A bit of an ironic statement coming from a conqueror, but it checks out.

Plundering everything is kind of in the job description for a conqueror. Priests, on the other hand, are generally supposed to be humble and virtuous, which the priests Bonaparte was speaking of obviously weren't.

Indeed.

And at the other end of the spectrum, as Martin Luther King Jr. pointed out on multiple occasions; you have clergy people who, when given the opportunity to make a positive difference in society, say that isn't the rightful place of the Church.

According to my AP European History teacher(without whom my senior year of High School would be unbeatable), Napoleon was actually around five-and-a-half feet. Everyone thought he was short because he surrounded himself with six-foot-plus bodyguards.

Well, five foot five, in europe, is still remarkably tiny. Even for the first century, militarily speaking, five foot five would barely be the accepted minimum height for a Roman soldier ( the standard mandate being five foot seven) for the sake of traveling and fighting on horse back. For this and many reasons, the celts (or Keltoi) were Rome's favorite mercenaries and foreign recruits, their warrior class being closer to six feet than not.

True. Many are like that. On the other hand, there are people like St. Francis of Assisi. Now there was a man who took his faith to heart, and did good things. Were they because of his faith? I guess we'll never know for sure. At any rate, just to say not everyone's a hypocrite (just most).

Know what's hilarious hypocracy? To idolize a man who deliberately lived in modest poverty, having given up the wealthy life of a merchant's son by market by selling crap like this:

Yes, but I don't think either of us is surprised. The catholic church has been oozing corruption for centuries, that's why protestant movements got off the ground.

Big words, Nap. So tell me again, why didn't you axe those priests when you were emperor of all and everything, huh?

He also said "Religion is what keeps the poor from murdering the rich." He found it useful, he just didn't really believe it.

I know! ^^ I was just pointing out that, well, that makes him as much a hypocrite as the priests.

Yep - The pope lives in grotesque levels of luxury, while telling everyone to reject materialism...

Pontiff, practice what you preach...
