Baptists reject financial compensation

22-02-2013

In related news, the Baptist Union in the Czech Republic rejected an agreement with the government on financial compensation, the group’s head, Milan Kern, said on Friday. The church was set to receive some 228 million crowns under the deal; however, Mr Kern said they would rather fund their church with contributions from members. The Baptists are the only church which took part in the property restitution negotiations that eventually refused to sign the agreement. The group has around 2,500 members.
