Maybe it's time to start tithing in commodity money like gold, as the Vatican's budget for 2007 was creamed by the plummeting dollar. For 2007, the Vatican had a shortfall of $14.3 million. The high flying era of fiat inflation and irreverent Masses, is over. Usher in the era of frugality, humility, and reverent liturgy. Funny how the Church architecture from the inflationary age of the last 40 years has been iconoclastic and banal, while the Church architecture from the more frugal ages, was majestic and bold. Welcome to another age of humility, this time the Church will play a substantial role in the lives of Americans shattered by fraudulent currencies, unjust wars, and broken families.
Here are some gold coins to consider tithing with, from the Austrian mint, the 2000 Years of Christianity collection. Or go here to Burt Blummert's Camino Coin Company, he's a nice gent and the publisher of LewRockwell.com.
