German Catholics lose church rights for unpaid tax

Germany’s Roman Catholics are to be denied the right to Holy Communion or religious burial if they stop paying a special church tax.

German Catholics lose church rights for unpaid tax.

A German bishops’ decree which has just come into force says anyone failing to pay the tax – an extra 8 per cent of their income tax bill – will no longer be considered a Catholic.

The bishops have been alarmed by the number of Catholics leaving the Church.

They say such a step should be seen as a serious act against the community.

All Germans who are officially registered as Catholics, Protestants or Jews pay a religious tax of 8-9 per cent on their annual income tax bill. The levy was introduced in the 19th Century in compensation for the nationalisation of religious property.

“If your tax bill is for 10,000 euros, then 800 euros will go on top of that and your total tax combined will be 10,800 euros,” Munich tax accountant Thomas Zitzelsberger told the BBC news website.

My comment:

The Roman Catholic Church is on the edge of bankruptcy in several nations.

The reason is the thousands of court cases launched against the “Church” because of sexual abuse of children by its priest.

Fresh money must be collected to keep this religious movement afloat.

 Matthew 15:14
Leave them; they are blind guides. If a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit.”

Do you want to pay the bill left by sexual perverted priests?

Jesus the Messiah speaks about both false teachers and false prophets.

You need to keep away for such persons, or became guilty of their crimes.

  1. I have no fear ‘The Catholic Churc’ will be unscathed by this ‘act of poor-mouthing’ ….If they said it was a Blue Sky outside I’d bring an umbrella!, If they said it was raining, I’d pack a picnic basket and enjoy the beautiful day!

  2. thin end of wedge….
    Imagine what it was like when the pappacy was dominant and unchallengable, they ALWAYS got their taxes, dues, fees, costs, expenses etc etc and folk were scared witless they would end up in eternal hellfire if they didnt pay up…..The pappacy has always preached the virtues of poverty-except for those among them who happen to be high up the hierarchy of course…..and has always been willing and determined to interfere in the political and economic life of any nation to acquire wealth and influence.
    When the vatican-organised ecumental interfaith movement comes full circle, and “bigotry” “intolerance” and “hate crime” is associated ONLY with anti-catholic expression, the pappists will once again attempt to bleed nations dry with their absurd and impudent demands for payments for services rendered (even if those services werent requested)

  3. This is like the dark ages. I don’t understand how people can’t see through this – particularly Catholics. If this is not Simony than I don’t know what is…that you must pay for the graces handed out by the catholic church. Disgusting.

    1. Amen….Sister…
      ….when I read that …I said out loud…Amen Suzie….
      …well I’m house and dog sitting (smile) the Dog’s name is Suzie….hahahha oh Glory Jesus is awesome…good to see you Sister Sue…
