The Church needs to make income by charging people prices for the Holy sacraments just like buying some food at Walmart?
The church in the new country has adopted the laws of the land.
It isn't charging technically. Its an obligation that always existed, taking on a new form.
The apostles stated that 10% of your income is supposed to go to the church. A Tithe is actually earned income before its earnied. Thats before you even earn it.
I doubt that any of the price lists are a fraction of that.
Take it to the high court cheapo!

Where did the apostles say that 10% goes to church?
