That means to leave, exit, resign. You know, like the ever-rising number of Germans leaving the two once big German Catholic and Lutheran state churches (church tax retained and distributed by the state)? No one can figure out why.
German Synodal Way backs same-sex blessings and transgender priests…
They also voted for the normalisation of lay preaching and also agreed to ask the Holy See to “re-examine” the discipline of priestly celibacy.
Old-time religion this is not. Just roll over and die and get it over with.
A survey says. Most Germans also find that they are miserable and without purpose or direction and in desperate search of some Ersatzreligion (substitute religion – see apocalyptic environmentalism and climate activism), my observation says. But maybe that’s just me.
Most Germans find religion unimportant, survey shows – A significant majority of Germans say religion plays no role in their life, a poll has shown. Fewer than one in eight adults believe that faith makes the world a fairer place, although younger people were more positive.
Man in Berlin attacks woman allegedly because she worked – A 29-year-old Afghan man in Germany has attacked and severely injured a 58-year-old landscape gardener who was working in a park in Berlin, allegedly because he didn’t like the fact that she was working.
Police said in a statement the suspect may suffer from a mental illness. However, prosecutors and criminal police are also investigating him on suspicion that his attack may have been motivated by Islamist ideology.
PS: German Willkommenskultur (welcoming culture) fun fact: This guy was deported two years ago, then came back and was allowed to stay.
Coronavirus: German police raid church service with over 100 maskless worshippers – Police said they arrived on the scene to find dozens of churchgoers flouting coronavirus lockdown rules that ban singing and require people to keep their distance.
“Germany’s imams seen as key in combating radicalization.” Right.
Although “Imam training is in the spotlight of this year’s German Islam Conference. In light of recent terror attacks, Germany’s interior minister said a new training program for German-speaking imams was “money well-spent,” those in the know have something else to report. This may be what German politicians want the German public to believe but don’t ask what Islam critic Hamed Abdel-Samad (Muslim himself) has to say about the “show.”
He has been trying for ten years to make progress addressing issues within this so-called German Islam Conference, particularly those regarding the radicalization of youth and the condition of women, but has repeatedly witnessed how precisely these issues are successfully removed from the agenda – and how its German supporters (and tax payers who finance it) do absolutely nothing about it. Now he has resigned in disgust.
Just in case you were wondering, Hamed Abdel-Samad needs bodyguards – here in Germany – and has needed them for years.
„Doch seit dieser Zeit konnten die Islamverbände alle kritischen Themen, die die kritischen Stimmen auf den Tisch gebracht haben, wie etwa das Thema Radikalisierung von jungen Muslimen oder die Stellung der Frau, aus der Tagesordnung verbannen.“
We’ve actually got two today: Islamistisch motiviert and Psychiatrie.
Islamistisch motiviert means Islamist motivated and Psychiatrie means psychiatry. You know, Islamist motivated like the attack with the car in Berlin yesterday? And psychiatry as in admitted to psychiatric care like the Islamist who carried it out?
A pattern is developing here. Islamists who regularly do this type of thing in Germany are admitted to psychiatric care while the people who let them in are allowed to continue holding office as if they were sane.
A German cathedral has dug out from a treasure chamber its collection of remains of St. Corona, the little-known Christian martyr who has been purported to be the patron saint of resisting epidemics.
But now nobody can admire Corona because of Corona.
The Aachen Cathedral had already been planning before the coronavirus outbreak to showcase the remains and an elaborate shrine to the saint as part of an exhibit of gold craftsmanship, according to Reuters.
But it has now accelerated its plans after the pandemic began sweeping across the globe — though it remains unclear when people will be able to visit the display amid strict restrictions on public gatherings.
Uh-oh. The Brain Police let this one get through. We’re going to get letters.
Muslim law clerks CAN be ordered to remove head scarfs in court because ‘complete neutrality’ outweighs religious freedom, German judges rule – Judges in Germany have told a Muslim law clerk that she can be prevented from wearing a head scarf during court proceedings.
Germany’s highest bench, the Federal Constitutional Court, ruled that the judiciary’s obligation to complete neutrality outweighed her freedom of religion rights…
Civil servants and police officers have already been banned from wearing the niqab, burka or hijab or any religious symbol, but this has not previously extended to members of the public.
German oddity 415. The pig is big here. Germans have more pig and sow idioms then wurst varieties – and that’s a whole lot. They also seem to think that any phrase or saying can be improved just by adding the words pig or sow to it, thus making said phrase or saying saugut (sow good or damned fine).
So what about this German oddity in the news today? After a German day care center in Leipzig decided not to offer pork on its meal plan anymore (gee, I wonder why?) threats started coming in. The police have now decided to guard the place.
And after BILD decided to report about the day care center’s decision the hashtag #Schweinefleisch (pork) reached the number one spot in Germany.
Polizeischutz für Kita ohne Schweinefleisch in Leipzig.
