How easy would it be for Berlin to forcibly tax all Germans and turn over their money to Rome, when it is already involved in tithe collection for state-recognized religions?

The German Catholic Bishops Conference issued a decree in September warning that those Germans who opted out of paying the country’s “church tax” would no longer be entitled to sacraments, religious burial or any part of parish life.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-19699581

This “church tax” is a special tax collected in Germany and several other Western European nations that was introduced in the 19th century in compensation for the nationalization of religious property. All Germans who officially register as Catholics, Protestants or Jews on their tax documentation must pay a religious tax of 8 to 9 percent on their annual income tax bill.

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

The German government then passes this “church tax” on to the respective religious organizations. If any person does not want to pay the tax, he or she must officially register as being “non-religious.”

In 2011, the Catholic Church received €5 billion (us$6.4 billion) from German taxpayers, making up the bulk of the church’s German income.

Recently, there have been a large number of Germans who have been officially registering as “non-religious,” while still attending Catholic mass and/or other Catholic functions. This is what prompted the decree from the German Catholic Bishops Conference.

“This decree makes clear that one cannot partly leave the church,” the German Bishops Conference said last month, in a statement endorsed by the Vatican.

So, from here on out, German Catholics either have to be full-fledged tax-paying members or they have to leave the church entirely, giving up all rights to the Catholic sacraments.

This decision is significant in that it shows that the Catholic Church is asserting itself in Germany in a way it has not asserted itself in many years. What may be even more significant, however, is the spotlight that this decision casts on the fact that the German state actually collects “tithes” for the major religious institutions that operate within the Fatherland.

In Britain and America, the religious tithe a person pays is a personal matter between that person and his or her church. In Germany, Italy and several other Western European nations, however, people have to officially register as Catholic, Protestant, Jew or “non-religious.” The state then collects the tithe of all “religious” people and passes it on to the church.

Long-time readers of the Trumpet will know that the Bible is full of passages foretelling of a time when Germany (Assyria) and the Vatican (Mystery Babylon the Great) will join forces to form one last revival of the Holy Roman Empire. How easy would it be for Berlin to forcibly tax all Germans and turn over their money to Rome, when it is already involved in tithe collection for state-recognized religions?

yes i like when people make unsubstantiated generalizations..that really show lack of depth and understanding of the real corruption that obviously lies unchecked....it sickens me that church has weaseld its way into forcing people to disclose their religious beliefs and open their pocket books or you cant come to church...how telling of the godlyness of the vatican...which no doubt is opening the eyes of a few good catholics that have to question how easily they become uninvited..

just goes to show the power the churches have over their governments and how much the governments fear repercussions from religious believers. Catholic church gongregations have been in decline for a while, it stands to reason that income may also be in decline, so what they are doing is the next logical step, make people pay through taxation... logical from their point of view, not mine.

Soon you will be paying for the air you breath, believe me... carbon tax etc..

One can only guess that at some point we will not be getting paid for the work we do, the government will simply provide for us and we will simply need to fulfill our labour obligations or will receive nothing, no food, no power, no anything...


What comes next? when you take everyting away from everyone, what happens next?

good points...but i dont think the solution has to be dreadful...the bottom line i think is that very soon globally we will find out how phoney the money system is, how corrupted its become and how the globe is illegally been duped and indebted to a mafia cartel...instead of the world collapsing perhaps sensibility will ensue the honorable(as i am sure there are a few) and a spade will be called a spade...the lie unleashed and the globe will be set free of its hudreds of trillions of dollars of unpayable debt...at that point we can start being optimistic and forward thinking...right now with the global debt as it is...the bulk of the tax dollar go to servicing careless debt ratios that the banksters sanctioned...goldman sachs wrote the lending rules for greece and spain...and allowed them to go 40 to 1....hmmm who was the responsible business man here? i say the sachters....

Does the Trumpet have a preoccupation with Germany? Seems so many of these stories regard Germany in one way or another.
