7 JP Morgan

Iconic American businessman JP Morgan was a "W.A.S.P.," meaning he belonged to a White Anglo Saxon Protestant family. Before the 1960s, America was controlled by W.A.S.P. families, and they were very proud of their Protestant culture and heritage. Until the 1960s, the W.A.S.P. strongly believed in traditional Christian values, which is why abortion was only legalized in the USA in the 1970s, and gay marriage was also considered indecent.

It was only after the 1960s that the W.A.S.P. (Presbyterian and Episcopalian) became liberal, which, according to some, ruined everything.

Anyway, JP Morgan, like many other W.A.S.P. before the 60s, was a very devout Episcopalian Christian. He strongly believed in Lord Jesus Christ and donated a huge amount of money to Episcopalian charities. He also played an important role in founding the famous Church Club of New York, which he financed until his death.

In fact, three members of the family went on to become "Pope" of the Catholic Church. Other members were all devout Catholics and had close ties with the Church. They used their wealth to finance the construction of many cathedrals and also financed many painters who went on to create famous Catholic artwork.

Cosimo de Medici, like many members of his family, was a lifelong and devout Roman Catholic who had close relationships with Catholic charities.
