Shouldn't you be asking yourself whether the decree is according to Scripture?

SK:For your church's sake, I hope they do too. But you gota admit that takes a lot of gall.
Following the Word of God takes a lot of courage. Especially with Protestants always singing a dirge:
Matthew 11:16-20

King James Version (KJV)

16 But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows,
17 And saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned unto you, and ye have not lamented.
18 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a devil.
19 The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.
20 Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his mighty works were done, because they repented not: 

I never knew this about churches in Germany. Protestant churches are mentioned also, but it seems the catholic church is really crying out.

Here's a snippet, read the rest yourselves.

BERLIN (AP) — A Catholic reform group in Germany criticized the country's bishops Monday for declaring that believers who refuse to pay religious taxes won't be able to receive the sacrament, become godparents or work in church institutions.

Well from what I read, the protestants are not complaining. Its only the catholic bishop. Thats what the news says. I don't see you taking this stance when its something protestant in the news. By the standards of catholics, that news wpuld be true and correct and might as well be gospel truth.
Shouldn't you be asking yourself whether the decree is according to Scripture? What the complainers whine about is besides the point. The fact is that the Bishops are acting according to Christ's word:
Matthew 22:16-22

King James Version (KJV)

16 And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou regardest not the person of men.
17 Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?
18 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites?
19 Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny.
20 And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription?
21 They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's.
22 When they had heard these words, they marvelled, and left him, and went their way.

Therefore why are you pretending that the Catholic Church is doing something wrong?
