Croatia - For God and Country
Kroatien - Für Gott und Vaterland
The power and influence of the Catholic Church in Croatia is greater than that of almost any other religious community in Europe. It draws large amounts of its funds from the national budget and has significant economic and political influence. The church is one of the five richest institutions in the country and promotes the Bible as the foundation for a good life. The clergy enjoys special immunity from criminal prosecution and the Croatian state is required to finance priests' salaries from the national budget. Much to the chagrin of liberals in Croatia.
