|That Homily Spoke to Me|
If you ever really wanted to keep people from going to Mass, this is it! Mass attendance in Germany and the West in general of course is catastrophic, and this is a significant part of the reason why. This Liturgy is actually a lot more underwhelming, embarrassing and nauseating than it is erotic.
It really underscores the delusion on the part of the presumably (kath.net says he is) homosexual pastor and the people who tolerate him.
A Nassau-Hessian homosexual Pastor: "We are crying for God with desire."
Wiesbadent (kath.net/idea) In order to make a powerful media echo, about 200 [Mostly over 60] visitors packed a church to have an "erotic Liturgy" on the 5th of August in the Wiesbaden city district of Mainz-Kastel. It was held under the motto, "In the Vineyard of Love". Numerous media reported about the service in the internet editions, by "Frankfurter Rundschau", the "Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung", the "Suddeutsche Zeitung", "Die Welt", "Stern", "Focus" and of course "Der Spiegel".
Edit: The local was unimpressed, but the pastor's language is quite deplorable and odd. Why should people be subjected to this sort of thing?
Ralf Schmidt of the Erlöserkirche ("Church of the Saviour") in Wiesbaden, western Germany, had promised a service celebrating the divine element of physical love, news magazine Der Spiegel reported on Sunday.
"There is no life without eroticism, and no life without God," he said during his sermon, the Frankfurter Rundschau newspaper reported. "Taste each other, look at each other, feel each other, feel how friendly life can be. My backside, my hands, my tongue, my penis, my earlobes are the landing spots of love. In this way we want to enjoy what God has given us, even though we don't have paradise anymore. Because love comes from God, not the devil."
Later, he led his 200-strong congregation in a swaying dance as they held hands to foster a sense of intimacy, while the organ played Elvis Presley's "Love Me Tender."
