The fanatically pro-Third World invasion Christian churches in Germany—both Catholic and Protestant—have experienced a nearly half-million drop in officially registered members in 2018, the largest in recorded history.
The new figures, released by the German Bishops’ Conference and the Evangelical Church in Germany (EKD), revealed that the Catholic and Protestant churches both lost over 200,000 members last year.
The losses are more than numerical: members of both churches pay up to 9 percent of their taxable income as church taxes, and deregistering as a member of the church means that this income has now been lost to the Christians.
According to the figures, Germany’s Catholic Church lost 216,078 members and Protestant churches lost some 220,000 members in 2018.
In total, around 23 million German citizens are still members of the Catholic Church and 21.14 million are members of the Protestant churches. The two groups account for 53.2 percent of the country’s total population of over 83 million.
Hans Langendörfer, secretary of the German Bishops’ Conference, described Friday’s figures as a “worrying” statistic.
“Every departure hurts,” said Heinrich Bedford-Strohm, president of the EKD.
Church membership can officially be renounced by making a declaration in person at a local government agency, sometimes a district court. There is no need to provide any reason for wanting to leave.
Unless they renounce their membership with an official declaration, members of the Catholic and Protestant churches pay up to 9 percent of their taxable income as church tax, generating billions of euros in income for both organizations. The money is automatically deducted, just like payroll taxes or social insurance.
The Christian churches have been at the forefront of promoting the Third World invasion of Germany, especially by Muslims, and have also been active in politics, demanding that Germans accept millions of nonwhites and Muslims—even though all the data shows that the introduction of millions of Third Worlders will lead to the destruction of Germany, and of the Christian churches as well.
