German Jesuits Run Tea-House Mass
Germany. The chapel which is run by the Jesuit educational house, Lasalle -- in the 4,000 population community of Menzigen in the Canton Zug in central Swizterland -- looks like an Asian tea house. The supper table is carelessly pushed aside. In its place stands a small table for a tea ceremony. There the priest sits cross legged and presents the New Rite of the Mass. The irony of fate: the General Council of the SSPX is located in Menzigen.

Good Morning, Lord Auxiliary Bishop: Homosexuals are sex offenders
Austria. The homosexual disorder is not the worst of all sins. This thesis was suggested by Salzburg Auxiliary Bishop Andreas Laun on Wednesday in the commerce site 'kath.net' in a guest article. Msgr Laun told a tale of true homosexual sex offenders. He values the "sins of homosexual people, who, all in all, go along with love for each other" not as bad as "the sins of people who exploit those in the third world, the sins of sex offenders and many, many other crimes."
