Bishops have been grabbing for government money with both hands while sitting atop billions of dollars.

In July, the federal government instituted the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), designed to give cash to small businesses to keep them from closing. As expected, bishops stepped out of their mansions and into the breadlines, scoring more than $3 billion in taxpayer cash.
They claimed Catholic schools needed the money to keep going while keeping their stock portfolios and endowments fat with cash, even though Church employees were laid off.
