We have ways of making you talk on the phone

Allan Hall reported in The Daily Mail Abuse hotline set up by Catholic Church in Germany melts down on first day as 4,000 people phone in
The effect on the Catholic Church in Germany has been profound; people are leaving in droves, de-registering with the government department that levies an annual tax of 800 pounds each on worshippers to fund it.

A quarter of Catholics in Germany said in a recent survey they had lost faith in the Church leadership.
This hurts the budget but reduces workloads. Judging by my Archdiocese and parish, indications are that many bishops and priests can live with that tradeoff.
