The German Bishops Profit from Porn: Weltbild

Edit: This has been an issue for thirty years. Kath.net has just reported that Cologne has severed their relationship with Weltbild, an enormous publishing company which falls in just under Amazon in terms of revenue. Recently, there has been a tremendous reaction against this which is becoming increasingly intense.

The following article is from an anti-Catholic publication, 'Business Insider'. The only people reporting on this so far in English, are anti-Catholics. The conservative Catholic German media has been reporting on it non-step for the last two or three weeks.


One of Germany's largest publishing companies, Weltbild, has over 2,500 erotic novels in its online catalogue. Its owned 100 percent by the German Catholic Church.

Worldcrunch, summarizing an article by German newspaper Die Welt, says that for over 10 years Catholics have complained about the company, which has been owned by the church for over 30 years. The high point of this opposition came in 2008, when a 70-page report on the book sales was sent to bishops.

Die Welt reports that the situation came to light after a report this month mentioned the erotica distributed by Weltbild. The publication also said that over half of the bishops who were sent the report in 2008 failed to acknowledge receipt of the document.
