Poker chips in church?
Las Vegas churches now accept gambling chips? Believe it! Actually there are more Catholic churches in Las Vegas than there are casinos. Not surprisingly, some worshipers at Sunday Services will put casino gambling chips in the donation basket rather than cash. Since these chips come from various casinos in Vegas, the priests have devised a method to collect and sort the chips. The various parishes all send their collected chips to a nearby Franciscan monastery for sorting, and then the chips are taken to the casinos of origin and exchanged for cash. This sorting is, of course, done by the “chip monks”!
