"The Catholic Church owns a number of luxurious London properties as part of a property empire originally funded by fascist dictator Mussolini, it has been claimed.
The Vatican has used an offshore company structure to build up its portfolio of expensive properties now worth around £560 million.
Investment in international property was initiated by the church when Mussolini afforded it a huge windfall in 1929 in return for papal recognition of his fascist regime."
(multiple media sources).
Note: Benito Mussolini was the fascist dictator of Italy during World War II. He was an ally of the German Nazis.
The Church is quite secretive about it's investments and only releases limited information about how it goes about doing business. But one concern is the investment in 'chemicals'.
What chemicals, exactly? How much has the Church invested in destructive industries? I'm sure we would all like to know.
