    I truly did not know this !
    Las Vegas churches accept gambling chips

    This may come as a surprise
    To those of you not living in
    Las vegas , but there are more catholic churches
    Than casinos.

    Not surprisingly, some
    Worshippers at Sunday services will give casino chips rather than cash when the basket is passed.

    Since they get chips from
    Many different casinos, the churches have devised a method to collect the offerings.

    The churches send all their
    Collected chips to a nearby franciscan monastery for sorting and then the chips
    Are taken to the casinos of origin and cashed in.

    This is done by the chip monks.

    Gosh! Thanks, ROLCAM!

    I didn't know that! :confused:

    I guess as long as it's for a good cause and everything!

    Kind of like using the old, beer drinking tunes and turning them into hymns, doncha think? :p
