What do you think about what Sarah Silverman said about selling the Vatican to save the world?

here's a link from the huffington post where the video can be found.
If you can't watch the video for what ever reason. She basicly says they should sell the Vatican and use the money to feed the world. But of course she says it in her funny Sarah Silverman way. What do you think about it?

  • Naive. Plenty of money is spent to feed the world by many people and organizations. Wars and bad rulers keep people in inhumane situations. The Catholic church has missions in many parts of the world that are funded by the collateral that is raised because of the Vatican.

  • The Vatican owns artwork that is worth billions of dollars. That money could be used to build a lot of schools.

  • Let me remind everyone the Catholic missions with the relief aid service money were the first on the ground in Haiti. The Catholic church helps in more ways you can imagine. I suggest she auction off her belongings and feed those in her back yard before settling world debt with personal property.

    So once this property is sold will the money come from sponsors? After you pay off the Vatican (because it is THEIR property) will how much money will be left? Are the you going to feed the 900 people who live in Vatican City? What about the 3000 ppl who work there?

    silly lame plan, the Catholic Church helps all over the world. Lay off the Catholic church for a day and pick on the next guy

    ...and it has had the same paint job for centuries.

  • Why don't we sell the White House and the Mormon Temple and the Hagia Sophie and Meca and other sites of worship while we are at it.
    I think it's a stupid comment.
