Obesity In The United States And Religion And Taxes

2/3 of adults and 1/3 of children in the U.S. are obese. At the Heart Attack grill, if you weigh over 350 pounds, you can eat for free. If you eat their biggest burger, you get a free wheelchair ride out to your car.

180,000 Germans left the Catholic Church last year, where people have to tell tax authorities when they leave their church.

Germany charges a Church (income) Tax or (Kirchensteuer) of 8 percent – 9 percent. If a German citizen wants to stop paying the tax, they can formally resign from their faith’s church. At which point they become a Konfessionslose, which is someone who does not belong to a specific affiliation.

Switzerland imposes a church tax on the income of members of: The Evangelic Reformed Church, the Roman Catholic Church, the Christ Catholic Church and the Israelite communities. The tax is levied in accordance with municipal tax law.
