where Germany has set a bad example for the rest of the world

The Archbishop of Kampala, borrowing a leaf from Germany’s church tax, wants the Ugandan government to deduct 10% tithe from salaried employees who are members of the church and forward it to the church.

This is such a busy Monday!

Happy week everyone.
