Sistine Chapel parking

Pope Francis has revealed that the Vatican will rent out the Sistine Chapel for a corporate event for the first time in its 600-year history.

Porsche will hire the revered chapel, which is covered in Michelangelo’s stunning frescoes, and put on a private concert for 40 lucky – and high paying – guests. The concert, which takes place on Saturday, will be one stop on an exclusive tour of Rome organised by the car brand.

The Vatican has not divulged how much it will earn from the event, but the five-day tour of Italy’s capital, arranged by the Porsche Travel Club, costs up to €5,000 a head, meaning an overall intake of €200,000, reported…

The concert will be performed by a choir from the Accademia di Santa Cecilia in Rome, which traces its origins back to the 16th century. Participants will then sit down to a meal in the midst of the Vatican Museum, “surrounded by masterpieces by world-famous artists such as Michelangelo and Raphael”…

Proceeds from the event will go to charities working with the poor and homeless…

The Sistine Chapel’s…primary function is to be the site of the Papal conclave, the process by which a new Pope is selected.

Why not carry the logic a step or two further? Just imagine the annual revenue from the Facebook Chapel?

Thanks, Ursarodinia

    the pope-mobile is now known as the porsche-mobile
    porsche always had a holier-than-thou attitude.
    now the pope can drive like a bat outta hell!
    ….etc. …etc….

    Ever since Hobby Lobby, liberals have been complaining that religious people need to be treated just like any other business. Looks like this pope got the message. He will sell everything that is uniquely Catholic in search of plaudits from non-Catholic liberals.

    Nothing moves the Church like money. Surprised, no!

    Matthew 21:12
    Jesus entered the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves.

    I guess Matthew forgot to specify also “concerts organized by car makers”.

    Liberals should be happy, as they will now use that as an excuse to force the church to perform “gay marriages”

    Post after post from the same lunatic gets a bit old after about the third post. I might have suggested trying ONE thread if you have something intelligent to say in REPLY TO THE STORY, but I’m sure you have no idea what I’m even talking about.

    Take a look. TEN so far. Count them! TEN long winded SEPARATE posts of your neuron nonsense which I (and others) might even agree with. But we’ll never know since I (we) have better things to do than read your long winded craziness. So do a good thing for once in your miserable life and just SHUT THE FUCK UP! Go find something else to do because you’re not convincing anyone that you’re even SANE when you blabber on and on and on like you do.

    … And yes, we know it’s really you BOBBO!
