Cardinal Lehman Doesn't Understand Why Catholic Days in Leipzig Are a Failure
Edit: these are satirical levels of cluelessness. Maybe Germans don't care about gender politics and the decadent and failing tax church?
Former President of the German Bishops' Conference states that there are mostly empty halls despite prominent politicians: "This will have to be carefully examined."
Leipzig (kath.net/KNA) Concerned about some half-empty halls despite the presence of prominent politicians has drawn comment from the Catholic Cardinal Karl Lehmann. "This will have to be carefully examined," said the former President of the German Bishops' Conference on Friday evening in Leipzig. With appearances by such as the Federal Minister Thomas de Maiziere (CDU) and Andrea Nahles (SPD) many places stayed empty.
Lehmann named as potential causes not only "the usual disenchantment", but also "a bit far hopelessness". Some people choose to withdraw from current issues. But he can see a danger in that their interest be declining permanently.
