Ecclesiastic empire/ Imperij crkve

2

Yesterday, was a great documentary about the church (roman-catholic) and its way of handling money. It was almost that I couldn´t believe it is true. Imagine having a business with over 3000 branches only in Germany? Imagine now that this business doesn´t have any documents, is not paying taxes but is also received over 500.000.000 Euros (church tax not included) per year from the German state. Further, the church is keeping kindergartens, schools and hospitals with absolutely no control if people working there have the right competence except that they are church members. Since, it is easier just to pay then take a proper action to start new schools and hospitals the state is paying for all this. This means that the state practically pays for an institution to discriminate people not being church members, which is illegal according to the law. Further, in Germany  as well as in the rest of the world no one, except the Vatikan,  knows exactly how much real property the church owns. A bishop (maybe even cardinal, I do not recall)  calculated that the minimal value of the property of roman catholic church lies around 200 billions (200.000.000.000) Euro…only in Germany. This bishop is fighting for the church members´ right to know how much money and real estates the church has and where exactly the money payed by the church members goes. In Rome, for example, experts calculate that at least every 3rd building is owned by the church.  In Germany, Munich was mentioned, it´s the same. In Munich, it was only clear that an apartment of some cardinal was renovated for some  8.000.000 Euro. Now, as an atheist, I wonder how the  church members can be persuaded or inspired (however you see it) to  pay taxes for the church while the church literally swims in money?

Church-and-State-Signs

 

Jucer,  sam gledala dobar dokumentarac o crkvi (Rimsko-katoličkoj) i njen način rukovanja novcem. Skoro pa nisam mogla vjerovati šta sve rekoše. Zamislite, da imate firmu sa više od 3000 grana samo u Njemačkoj? Zamislite sada da ovakva firma nema apsolutno nikakve dokumente, ne plaća poreze, i čak i primi preko 500.000.000 eura (crkveni porez isključen) godišnje samo od Njemačke države. Nadalje, crkva drži vrtiće, škole i bolnice a nema apsolutno nikakvu kontrolu ako su ljudi koji tamo rade kompetentni za taj posao koji rade, osim da su članovi crkve. Budući da je lakše samo platiti nego preuzeti odgovornost za otvaranje novih škola i bolnica, država plaća za sve ove ustanove. To znači praktično da država plaća za institucije gdje se ljudi, koji nisu članovi crkve, diskriminiraju što je blago rečeno protivzakonito. Nadalje, u Njemačkoj kao i u ostatku svijeta niko, osim Vatikana, ne zna tačno koliko crkva posjeduje nekretnina (niti novca). Jedan biskup (možda čak i kardinal,ne sjećam se) je izračunao da je minimalna vrijednost imovine Rimsko-katoličke crkve oko 200 milijardi (200.000.000.000) Eura …Samo u Njemačkoj. Taj biskup se isto tako bori da članovi crkve dobiju pravo da tačno saznaju koliko nekretnina crkva posjeduje i gdje tačno članarine idu. U Rimu, na primjer, su stručnjaci izračunali da je najvjerovatnije svaka 3. zgrada u vlasništvu crkve. U Njemačkoj, Minhen je spomenut, isto tako. U Minhenu je bilo jasno da je samo jedan stan (od nekog kardinal) obnovljen za nekih 8.000.000 Eura. Sada se, kao ateista, pitam kako crkva svoje članove može ubijediti ili inspirisati (kako god to vidite) da uplati toliki novac, a bukvalno pliva u novcu?
