Vatican Rents Out Sistine Chapel to Porsche For Corporate Event - First Time in 600-year History. Are you kidding me? I am all for the liberalization of the Church's attitudes and rules about marriage and other man-made restrictions on Catholics. I draw the line, however, at renting the Sistine Chapel to Porsche. Now that I think about it, however, the new Diocesan Cathedral here in town would make a great car dealership. The dealership couldn't be open on Sunday; but, the rest of the week I never see anybody in there anyway. We could move all the cars to the parking lot, and have a drive in Mass. I can see the signs now: "A car deal made in heaven!" Or, "These cars are what God would drive!" While we are at it, let's get the priests and nuns out selling cars. They don't make very much money, and they could add to the retirement fund. Jeez.
