German Bishops' Conference Fires Dissident Journalist

Edit: "Wir Sind Kirche" or "We Are Church" is what you'd expect it to be. It's like its American counterpart, which Cardinal Bernardin once treated so daintily in times past.

The "We Are Church" President sits as a journalist for the German Bishops Conference, working for "Kirche In" and there he advertises for his own personal organization at the same time. Now the GBC is pulling his credentials.

Bonn ( The German Bishops Conference is announcing to the "We Are Church" - President, Chrsitian Weisner, who works officially as a German Correspondent of the paper "Kirche in", that by the action of the Conference, he is no longer accredited. This is according to Mattthias Kopp, the speaker of the German Bishops' Conference on Tuesday afternoon for

"Mr. Weisner has been accredited for the paper, but then used our press offering and facilities for the publicity of his association. It is not good style, when Mr. Weisner gave interviews by us -- that I wouldn't have allowed him to give", explained Kopp and stressed, that the newspaper doesn't have the problem, rather "it's the completely unusual behavior of Mr. Weisner.

"Kirche in" is an Austrian monthly, which above all, poses itself through especially aggressive anti-Roman reporting.
