potential new church strategy(2 posts) (2 voices)
This already happened to my family.
My great grandmother sold off several thousand acres of California ranchland over the course of a decade because her Catholic priest assured her that my great grandfather was suffering in purgatory and only prayers and donations could help him.
When all was said and done, she went from a fairly wealthy cattle rancher to a woman who died living in a tiny room on her daughter's house.
This strategy has been in play forever. Only the person being held hostage and the specifics of the threat change.
