtino @iixel @TomHawthorne @DominiqueThomas @ElizabethT @RiggaFoster @AluSparklez @kvnguyen @chris98vamg @WiviDemol @animechild51 @2Distracted @cthulu @jazziejazz @JessicaChaney @shantalcamara @J1mbleJ4mz @Beeplzzz @carmaa10 @MayraYanez @Kamiamon @HeatherWright @MischiefK1ng @SeoInHan @ShonA @KennyMcCormick @MooshieBay @IMNII @Ikpoper @humairaa @ merryjayne13 @zoemvillarreal @lilleonz @ChristinaOMalle @AllieGrabowski @baileykayleen @KarleyFrance @Ticasensei
