Like the evil Cardinal Reinhard Marx of Munich, Archbishop of Paderborn Hans-Josef Becker also supports "Mission Lifeline" with funds - money comes from the Disaster Fund of the Archdiocese of Paderborn
Munich (kath.net) For the private refugee rescue ship "Mission Lifeline" there is another 50,000 euros from a German bishop. After the Munich Cardinal Reinhard Marx, Paderborn Archbishop Hans-Josef Becker is now supporting the controversial ship with funds. The 50,000 euros come from the disaster fund of the Archdiocese of Paderborn. The ship's captain, Claus Peter Reisch, is currently being investigated in Malta on the grounds that his ship is not properly registered and that he has failed to comply with instructions from the Italian Coast Guard to allow the rescue of boat people to the Libyan Coast Guard. Reisch is currently promoting a controversial fun T-shirt with the inscription "Tug King" on the front and "Team Umvolkung" [Umvolkung is a term describing the elimination of German identity.] on the back.
Whether it makes more sense to rescue the boat people directly in front of their home coast without returning them to their home, but to ship them to Europe, is currently very controversial. Proponents say it would reduce the number of dead if the refugees were rescued and brought to Europe, they consider Reisch’s relief action as exemplary and he received, for example, in July 2018, a prize from the Bavarian state parliament. Critics argue that this is just an encouragement, and that even more people will be encouraged to start ou in unseaworthy boats on the dangerous crossing, so the number of dead will actually rise with rescue operations. In addition, it is not common for people in distress to be taken to remote ports that are not even their home, although they are often picked up close to the coast of their home countries.
Claus Peter Reisch, the ship's captain, also shills controversial T-shirts on Twitter, which read "Tug King" and "Team Umvolkung".
