Reader feedback: Paying priests is not trustworthy

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

I was quite shocked to learn that priests receive a salary from the state in Slovakia. I would never have believed any European state would dream of doing such a thing. It really does raise doubts as to whether the Slovak cabinet can be trusted by the European Union to sensibly handle EU funds.
