German court backs Catholic ‘pay to pray’ rule
Germany court has ruled that Catholics who opt out of paying religious taxes must automatically leave the church as well.
The court’s verdict is a finical victory for the Catholic Church in Germany, which receives more than euro4 billion ($5.14 billion) annually from a surcharge of up to nine percent on income tax bills of registered Catholics.
The judges at the Federal Administrative Court in Leipzig ruled against retired German theologian Hartmut Zapp, who wanted to leave the church as an institution but remain a member of the Catholic community.
Germany’s bishops announced last week that believers who refuse to pay the tax are committing a “grave lapse” and as a result won’t be able to receive the sacrament, become godparents or have a religious funeral.
What a crock of crap this is! The Catholic Church is once again demonstrating that cash in the church bank account out weighs church members biblical beliefs and it’s concerns for all church members.
Why is common sense so uncommon?
Is this what Jesus would want?
If religion is all about money, then maybe we should start a church.
Does the catholic church run the German government or do all German politicians take bribes? There is an alternative, both are in league with the devil.
Neither GOD nor christians need organized religion.
Any catholic that supports this is both stupid and evil.
The facts no one wants to read.
