Certainly not I.

I am in Reno, Nv., USA. This means that I am in the unique position of having done electrical work for both religious institutions, as well as licensed brothels.

Every job associated with a religious group has been a nightmare of poor plans, constant changes, and slow pay. Every one has accepted the bill with a counter-offer: donate my work for a tax write-off.

By comparison, every job for a legal brothel has had me paid before I left the parking lot. They have even called me, asking when they would have a bill!

Add to this the arrogance large operations often have towards those they see as 'smaller,' and I wouldn't touch the Vatican with a barge pole.
