Another Old Liberal German Bishop Squanders 50,000 Euros on Invasion Fleet

Like the evil Cardinal Reinhard Marx of Munich, Archbishop of Paderborn Hans-Josef Becker also supports "Mission Lifeline" with funds - money comes from the Disaster Fund of the Archdiocese of Paderborn

Munich ( For the private refugee rescue ship "Mission Lifeline" there is another 50,000 euros from a German bishop. After the Munich Cardinal Reinhard Marx, Paderborn Archbishop Hans-Josef Becker is now supporting the controversial ship with funds. The 50,000 euros come from the disaster fund of the Archdiocese of Paderborn. The ship's captain, Claus Peter Reisch, is currently being investigated in Malta on the grounds that his ship is not properly registered and that he has failed to comply with instructions from the Italian Coast Guard to allow the rescue of boat people to the Libyan Coast Guard. Reisch is currently promoting a controversial fun T-shirt with the inscription "Tug King" on the front and "Team Umvolkung" [Umvolkung is a term describing the elimination of German identity.] on the back.

Whether it makes more sense to rescue the boat people directly in front of their home coast without returning them  to their home, but to ship them to Europe, is currently very controversial. Proponents say it would reduce the number of dead if the refugees were rescued and brought to Europe, they consider Reisch’s relief action  as exemplary and he received, for example, in July 2018, a prize from the Bavarian state parliament. Critics argue that this is just an  encouragement, and that even more people will be encouraged to start ou in unseaworthy boats on the dangerous crossing, so the number of dead will actually rise with rescue operations. In addition, it is not common for people in distress to be taken to remote ports that are not even their home, although they are often picked up close to the coast of their home countries.

Claus Peter Reisch, the ship's captain, also shills controversial T-shirts on Twitter, which read "Tug King" and "Team Umvolkung".

German Bishops Wallow in the Hysteria

Editor: There are far greater crimes than the very rare cases of sex abuse which have been manipulated by the enemies of the Church. Like howling with the enemies of the Church and helping them, for example, by capitulating to their false assertions.

Germany's Roman Catholic bishops kneel down, ask for forgiveness over clergy's abuse

By The Associated Press (CP) – 7 hours ago

BERLIN — Germany's Roman Catholic bishops say they are "deeply ashamed" by the abuse of youth by clergy men and the church's failure to hold the perpetrators to account.

The country's bishops kneeled down in a symbolic gesture Monday and asked for God's forgiveness at the beginning of their annual spring meeting in the western city of Paderborn.

The head of the German Bishops Conference Robert Zollitsch said in his prayer that men of the church have abused youth and damaged their lives.

German Bishops Conference Snubs Catholics Loyal to Magisterium

"The Foundations of the Church must not be made subject to dialogue"

Editor: The Pro Ecclesia statement was made against the signatories of the Memorandum proposing married priests, women priests and relaxing the rules against divorced receiving Communion. The signatories of Pro Ecclesia stand against them and in fidelity to the Magisterium alongside the Bishops and the Pope. To date, 12,000 from all walks of life have signed it.

Petition Pro Ecclesia: Review in a Room at Welcome Hotel in Paderborn

Zollitsch will not personally accept the petition "Pro Ecclesia" -- The initiator of the petition maintains that the dialog article of over 12,000 Catholics is being considered as a "burden to the course of the Plenary Meeeting".

Paderborn ( More than 12,000 Catholics of all kinds, including prominent philosophers like Prof. Robert Spaemann and Prof Hanna-Barbara Gerl-Falkovitz, have signed in the meantime the "Petition Pro Ecclesia" for the Bishops, since it was initiated last month in response to the "Memorandum" of alleged Catholic theologians desiring a change in Church teaching to suit the changing times.

This petition will reach the gathered Bishops at their Spring Plenary Meeting. The president of the German Bishops Conference, Archbishop Zollitsch, will not personally accept the petition. His secretary, Father Langendorfer SJ, has explained this. He will propose the "Dialog Article" on Wednesday "in a room at the Welcome Hotel" in Paderborn where representatives of the German Bishops will receive it. It is, as Langendorfer wrote to the Team of Petition Pro Ecclesia, customary as usual, that the secretary receives such petitions, as "not to burden" the course of the plenary meeting. The initiator of the Petition Pro Ecclesia, Peter Winnemöller expressed his "frustration and surprise" that the Dialog Article of 12,000 Catholics should be described as an imposition.
