German Bishops’ Decree re Catholics and the Church Tax

September 21, 2012

Skimming secular news reports on the recent decree by German bishops concerning Catholics paying, or not paying, the Church tax, I am sure only that the story is considerably more complex than reported. It won’t do to comment on such a story from afar armed only with secular journalists’ takes. So…

Can anyone send me, please: (1) the German bishops’ decree {I have this now, Thanks!} , (2) the actual wording on the tax form to be endorsed by a Catholic not wanting to pay the tax {I have this now, Thanks!}, and (3) the text of the Roman approval reported to have been given before the German decree came out? Auf Deutsch oder Englisch, bitte.

Many thanks!

Update Sep 27: Some first thoughts here.
