April 16, 2021
CWN Editor's Note: “The Catholic and Protestant churches received combined state benefits of more than $650 million in 2020,” according to the report. “Most of the state payments date back to 1803, when German imperial princes received expropriated church property as compensation for a loss of territory. In return, the princes paid the churches money on a regular basis.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above). About CWN news coverage.
