Cristina from Romania

Romania is one of the most religious out of European countries. At the end of 2017 in Romania there were 576 hospitals, 7.047 schools, and *drum roll* 27.384 churches. They don’t pay taxes, and their latest construction “People’s Salvation Cathedral” is estimated at about 400 million euros; meanwhile about half of the country is living below the poverty line. People are treated in many cases badly by the priests if they don’t pay their illegal fees. I feel especially bad for the LGBT community in Romania, since the church promotes homophobia and for all the people that don’t fit the Bible’s standards. It’s just plain sad.
