Okay, now this is getting bad.

Diocese of Fresno will not give its usual donation to Catholic Charities this year - because, it says, of the stock market.

The diocese usually gives $150,000 to Catholic Charities USA to buy food and help more than 75,000 people with medical, utility and rent bills from Bakersfield to Merced.Catholic Charities also helps support immigration, refugees, senior citizens, health and youth services programs, including Big Brothers and Big Sisters, and a halfway house in Bakersfield.Bishop John T. Steinbock said funds also have been cut for cathedral restoration, KNXT-TV, and capital improvements in poorer parishes.

So. They're not spending money on the poor or on poor parishes. So what are they spending money on?
