The different types of worship services in Belgium should receive the same status. That's according to four professors, who will forward this advice to the Parliamentary Commission looking into the matter.
Under the professors' proposal, priests and imams would enjoy equal pay and would have to retire at the age of 65. They also counted how many people are attending the different kinds of services. This should be done every 10 years, the professors suggest. The figures could lead to a redistribution of the federal subsidies for the different kinds of religion.
