See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. - James 5:7

Archbishop Robert Zollitsch

Maybe the Rhine ought to be damned.*
.
I think Germany just may need an exorcism. Hitler had to have unleashed minions of demons through his dabbling with the occult, seeking world domination, culminating in the extermination of millions of Europeans. After visiting the country, which is lovely, I nevertheless began to wonder if Germany was haunted... (Austria might be as well.)
.
The most recent evidence something is wrong in Germany is indicated by the statements of Archbishop Robert Zollitsch, Archbishop of Freiburg and Chairman of the German Catholic Bishop Conference:
.
"According to the chairman of the Catholic bishops' conference of Germany, the death of Jesus Christ was not a redemptive act of God to liberate human beings from the bondage of sin and open the gates of heaven. The Archbishop of Freiburg, Robert Zollitsch, known for his liberal views, publicly denied the fundamental Christian dogma of the sacrificial nature of Christ's death in a recent interview with a German television station.
.
Zollitsch said that Christ "did not die for the sins of the people as if God had provided a sacrificial offering, like a scapegoat."
.
Instead, Jesus had offered only "solidarity" with the poor and suffering. Zollitsch said "that is this great perspective, this tremendous solidarity."
.
The interviewer asked, "You would now no longer describe it in such a way that God gave his own son, because we humans were so sinful? You would no longer describe it like this?"
.
Monsignor Zollitsch responded, "No." - Source
.
That's pretty screwed up.

  2. You said "I think Germany just may need an exorcism"
    (Yep)
    Wasn't Martin Luther German too?
    Isn't this an old problem?

  3. I can't recall the name but there was German mystic who said that Germany was infested by whole herds of demons during the war years.

  4. The translation LifeSiteNews relied on is incorrect, and the story is basically bunk. I have informed them.

    Kreuz.net published the original text in German, so you can read it there.

  5. Thanks RC - can you provide any source to refute the story? I checked Lifesite and the story is still there. I would publish a correction if I had a link to what he really said. Thanks.
