Message Subject Catholic Church says, "Path To Heaven means pay them TAXES"
Poster Handle KK
Post Content
Everything cost money including running a church, and the Catholic church has been losing money and followers since the sex scandals. The reason for this tax is that it funds German kindergarten, housing and food for the poor, the homeless and the elderly. When people stop giving and just sit in church week after week, it negates the very premise of the church which is to help your fellow man in need. So maybe their stance is if you don't want to give to help others ...stop taking from us. I agree it is a bit extreme...but maybe their last option.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25158158


"A total of 126,488 Catholics asked to stop paying the membership tax and be removed from registers in the 27 German dioceses during 2011, according to the bishops' conference. In 2010, some 180,000 Catholics took the same step."
