Catholic Nuns and Priests Attack Goldman Sachs on Transparency Issues

     Why do you notice the splinter in your brother's eye, but do not perceive the wooden beam in your own? How can you say to your brother, 'Brother, let me remove that splinter in your eye,' when you do not even notice the wooden beam in your own eye? You hypocrite! Remove the wooden beam from your eye first; then you will see clearly to remove the splinter in your brother's eye.  -Jesus of Nazareth, Luke 6:41-42
     Sure, the executives at Goldman Sachs are despicable and deserve to be held accountable for their crimes, but when the Catholic Church attacks Goldman Sachs on issues of transparency, accountability, and excessive wealth and the Church's priests and nuns are ignorant enough to agree to an interview with one of the Daily Show's moles, isn't it time to hang up the cassock and surplice?
