I see catholicism and its different branches nothing more then a "mafia" for a lack of a better word. How can you make people pay the 10% of their income and if you wouldnt comply or if you spoke against them you would be labeled a heretic and either tortured or burned or even worse? They have been using strongarm tacktics to hold on to their position for a very long time, burning our best minds at the stake but I dont think it will last much longer.

The RCC doesn't make people pay a tithe. Other christian churches do.

No but they get you coming and going. A delivery driver that comes to our institution told us what he had to go through to get a Catholic wedding and it included weekly donations, on top of the $'s for the service. It was a LOT of money, no matter what tax bracket you're in.

Just saying.

Yeap, I was marry in the Catholic church and donations are expected this was back in the 80s and my husband and I had to go through an 8 week seminar just to get a certificate before the wedding or not wedding in the church.

And the seminar was not free.
