Murder or Dogma, Lord Archbishop Woelki?

Edit: Berlin's new Bishop has some difficulties with Humanae Vitae.

Whoever is unclear about the effect of the anti-baby-pill, can be informed by 'Bayer Leverkusen'. by Markus Miller

( The birth control and abortion industry have succeeded in their work.

Their ideology is hammered so deeply into the heads of people, that even its babblings can be heard from people who should know better.

At the request of the propaganda sheets of the abortion lobby, the Berlin news 'taz', Archbishop Rainer Maria Woelki said briefly:

"The prohibition against the pill is not a Dogma."

The False Prophet Father Karl Rahner

Msgr. Woelki has already publicly cited the left-Liberal Theologian, Karl Rahner († 1984).

This one was interviewed on September 1968 by the politically left, kiosk magazine 'Der Spiegel".

At that point Father Rahner also said that the prohibition against the pill through the encyclical 'Humanae Vitae' of Paul VI. († 1978) was only provisional and reformable.

With his dampening formulation allows Msgr Woelki to give the impression, as if the subject of the pill is still awaiting the last word to be spoken, and that the prohibition need not be taken seriously.

What must the youth make of this right now?

Implantation Will be Prevented

Let's turn from theological classifications and go to the website of the firm "Bayer" from its HQ in Rhenish Leverkusen.

This company is one of the largest participants in the money grubbing contraception and abortion industry worldwide.

It boasts the slam dunk effectiveness of its contraceptive pills:

"They generate alterations in the endometrial hyperplasia. So even in the unlikely event that an egg is fertilized and released, its implantation is prevented."

From Ten to Twenty Percent

As Archbishop Woelki knows, life begins at conception.

Children aren't just killed by the "morning after" and abortion pill.

Even the well-known anti-baby-pill kills a defenseless child if the contraceptive effect of the pill fails.

In the "improbable event" that the pill fails in preventing the release of the egg, but whose implantation is not subsequently prevented, occurs according to the estimates of experts in ten to twenty percent of the monthly cycles.

Taking a contraceptive pill over a time period of a year can result then in an average of about one to two abortions in the early stages of pregnancy.

New Berlin Archbishop a Surprise: Auxiliary Bishop Rainer Woelke

Editor: He studied at Holy Cross in Rome and is more conservative than what might have otherwise have been. He wasn't on the short list chosen by the locals either. This was likely a personal choice.

A difficult birth.  The successor of the deceased Cardinal Georg Sterzinsky as Archbishop of Berlin will be made public shortly.
Auxiliary Bishop Rainer Woelke

( at 12:00 o'clock the Cathedral Rector Stefan Dybowski, like the 'Angel of the Lord' will announce the Archbishop of Berlin.

It will fall about the Cologne Auxiliary Bishop Msgr Rainer Maria Woelki (54).

The Archdiocese of Berlin has about 400,000 Catholics on paper.

The region of Upper Pommerania and part of Brandenburg belong to this Archdiocese.

The previous Ordinary, Georg Cardinal Sterzinsky († 75)died on June 30th a few days ago.

Previously, Curial Bishop Josef Clemens (64), Cologne Auxiliary Bishop Heiner Koch and Berlin's Auxiliary Matthias Heinrich were hot candidates for the office.

Msgr Woelki studied Catholic Theology from 1978 - 1983 in Bonn and Freiburg.

He was ordained on June 14th 1985 by Archbishop Joseph Cardinal Höffner in Cologne Cathedral.

After pastoral activity as chaplain to St. Marien in Neuss, as Minister of the Kolpings family Neuss-Zentral, Military Pastor and chaplain to St. Joseph in Ratingen, he was made the Archbishop's chaplain and personal secretary.

From 1997 to 2003 Msgr Woelke was Director of the Theological Faculty of the Albertininum in Bonn.

Pope John Paul II named him in 1999 as a Chaplain to His Holiness.

In 2000 he was at the Papal University of Holy Cross -- which is directed by Opus Dei -- in Rome where he received a Doctorate for a dissertation on the theme "The Parish -- an Article on its Ecclesiological Localization" [ „Die Pfarrei – ein Beitrag zu ihrer ekklesiologischen Ortsbestimmung“]

Pope John Paul II named him as titular Bishop of Scampa in 2003 and sent him to be Auxiliary Bishop in Cologne.

Joachim Cardinal Meisner consecrated him a Bishop on 30. March 2003 in Cologne Cathedral.

Co-Consecrators were his predecessor Auxiliary Klaus Dick and current Auxiliary Bishop of Cologne and current Bishop of Hildescheim, Msgr Norbert Trelle.

Joachim Cardinal Meisner named Msgr Woelki as the Episcopal Vicar for questions of Doctrine and Ecumenism and charged him with the East Pastoral District of the Archdiocese.

In 2003 he was elected as resident Cathedral Rector.

Since 1 Juanary 20005, Msgr Woelki has been Diocesan Vicar of the Permanent Diaconate and since 1 January 2006 as responsible for the North Pastoral Area.

He is a member of the Commission IV "Spiritual Professions and Church Service" and VIII "Science and Culture" of the German Bishops Conference.

Church insiders get more important Diocese than Berlin.

The Archdiocese is attractive for that reason, because the coming Archbishop will be put into the ring for elevation to Cardinal.

As one of the first official acts the new Bishops will be requested to visit the Pope on September 22.

The naming of Msgr Woelke for Berlin is probably a first step, toward being later sent back to take over the Archdiocese of Cologne.
