Deduct Tithes Straight From Workers’ Salaries, Archbishop Tells Government

Ugandan priest called Cyprian Kizito Lwanga has called on the government to deduct tithes from workers salaries since most of them evade this ritualistic obligation.

During a mass, the Catholic Archbishop said many Christians don’t give tithe and this affects church projects, reports Citizen Kenya.

“Whenever we ask for tithe, everyone gives only what they have at that time. But the Bible says a tenth of whatever you earn belongs to the church,” said Archbishop Lwanga.

Archbishop Lwanga said he wanted Uganda to go the German route, where Germans, who are registered as Catholics, Protestants or Jews have a church tax (Kirchensteuer) of 8-9 per cent deducted from their annual income.

I was told Germans made agreements with their government to deduct monthly tithe from their salaries and forward it to the church and this money they use to build and renovate their churches,” he added.
