Franz-Peter Tebartz-van Elst, 53, the bishop of Limburg, Germany (no website translation), reportedly spend $42 on the remodeling of his residence.
Among the expenditures:
- $474,000 for carpentry and cupboards
- $610,000 for art
- $135,000 for windows for a private chapel
- $34,000 for a conference table
- $20,000 for a bathtub.
A $34,000 conference table? Here's an example. For a $1,000 more.
A $20,000 bathtub? It's the ultimate soak. I'm sure that's what the bishop's parishioners are saying, too.
