Just came back from a visit to the local church office on my parish, where I filled out a form to quit the Danish state church, folkekirken. Boy does it feel good to finally having that done! 😀
I’m fairly happy I got this done this week, because next week is my 20th birthday, so I’ll be entering a new decade in my life, with this fresh change, which is going to be nice. Now I never have to worry about accidentally paying the church tax (In the case I had forgotten about quitting the state church) when I get a job in the future, which would go towards funding what I have termed the Sunday Circus, when I am being polite, or the weekly circle jerk on Sundays, when I am not being polite.
Anyway, I hope we Danes get our act together and separate church and state in the future, if the Swedes can do it, bloody hell we can too!
Being a socialist, I am obviously not that big a fan of privatizations, however there is one privatization I’d love to see done, and that would be the privatization of the Danish state church, buildings, employees, every damn thing that has got to do with this joke that only 2,5% of the population actually use. And then we could stop spending 650 million DKK a year for funding this stuff!
If we look at history, it shows us that there’s tons of money in religion, I’m sure there’d be a buyer for the state church! 😈
If you are a member of the Danish state church, and just got offended, look in the upper-right corner of your screen, there’s a small button with a cross on it, just click that, come on go ahead! 😉
