Meisner: The Contraceptive/Abortionist Cardinal

 

Spot the clown: Cardinal Meisner.

Spot the clown.

 

Cardinal Meisner is just another example of everything that is wrong with the Church in Germany. The local bishops and cardinals do everything they can to persuade their sheep they feel prisoners of an antiquated moral system they would like to “modernise” and harmonise with the wishes of said sheep.

How can it be a surprise that pro-life movement is so weak in Germany, if cardinals discuss on the supposedly legitimate ways to avoid that a baby be conceived. How can it be a surprise that common Catholics are so confused in matters of sexual morality, if another cardinal (Woelki, in this case) expresses himself in favour of sodomy within a “committed relationship”. The Gestapo was extremely committed too, therefore according to the cardinal its members must have been good chaps and their commitment worthy of protection?

The German prelates have largely demolished sound Catholicism in Germany, and through the work of their representatives during Vatican II they have largely contributed to the sabotage of Catholicism in the rest of the West, too. They are, today, mainly worried with the possibility of their extremely badly instructed sheep refusing to pay the “church tax” en mass; therefore, they try to pander to the wishes of their clients like, I must say it, a prostitute does.

And these prostitutes are rather active: the article linked to states that

The German bishops’ conference will take up the question of emergency contraception for rape victims at a regular meeting later this month.

Expect more heresy, at most thinly veiled by subtle distinguo, provided the German prelates really do care for distinguo at this point.

Still, their efforts are ultimately self-defeating. There is no reason why a badly instructed, or more or less indifferent German should continue to pay the Kirchensteuer to a man like Cardinal Meisner. What does Meisner say, that a journalist wouldn’t be able to say as well? Why should the average German Catholic – who does not understand anything of Catholicism in the first place – continue to pay an organisation that minimises the importance of being Catholic? Why should they make an extra effort for people beset with exactly the same ideology as everyone else out there? 

With their pandering to every wish of their clients, the German clergy is only postponing its demise.

They have made themselves useless. They will be recognised, and treated, as such.
