Catholic Church’s German Porn-Selling Media Company Rakes In The Euros

Share

Weltbild is Germany’s largest media company, with an online business second only to Amazon. It sells books, DVDs, music and a lot more….it also sells a lot of pornography. Oh yes, and did we mention that it was owned by the Catholic Church….not the Catholic Church owns a bit of it. Not the Catholic Church has stock in the company. The company is owned- lock stock and barrel- by the Catholic Church.

Of course, the Church does not really want to believe that. They stated through a spokesman that “Weltbild tries to prevent the distribution of possibly pornographic content.” They seem to be putting about as much effort into preventing the flow of pornographic materials through their business as they do in preventing child molestation- which is not a lot.

For over ten years, a group of Catholics have been trying to get the Church authorities to pay attention to the fact that there is this hypocrisy going on, and they even sent a 70-page document to all the bishops whose diocese have shared ownership of the company over the last thirty years. They detailed evidence of the sale of this pornography.

According to Worldcrunch:

Today, the Augsburg-based company employs 6,400 people, has an annual turnover of 1.7 billion euros, and an online business in Germany second only to Amazon. Weltbild is also Germany’s leading book seller, controlling 20% of the domestic bookstore market. Profits are regularly reinvested in the company with an eye to rapidly increase the market share – an increase that is only possible if Weltbild continues to sell materials that are not compatible with the teachings of the Church.
Weltbild has some 2,500 erotic books in their online catalogue. Some of those come from Blue Panther Books, which is an erotic book publisher actually owned by Weltbild. Among the titles offered by BPB are “Anwaltshure” (Lawyer’s Whore), “Vögelbar” (F—kable) and “Schlampen-Internat” (Sluts’ Boarding School).

The Church also owns a fifty percent stake in the publishing company Droemer Knaur. They produce pornographic books with titles such as “Nimm mich hier und nimm mich jetzt!” (Take Me Here, Take Me Now!), and “Sag Luder zu mir!” (Call Me Slut!).

It sounds as if the Roman Catholic Church has had little incentive to actually stop the flow of pornography out of their publishing company. Let us face it, if you walk past the Inspirational section at your local Walmart, you tend to notice that the books are not exactly flying off the shelf. Several Bible and Christian oriented book stories have had to go more mainstream over the years because of their inability to sell much in the way of books.

Well, it would not be surprising, in all honesty, that the Catholic Church is doing this. After all, it was once said that the Catholic Church owned many a whore house. At one time, ‘nunnery’ was slang for a whore house, so, it seems reasonable that they would just go into pornography these days.
