LAS VEGAS and THE CHURCH

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 WORSHIPERS 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.

We see that religion does have relevance in the society today.

Oh my gosh, how funny. I actually did know that there were more churches in Vegas than casinos. But I bet if they counted the gambling machines they would outnumber the churches.

Actually, there is the Guardian Angel Cathedral in LV that does accept chips in their collection and yes, the person who cashes in the chips is called the chip monk. The stained glass shows an angel shooting dice.
