    I'm amazed that God didn't send fire down and destroy the entire place, as of old. Playing Lennon's "Imagine" in a church? Might as well just hold a Black Mass.

    The Whore of Babylon. Maybe we really are living in the end times.

    At times like these,we realize how real God and the devil are

    They don't understand that by going so hard an fast, they are pushing us to cling to our Lord even deeper... nothing is worse to faith than indifference, and nothign better than open spiritual warfare with the forces of evil

    The Roman Catholic Church in Germany has been very liberal for a long time. Because of the church tax Germans must pay it is quite wealthy. That makes it quite powerful, too. If Germans were truly liberal they would repeal the church tax. That would severely undercut the German Roman Catholic bishops and their heterodox antics. The Holy see should flex its muscles and force its german episcopate to toe the line. As the current Bishop of Rome likes to keep everyone guessing as to where he stands on any position it is going to be a case of watch this space.
