Roman Catholic Speaker Fees and the Didache

A recent commenter on this blog (JAM) raised a good point with regard to the atronomical speaker fees that RC apologists charge for a one-hour prepared speech. He pointed out how this practice is so at odds with the Didache, an early 2nd-century document that purports to record the "teaching" of the twelve. I had forgotten about the Didache when I originally posted this topic, but was immediately reminded of it with JAM's reference. Here is the difference between the "speaker fee" mindset of the RC apologists (along with the silly defenses of their supporters) and the mindset of the ancient church:

The Didache V. RC Apologists

If the defenders of such practices want to argue with me, let them also argue with the ancient church.
