Austrian Bishop: "Even Jesus Struggled at First Learning Diversity"

Edit: Bishop Schwarz is an advocate for married clergy as a solution to the "abuse crisis" and We Are Church, among others.
(Vienna) The crisis of the Church is not least described as a crisis of the bishops. This includes the pandering to the Zeitgeist and political power. Currently, the especially unconditional support of mass immigration, including concomitant Islamization of Europe is at a premium. Any means seems acceptable to justify it, even the degradation of Jesus Christ, true God and true man, to an arbitrarily bendable decal. 
A  bonmot in new speak and Episcopal confusion, which is a "delicacy" in Austria, was recently uttered by the Austrian Bishop of Gurk- Klagenfurt, Msgr. Alois Schwarz.
On January 7, he gave the opening speech at the Pastoral Conference 2016 Austrian Pastoral Institute (ÖPI) in Salzburg. "Pluralism in Society and the Church" was the politically correct topic.
As Kathpress, the news agency of the Austrian Bishops' Conference and the website of the Diocese of Gurk-Klagenfurt reported, the bishop addressed some 300 people with: "Even Jesus struggled at first  learning diversity." 
Jesus supposedly was obliged  "to learn" what "was   beyond the borders of the chosen people of Israel,  'to open up to and acknowledge strangers for their approach to salvation," said the bishop. "God strengthened in fact, 'abided diversity,'" quoted Kathpress. Bishop Schwarz  described a "learning process" of Jesus. Jesus is supposed to have [...] "learned, 'to be available to everyone' and to allow diversity',  said  Schwarz.."

Pope Calls Youth to Constancy, Courage

Holy Father's frequent exhortations for orthodoxy and for combat against heresy are heartwarming.

VATICAN CITY, JAN. 13, 2010 ( Benedict XVI today offered the example of a fourth century champion of orthodoxy as a model for youth.

In his traditional greeting to the sick, newlyweds and young people, the Pope mentioned the saint celebrated by today's liturgy: Hilary of Poitiers.

The fourth century bishop was energetic in his fight against the Arian heresy. And the liturgy calls him a "tenacious champion of the divinity of Christ."

He was a "defender of the faith and teacher of truth," the Holy Father said. "May his example sustain you, dear young people, in your constant and courageous search for Christ."

The Bishop of Rome also encouraged the sick to "offer your sufferings so that the Kingdom of God is spread in the whole world" and he urged newlyweds to be "witnesses of the love of Christ in family life."
