In Christmas Message, German Churches Attack 'Greed Culture' | Germany | Deutsche Welle | 24.12.2008

In their Christmas message, Germany's Protestant and Catholic churches warned that "money has become God"and called for a return to non-materialistic values and urged bank managers to be more prudent.

Wolfgang Huber, Germany's top Protestant Bishop, on Wednesday sharply criticized the strong profit-driven focus and "culture of greed " of individual bank managers and executives.

Huber, who represents around 25 million Protestants in Germany, said banks needed to give more priority to "sustainable value-building" rather than to short-term financial gain and hefty bonuses for its managers.

"Money has become akin to God in the current situation," Huber told daily Berliner Zeitung.
