The Muslim communities in Germany are from abroad, financially dependent. This needs to be changed, require not only German politicians and bring the idea of a mosque-tax as the Islam variant of the German Church tax into the game.
The idea is to not have to leave If the tax deduction for each Muslim and each Muslim only income tax, but this amount is 8 to 9 percent of mosques-tax plan fails, the Muslim communities of Erdogan and the Saudi patrons of financing. In the case of a Single with 4000 euros gross about 600 euros since the year of Faith.
that’s the theory, but in practice, this will not work. The Church tax is a special feature, which is based on the German state Church system, and in addition, a financial compensation for the confiscation of the extensive Church good at the beginning of the 19th century. Century. Today the “Church tax” in the crisis, because more and more German Christians from their Church. To extend this development in the future, it is clear that the times in which this tax has always been for-filled Church coffers, are already over.
Many do not emerge alone from the thrift out of the Church. They have become the System of the Catholic or Protestant Church’s big on the inside foreign. Real atheists are few, but many are diffusely religious influences of the Christian Tradition. In the sense of the Church’s beliefs, they are neither Lutherans nor Catholics. The Central question of transubstantiation – what is done with the consecrated host and wine is the most today simply don’t care.
The idea of the National Church is alien to Islam
In the case of the Muslims in Germany, the Situation is even more complicated. This is because, unlike the Christian System of Islam is not familiar with the idea of a kind of state or national Church. This idea has a profound effect on the religious life, because it is always accompanied by a Form of hierarchy. This is the Muslim Belief is deeply foreign. As she was by the way also the Christian Faith in foreign, before the country’s rulers have forced the Church with violence under their Power.
Ironically, the idea of a tax is now to convince the Muslims in Germany of the merits of such a Super organization. It is Muslim associations in Germany exist, you have nothing to do with the structure of the churches – and are also considered by many Muslims skeptical. For a faithful Muslim, there are numerous religious obligations, but not quite sure it belongs to you, in any of the Islam Association. Accordingly, only a very small part of the Muslims in associations is previously organized. The Central Council of Muslims in Germany brings together 21 organisations, representing but only 10,000 to 20,000 Muslims.
commitment remains tax-free
in fact, however, could only justify belonging to such an Association, the obligation to the mosque tax. The pure commitment to the Islamic Faith will remain tax-free, as everyone can a Christian call to settle without Church tax. A compulsory membership, qua origin and birth are legally unthinkable. The willingness is expected to be low, to send, each month, between 25 and 70 euros, to a Central Association to Berlin, so the transfer might take a bit of the local Iman and the mosque.
The direction of decide the faithful, non-Christian politicians
The applause of politicians, who themselves are not Muslims, suggests the next Problem. The policy of radical preachers and Imane, who were trained in Turkey, a thorn in the eye. But who says that the believers are the same set? Unspoken is the idea that believers are to engage in the bag, so that it would be a dream-Islam, the policy can be financed. But in the end, the faithful will decide which Islam they want. It should go democratic, it may happen that the mosque-the tax comes at the end of the directions, which Berlin wants to fight. Looking at the results of the election of Erdogan in Germany, is it even likely that the Turkish preacher be paid for by the German tax.
The mosque-tax sounds so seductive, you will not solve the core problem.
