I just read this article on MNBC about the horded treasures recently discovered in India:
Considering this news, and the hording of wealth by the Catholics and the Protestants, it is clear to me that the religious leaders believe that this mortal existence is far more important than they lead their followers to believe. They certainly don't practice what they preach when it comes to practicing humility, giving to the poor, and living a life free of material attachments. They are all a bunch of hypocrites and liars.
