If your communist in Italy, your ex-communicated
Taxpayers pay .08 of their income tax to the church
other religions can get some of it but the Catholic church gets 87 percent
of the 1 billion each year in EURO's
This pays for salaries, buildings etc. ,
750 million is spent on religious education in schools, hospitals etc.
The catholic church costs ITALIAN taxpayers Euro 4 billion annually.
The politicians bend over backward to help the church.
The church exercises influence over politics, education, the media and everday lives of the people.
The church is very very rich, free money, and the poor ITALIANS get poorer supporting the church.
And they say they don't have enough money to pay for the scandals, I guess the pope and his boys in ITALY, close the vaults to outsiders..., just scream for more giving from other countries. Let the vaults be overflowing.
