Pope, who lives in a gilded palace: the devil will destroy the church with money. September 12, 2016

Vatican radio reports:

The message here seems to be, “Wealth will destroy the Church, give us 10% of yours.” It’s kinda like saying, “Crystal meth destroys families! Do you have any extra?”

If money’s so corrupting, you have plenty to give away.
