Reader feedback: The state should not pay priests

Re: More money for clerics, Flash news briefs, May 31 - June 6, Vol 10, No 21

The work that priests do in the community is priceless. Nevertheless, I wholeheartedly believe there should be a complete separation of church and state and that the church should not be a burden to the Slovak population.

Theses churches should be supported by their hierarchy in Rome and the populace whom they serve. Maybe this way Slovakia would be able to comply with the EU mandate to provide all of its citizens with a health insurance card by 2005.
