Protestant Theologian: Conservative Party Has Capitulated to the Zeitgeist on Abortion

Rector of the Freie Theologische Hochschule Gießen: "It is not conceivable that the CDU has nothing to say" - although abortion is punishable, the actual handling of the population leads to the impression that abortion is legal

Cologne (kath.net) In the topic of abortion, Stephan Holthaus has charged politicians and especially the CDU of a "capitulation before the Zeitgeist". Holthaus is a rector of the Freie Theologische Hochschule in Giessen and a professor of Christian ethics and apologetics. He spoke at a discussion in an Lutheran Freikirche in Cologne, which was also attended by deputy CDU chairman Armin Laschet. The Protestant "pro media magazine" reported on this. "100,000 abortions a year are an ethical catastrophe. I can expect that a political system that inscribes a Christian human image on the flag will protect life. "For him," it is not conceivable that the CDU has nothing to say." Although abortion is a punishable offense, the actual impression among the citizenry is that abortion is legal.

Holthaus demanded that politicians should speak more clearly about the fact that only a small percentage of abortions would be carried out because of problematic pregnancies. In addition, said Holthaus, according to the "pro media magazine", they should support the policy initiatives that accompany women in conflicts during pregnancy. Laschet replied that his state did exactly that, he then criticized the fact that the Lutheran Church did not have a clear position here.

Laschet had previously appealed to the participants to participate politically: "There are too few Christians in politics. It is good for the entire political spectrum that Christians engage. "It is conceivable to actively participate or at least choose to go."

A Program for Civil War

[Junge Freiheit] One and a half years after the escalation of the refugee crisis, more and more books appear, illuminating the background and consequences of the events. Robin Alexander just landed with his book "Die Getriebenen" the political bestseller of the year. In this book, he succeeds in chronically reevaluating the dramatic sequence of the opening of the border in September 2015, thereby laying bear the motives and failures of political leaders.
Now another book catches attention: "Inside Islam". Here the ARD journalist Constantin Schreiber went to the Friday prayer in 13 mosques to find out what is actually preached to Muslims in Arabic or Turkish. Schreiber summed up anxiously, the Imams preached against the integration efforts of the German state. At the same time, to be Muslim and Democrat were to be completely ruled out. And it was partly "harshly agitating against the Yezidis, the Armenians and the Jews," writes Schreiber.
"School without racism" bully Jewish students
A recent incident at a community school in Berlin confirms the massive problem of anti-Semitism rampant among Arab and Turkish youths. A Jewish family, after repeated verbal and physical attacks on her 14-year-old son, saw no choice but to take her child from school. Three quarters of the pupils at this institution, which is engaged in the project of a "School without racism", have a migration background.
The fact that anti-Semitism is nowadays no longer "from the midst of German society" but from Muslim immigration, is a dilemma for leftist politicians and journalists. Some media, such as Spiegel Online, conceal the ethno-religious backgrounds of the perpetrators in their reports about crimes.
The call to hatred of unbelievers is dangerous
But we do not get any further. The facts must be on the table. Some of what Constantin Schreiber excavates in "Inside Islam" sounds alarming. That Christians have forgotten to see themselves committed as believers to a mission is a problem of Christians, not the Muslims. The fact that sermons  invoking fervor of the faith, is sorely lacking among pastors. What is dangerous is the call to hatred for the other believers and the state.
Here in Germany, half a millennium ago, in the Thirty Years' War, we had to learn secularization through bloody religious conflicts, constitutions, and the rule of law. It has taken centuries to live with confessional opposition among Christians. Uncontrolled immigration of Muslims makes integration into a task that is no longer manageable in a quantitatively simple manner and is thus a program for civil war. Finally, politics should take heed.

Immigrants Beat Man Trying to Defend His Daughters

Schwerte. Several unknowns have attacked a family father in a train in Schwerte, North Rhine-Westphalia, after he was trying to protect his two little daughters. The attackers were "two to three men with an obvious migration background," said a police officer to a query by Junge Freiheit.

The father, with his wife, his son and his two daughters, were on a Saturday afternoon excursion on the regional railway 53 in the direction of Schwerte, when an unknown attacker tried to place his two little daughters on his lap.

Offenders also attack son and wife

When the 39-year-old Schwerte resident was talking to the men, they beat him abruptly. Even as he was lying on the ground, they beset him, according to the police. "When his 13-year-old son and his wife guarded him, they were also injured," the police said on Monday.

The perpetrators could flee unidentified. The father received a wound on the nose, lip, and has injuries to his ear and temple. "We've made a video review," the spokesman said. There are inquiries because of  dangerous bodily injury. (Ls)

Munich Priest Speaks of the "Natural Disobedience" of the Priest

Controversial Munich priest Schießler praises the DBK statement "free decision of conscience" for the remarried divorced and now calls for the "blessing of homosexual people", Catholic-Evangelical liturgy and abolition of priestly celibacy

Munich (kath.net) The German bishops have written "a word for renewed marriage and family pastoral in the light of Amoris Laetitia,"  the "individual, personal and free conscience of the person concerned" ... "finally!" Praised the Munich priest Rainer Maria Schießler in a guest commentary in the "Zeit" - entitled  "Christ & Welt". Then he went on to explain that the Church was "far from the end of this path." It is important to see, to formulate and to put into practice "many things: the blessing of homosexual people who simply have to realize that they are not capable of a heterosexual partnership; The communion with our evangelical sisters and brothers, because it is not about equality, but about the unity that we already possess in Christ; Or the free choice of life for all those who also aspire to the higher, that is, the priestly ministry, in the Church, because the priestly proclamation of the gospel can also be entrusted with good faith, even in people who live in a loving relationship."

In addition, Schießler warned "of a verbal disarmament in the tone". This was addressed to those whom he described as "the ultra-conservatives in our Church." Supposedly, they would speak of the "Communion of adultery." But those who were "concerned with statements of a Communion of adultery or other conceptions" would not "just injure men," but "inflict a considerable harm on the Eucharist". For "the Eucharist community of Jesus of Nazareth is not a body of perfects, as we would like to see. They are the unsaved, the broken, who have just been given a new (higher) life perspective through the communion with Christ."

At last, Schießler wrote in "Christus & Welt", "this ruthless rejection of the seeker is no longer valid," "finally the individual believer decides, in his own personal freedom, what he is called to." According to Schießler  "the former reward and punishment mentality on this subject" had nothing to do with the Church of a Jesus of Nazareth, who deliberately sought the failed and the stranded."

Schießler is incardinated in the Archdiocese of Munich as a pastor, TV personality and author of the bestseller "Himmel - Herrgott - Sakrament: auftreten statt austreten. [Heaven - Lord God - Sacrament: encounter instead of leaving.] He openly acknowledgesy "Gunda", who has been at his side for 20 years. According to his self-understanding, he does not violate his promise of celibacy, because "the sexual act is definitely excluded", but "tenderness" is "important", kath.net has reported. In other respects, too, he tends to be a media-active celebrity. For example, he had aroused anger when, in the summer of 2011, he built a beer table in front of the altar steps of his church and demonstratively enjoyed a liter of beer during an interview with "Munich.TV" (photo above), kath.net has reported. He once even expressed the wish to make a restaurant with a beer garden from a side chapel of St. Maximilian.

The Asylum Crisis is Costing Germany Almost 21.7 Billion Euros in 2016

BERLIN. [Junge Freiheit] The asylum crisis cost the Bundesrepublik 21.7 billion euros last year. This is evident from the monthly report published by the Federal Ministry of Finance on Friday. For this year, € 21.3 billion has been earmarked for the national budget.
For the reception, registration and accommodation of asylum seekers, the federal government spent 1.4 billion euros, for integration services 2.1 billion and for combating the causes of flight 7.1 billion.
Social benefits of the federal government cost another 1.7 billion euros. As a direct relief, the federal government also provided the federal states and municipalities with 9.3 billion euros.
Huge stimulus package"
"More than 90 percent of the federal expenditures," says Ferdinand Fichtner, the economic researcher of the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW), have, however, continued into the economy, such as the spending of refugees for foodstuffs and other consumer goods, rental payments or construction investments. "This can also be described as a huge economic stimulus program," Fichtner told the news agency Reuters.
In 2015 about 890,000 asylum seekers had come to Germany, 2016 about 280,000. According to the report, "high entry rates" were limited to the year 2015.
"Into the black" could be held
The Ministry points out that on paper, in 2016, the Bundesrepublik could, for the third year in a row forgoing new debts and still keeping in the "black" with the budget. A surplus of 6.2 billion euros had even been achieved. This was due above all to the high tax revenues and low interest rates.
At around EUR 289 billion, the Federal Government achieved a 2.6 percent increase in tax revenues in 2016 compared to the previous year. At EUR 288.6 billion, the increase was 7.7 percent for the federal states. At the same time, the government had to pay 17.5 billion euros interest last year - 2.8 billion euros less than expected. In 2015 the interest payments amounted to more than 21 billion euros. (Gb)

The Attack on Berlin: Donald Trump Speaks Where German Politicians Are Silent Out of Indifference, Cowardice or Evil

(Berlin) Nice is Berlin, Berlin is Nice. The balance of twelve deaths and 49, some of them severely injured, of the Islamic attack attempt on the Christmas market on the Breitscheidplatz near the Berlin Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtniskirche brings the multicultural and interreligious back to reality. The civil society compulsion of self-abandonment and self-expulsion, which was raised to state-rebelliousism, had suffered shipwreck, as was foreseen. The assassination attempt of Berlin is only the terrible epilogue of this failure.
In Ankara the Russian ambassador was recently shot. The assassin was precise and ice cold. He acted professionally because he had been trained as a policeman. In Berlin, on the model of Nice, a truck raced into a peaceful crowd. Whoever should fall beneath the wheels would be killed.  But the intended were Germans,  Christians, Europeans. The assassin had the target in his visor with his hand on the steering wheel and  foot on the accelerator. 
The assassin was a "refugee" from Pakistan or Afghanistan, according to the Federal Ministry of the Interior. But not even now, politicians and the media lack the courage and the decency to put the word "refugee" in quotes. The Polish driver of the truck had previously been shot by the assassin.
The "nightmare," which has come true, now speaks of those who have hitherto done little to prevent it. The new migration of peoples must be accepted, there is no deviation from that, the mantra of insistent brainwashing, which is accompanied by thought-control and verbal prohibitions, in order not to miss the desired effect. Within such a narrow framework, the state contented itself with the attempted maintenance of internal and external security, which is more than justified, as Berlin proves. And as other attacks have already cruelly proven, even in Germany.
The politics and the exclusive opinion makers do not want this. This has a name and it is called denial. Germans, the Austrians, the Europeans are going to have to accept the "challenges of a multicultural society". Terror attacks, murder and manslaughter have been regrettable but inevitable collateral damage for the "big project". This is not a random joke or an verbal gaffe, but a deliberate plan in which a heterodox alliance has emerged at an early stage, which, although acting for various reasons, with  different interests, dissolves European peoples, deprives European states of their sovereignty, undermining the rule of law and jeopardizing security, in short, undermining the community. What is meant is the policy that redefines the German people to the population, eradicates the word nation from their language habits, makes the family defenseless, and wants to reduce Christianity to a social union. The statement is freely transferable to all other "Western" European peoples and states.
In the face of such a coo-coo idea like the "big project", citizens are increasingly wondering how their European homelands could exist so far without "diverse colorfulness". And yet, they have existed, and without exception, without fear of the women and girls venturing out into the street, without fear of the family fathers visiting with their children in a lively place like a Christmas Market, without giving whole zones over to the police and state. Why all this? Why are we doing this, Mrs. Merkel? This question is also addressed to the Greens, the "Immigration Party" par excellence, to the columnists of the editorialists, the leading representatives of the economy, and the state-acclaimed cultural blinders, whose independence goes, at best, only as far as the edge of their own bed. "Is this fun to you?" Wrote a Syrian Christian, after hearing of the terror attack in Berlin, referring to the Berliners, the Germans, the Europeans in general. His words are an accusation and an expression of disappointment at the same time. He had to flee from Syria, but did not strike out on the road to Europe, and could not understand how Europe opens the doors to those who are to blame for his fate.
The coming Christmas festival is now overshadowed by the bloody terror attack on Berlin. Even more unbearable will be the cloying speeches of the politicians and the media commentators who will explain to us in their devilish way that the tragedy is "irreversible", that we should "endure" (for what?), and this will all be garnished with the words of a farcical language such as "civil society" (the "axis of the good" will at least hopefully be sought out), "tolerance", "kuntibunti [color culture]", and "inclusion". False because the premisses are wrong, because the overall project for which these words are used is absurd and has always been absurd.
The fact is that Germany is importing the problems and conflicts of the world through its immigration policy. No one can credibly explain the reason why a state and a nation were to do such a thing. The people were never asked, and the state was usurped by those who were merely representatives of the people and not self-sovereign state proprietors. People were presented with beautifully wallpapered ideologues. The media company made it possible, the Internet has restored a free space. The wallpaper has long since blown off, revealing the cheap decoration of a movie theater, a fake. But who wants to live in a Potemkin village, who always wants to think about reality?
US President Donald Trump said in his reaction to the Berlin assassination something that Germany's politicians hide from saying out of cowardice, indifference, ignorance or wickedness: "The Islamists constantly kill Christians in their communities and prayer places as part of their worldwide jihad." This is simply the reality. But for German ears, however, this sounds already like a bold assertion. In order to  hear a voice of the persecuted Christians in the Middle East,  one has to look far and wide in the Bundesrepublik in the search and will only find it in  the second rank among the so-called established
parties. Trump says what the facts are: the murder of Christians is a certain aim of the Jihad. In Nigeria was in Nice as in Berlin.

743 Christian Refugees Have Been the Victims of Assaults in German Asylum Centers -- Open Doors Report

Open Doors makes refugee report.  Within 743 attacks are
reported against Christian refugees in German asylum centers.
The majority have been victims of Muslim "fellow refugees".

(Berlin) The Fund for persecuted Christians Open Doors Germany put together with other aid and human rights organizations report the refugee " Lack of protection of religious minorities in Germany " before. This religiously motivated attacks on 743 Christian refugees are documented and analyzed in German refugee centers.
The report quoted German Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière with the words: "We have underestimated the importance of religion." The Minister was moved to these words in retrospect on the events of recent months.
The  consequences of these findings is reflected "especially in the German refugee centers,"  says Open Doors.  Through the concealment of these facts, has led to many "wrong conclusions" about the reasons there are many attacks directed especially against Christians, which has led to the "neglect in refugee centers" which fails in the  protection of non-Muslim religious minorities from Muslims.
Last May, various aid and human rights organizations have come together, "to draw attention to the clustering of attacks against Christians and other religious minorities in German refugee camps and to demand effective protection measures for them."  The aid and human rights organizations include the Action for Persecuted Christians and Needy (AVC), the International Society for Human Rights (IGFM), Kirche in Not , Open Doors and the Central Committee for Oriental Christians in Germany .
At a press conference on May 9 in Berlin, reports of 231 refugees were submitted reporting "of the massive discrimination,  death threats and violent attacks, which refugees in Germany suffer because of their Christian faith."
This first collection was continued by the participating organizations. The result has now been submitted to "significantly extended data base". "The documented cases demonstrate the continuing unacceptable situation of Christian refugees who are discriminated against, beaten and threatened with death in the German refugee centers as a minority, by Muslim refugees and partly Muslim employees (security guards, interpreters, assistants). Even ten refugees of the Yezidi faith participated in the survey. Their information has been evaluated separately in this report."
Among the 231 Christian refugees whose negative experiences were documented, 512 more cases were added in the months from May to September. In 743 cases there were religiously motivated attacks against Christians, in ten cases against Yazidis. All attacks were carried out in asylum facilities in the Federal Republic of Germany.
The distribution of those affected  shows Berlin with 146 assaults at the top of the negative scale, while in Saxony no assault was revealed.
Of those, there were 314 reported death threats, 44 of sexual assault, 416 of bodily injury. In addition, 615 cases of "other persecution". 83 percent of these affected indicated that "several times" there were assaults.
The Christian refugees  are  "used to being treated as second-class citizens" in majority Muslim homelands. Now they see that they too can find in Germany no effective protection and reporting the violence and death threats to the police have no consequences for the perpetrators, since the Muslim perpetrators are in the majority, and often make counter charges."
In homes and refugee centers in many cases it is not the perpetrators but the victims who are perceived and accused of being "troublemakers". "Lately we are seeing it more and more that Christian asylum seekers are concerned with house bans, because they interfere with the supposedly good coexistence in the homes."
A majority of the surveyed Christian and Yezidi refugees, therefore, are hoping for  "separate accommodation".  Several also asked for  "no Muslim security personnel".
The overall impression:  Muslims are more welcome than Christians or members of other religious minorities in the "Refugee Welcome"-- apparatus.

Benedict XVI Criticizes German Church-Tax

Emeritus in Seewald-book: he had great doubts about whether the Church-tax system as it is now, is correct - "The automatic excommunication of those who do not pay it, in my opinion, is untenable."

Rome (kath.net) Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI. has discussed in his interview book "Last Testament" about "the church-tax in Germany" in a Peter Seewald interview tape. He had great doubts about whether the church tax system in its current form is correct. Benedict XVI says: "But the automatic excommunication of those who do not pay it is, in my opinion, untenable." The book was published on Friday.

The Catholic Church in Germany is seen by Benedict XVI. generally in a critical light. "In Germany we have this established and highly paid Catholicism, often with employed Catholics who then confront the Church with a labor union mentality." The Church is just an employer for these officers, of which they are critical. For the Church in Germany is at a great risk that "a surplus of nonspiritual bureaucracy" arises through the many paid employees. "I am saddened at this situation, the excess of money, that is yet again too little, and the bitterness that comes of this, that malice, which is manifest in German intellectual circles." The readable introduction by Peter Seewald of his interview tape Pope Benedict XVI. is now available on kath.net in full length!

Germany: AfD Scores Resounding Victory

AfD Members: Celebrating in Schwerin 
The result of state elections in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is a slap in the face for the policy of Chancellor Merkel. One year after the opening of borders in Germany and the "We can do it" mantra of Angela Merkel, the decision of the voters was clearly determined in the northeast for a federal policy issue: the asylum policy and the influx of illegal immigrants to Germany.
According to initial projections, the CDU is falling to third place with 19 percent of the vote  and thus was one of its historically worst election results. The party was outclassed by the AfD, which will move from the state with 21 percent in the state legislature. Equipped with the incumbency of the popularly respected Prime Minister Erwin Selle, the SPD held 30 percent, but lost also about 5 percent.
Increase in turnout: citizens feel they have an alternative to vote on
Noteworthy is the increase in turnout by as much as ten percentage points from 51 to 61 percent. After years of steadily declining participation, there are  significantly more citizens going to the polls. The reason: Obviously, the start of the AfD has contributed significantly to the idea that citizens again have the feeling they have real political alternatives to vote for.
The success of the AfD is a success for democracy. Whether euro crisis, asylum chaos, national sovereignty or direct participation of citizens - at last it is not only in back rooms or social networks but that political decisions and decision-making are taking place in the place of a republic, namely the Parliament, to fight again with real pros and cons, which has you nothing to do any  longer with an absurd all-party coalition.
The  government tuteledge of citizens comes to an end
With this election result the triumph of AfD continues. It's all the more remarkable, since the party had to contend with massive discrimination and violent attacks by left-wing extremists. Upon the elections for the Chamber of Deputies in Berlin in two weeks, the young party founded only three years ago is expected to move into the tenth state parliament.
The established parties but also journalists in the mainstream media of the country must now  accept that Germany has experienced the long overdue normalization of its political landscape. The governmental tutelage of citizens by a political class now comes to an end. We are experiencing a positive re-politicization of society, the emancipation from a far left liberal dominated public opinion. And that's good!

Four Muslims Attack Convert in Germany

"Whoever speaks openly as convert to devout Muslims about his faith and does not hide his cross, is not safe even in Germany."

Maintal (kath.net/ idea) An Afghan Christian (31) has been attacked in Maintal (near Frankfurt) by four Muslim Afghans. They are to have shouted "Allahu akbar" (Allah is great)  and they wanted to kill him. This was announced by a volunteer of the Evangelical Free Church (FeG) Hanau, Benjamin Dauth (Maintal), with the Evangelical News Agency idea. The Afghan - his name is known to idea, however, not mentioned for security reasons - visited the community worship  and worked as a volunteer translator in a refugee camp in the city.

The attack occurred on the evening of 17 August. While getting on his bike, the Afghan Christian was outside his apartment, an Afghan tried to prevented him.

The fourth had, however, escaped. At the hospital, bruises on the shoulder, forearm and face were found on the Christian.  According to Dauth it was the third such attack on Afghan Christians. The situation is particularly difficult for him because he had converts from Islam to Christianity, "Who speaks openly about his faith as a convert to devout Muslims and does not hide his cross, is not safe in Germany.

"The Afghan Christian is still in the asylum procedure and has worked for a temporary employment agency. Three of the four attackers are housed, according to the victim in the refugee shelter in Maintal, in which he himself has worked as a translator. The fourth is allegedly living in Darmstadt.

As Dauth further said, other refugees from the Maintaler housing facility had warned the  Afghan Christians of an attack. The Muslim Afghans had talked about it in advance.

Berlin Capitulates to Leftist Terror

Burning car in Berlin (archive): Pampered terrorists Photo: dpa
Whoever speaks these days about Berlin has to talk about terrorism.   Cars have been burning daily for weeks, police officers are attacked and shop windows of businesses and politicians offices  are repeatedly destroyed. Yes, that's terror. What else would it be?
That national media and federal politics, if it ever addresses the issue, does it just as a side note for a simple reason: The perpetrators are left-wing extremists. Wearing disguises and armed with stones, paint bombs and explosives, they track each night throughout the capital.
Politicians call for discussions and de-escalation
A "black July" was announced with attacks on police officers and all "beneficiaries of the prevailing logic" by terrorists from Riga Street. "As much as you can take is what's allowed!" This is the provocation to the citizens of the city. They are the ones who have to co-finance the terror of dubious "democracy programs" and in the "fight against the right".
But Berlin would not be Berlin if the hatred of the Left was not at  least combined with stupidity and insolence of the politicians in charge. Berlin's mayor, has now called for a "de-escalation approach" something like the quintessential Berliner slum factor. Yes, even talking with the left-wing extremist scene. This should break the "spiral of violence."
Went even further the domestic policy spokesman for the pirate faction in the Berlin City House, Christopher Lauer. His logic: give leftist extremists their squat, then they will stop the violence.
A thought experiment shows all the madness
A thought experiment is enough to understand the bizarreness  of these proposals. What would Lauer and Müller do if  right-wing extremists or Islamists occupied a Berlin trolley and daily attacked policemen and set cars on fire? But would be what's going on.
At least inside Senator Frank Henkel (CDU) has recognized this and just drawn this comparison.Just help the Berliners with this little hindsight. For years, the excesses of the left-wing scene was downplayed, ignored, relativized or even celebrated.
No, Berlin does not need a de-escalation concept and no ominous "civil society". Berlin needs a war on terror.

"The perpetrators should proceed in small groups, have surrounded and touched immoral women". The police could then arrested three alleged suspects Pakistani asylum seekers. However, the investigation lasted still on. The police are looking for victims and witnesses to report to the officials.

Irmer: Who does these things, has forfeited his right to guest status"

The Hessian CDU member of parliament Hans-Jürgen Irmer reacted in horror to the incidents."Here the right of asylum is outrageously abused. This is totally unacceptable," said Irmer  to Junge Freiheit"Let me say quite clearly who does these things, has forfeited his right to guest status. There's only one clear answer to this: after a final judgment, back on the next plane to Pakistan," demanded the CDU politician.

Unfortunately, the incident was not a "singular event", which is why the state should now show a "sharp edge". However, it is also important to make it clear that the majority of asylum seekers do not tend in Germany to such acts.

Only the beginning of May during the Carnival of Cultures in Berlin there have been numerous sex attacks on young women. On New Year's night, there had been numerous assaults for hours on women in Cologne and other cities by asylum seekers and illegal immigrants. The incidents made ​​for a discussion of the internal security and the refugee crisis. (krk)

The main flowering is to be expected in the coming days, according to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Hildesheim this Monday. They should attract many visitors to the Diocesan Church, as they do every year. The legend of the rose tree, a wild dog rose, goes back to the founding history of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Hildesheim around the year 815.

 At that time, Emperor Louis the Pious,  built a chapel on the spot where a rose tree had twined about a precious reliquary [Of Our Lady's robe]. Ultimately this chapel was the site of the construction of the Hildesheim's St. Mary's Cathedral, whose outer wall goes back to where the legendary rose tree grows today. It has been testified in writing  for more than 400 years. Eight weeks after the destruction of the cathedral by bombs in March 1945, which even burned the rosebush, 25 new shoots sprouted forth from its spilled debris.

The diocesan church is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which opened again after extensive renovation work since the summer of 2014. The rose tree, a landmark of the diocese and the city of Hildesheim, is surrounded by a low boxwood hedge. The greenhouse is accessible through a single access point at the cathedral foyer, daily from 10:00 to 18:00 hours. The Hildesheim Rosenstock (C) 2016 CBA

Up to 40,000 Non-Muslims Are Harassed in German Refugee Centers by Muslims

According to a study, thousands of Christians who fled Syria and Iraq are exposed to in German refugee camps to violence and threats. In most cases there are converts.

According to a study thousands of Christians fled Syria and Iraq are exposed to in German refugee camps violence and threats. This was reported by the FAZ. Those responsible  for the attacks are said to be security personnel and Muslim refugees. 

On Monday several human rights organizations like ISHR ( "International Society for Human Rights"), ZOCD ( "Central Oriental Christians in Germany") complained at a press conference about  this violence in German refugee camps. 

The human rights organization "Open Doors" spoke here of a climate of "fear and panic". Meanwhile, 231 cases in the whole of Germany are documented. This would include discrimination, assault, sexual assault and to death threats. In most cases they were converts, while 204 are reported to have been attacked by other refugees for religious reasons.

According to Volker Baumann of the action for persecuted Christians and needy (AVC) up to 40,000 refugees are harassed in Germany for their religious beliefs.

Attempts to Torpedo Recognition of SSPX in the German Press Begin

(Rome) The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) today published a broadside against a possible recognition of the Fraternity of Saint Pius X founded by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre. 
" You do not provoke these rulers! " Is the title of the article by Christian Geyer-Hindemith. A recognition of the SSPX by Rome suggests a threat to the features editor.
"What a 'new humanism' would that be?" Asks Geyer in an idiosyncratic allusion to the acceptance speech of the Pope last Friday, as he was awarded the Charlemagne Prize in Rome.
The FAZ article first confirms that a canonical recognition of the SSPX by Pope Francis may be imminent, and with very favorable conditions for the Fraternity. It was founded in 1970 by Archbishop Lefebvre in response to the Second Vatican Council and its consequences with the aim to preserve the Catholic heritage undiminished in doctrine and discipline.
Against such recognition there is resistance stirring, and it comes mainly from Germany. The intention of the FAZ article is to generate pressure against such recognition. Thus the usual "fight against right-extremism" mechanisms and taglines are employed.
It is therefore likely to be expected in the coming days with further tendentious articles in the German "mainstream media" who want to prevent a canonical agreement between Rome and the SSPX. [Let's not forget Vatican Insider.]

"With Luther to Pope" -- Eccentric Pilgrimage Action

(Berlin) "With Luther to the Pope"  describes itself as an unusual "pilgrim action."  The Center for Youth Ministry of the Diocese of Magdeburg  has organized, together with the youth organizations of the Evangelical Church in Central Germany and the Evangelical Church in Anhalt is an "ecumenical journey to Rome".
"With Luther to the Pope" leaves a lot to be desired.  In fact,  the "Christian pilgrims" of Catholic and Protestant confession are not intending to pilgrimage to the tombs of the apostles in Rome. They want to present  "Theses and wishes for ecumenism" to Pope Francis, says Vatican Radio .
With its own website,  they advertised for the  800 located participants. "There are at least as many conceptions of God as there are people, and that's good," says the website of the 9th Ecumenical thesis, "Honouring Diversity". What the Catholic and Protestant organizers want to say is that each "idea" of God is indifferent. The bizarre  1st Ecumenical thesis is: "You're different, and that's my luck: I am only, because we are."
These "theories and desires" Although are not fixed yet, but are in "draft". Anyway, they should be 95 theses, in accordance with the obviously idealized model.

Catholic Diocese wants to bring  "With Luther" demands to  Rome


"With Luther to the Pope", its own website

The Bishop of Magdeburg is Msgr. Gerhard Feige, one of the last appointments of bishops by Pope John Paul II. In 2014  Feige appointed by Pope Francis to the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity.
Feige supported in 2015 the demand of Bishop Stephan Ackermann of Trier to change Catholic moral teaching. Feige said it was "finally time to stand open to the unvarnished reality and in the spirit of Jesus Christ, sensibly and fairly to struggle for responsible and life-serving solutions."  What was meant was the recognition of homosexuality, divorce, remarriage, and premarital sex.
This eccentric pilgrim action by a Catholic diocese, which wants to bring the "with Luther" demands to Rome,  finds a parallel to another controversial ecumenical initiative. On October 31, Pope Francis is to participate in  a Catholic-Lutheran Reformation commemoration in Sweden. Pilgrims will also  travel in autumn from all over Germany "With Luther to the Pope."
The patronage for the action has been assumed by  the ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany to the Holy See, the former Education Minister Annette Schavan (CDU). Schavan belongs to the progressive ZdK milieu. From 1991 to 2008 she was a  member of the Central Committee of German Catholics [We Are Church types] and held from 1994 to 2005 the office of Vice President. The Forum of German Catholics designated the Schavan appointment as ambassador to the Holy See as an "affront to the Catholic Church".
The German Bishops' Conference has established in 2013 its own project site "Reformation commemoration".
