The German church condemns the country for not importing even more refugees.
While Angela Merkel receives increasing opposition for her immigration policy, the German church is insisting that she is not generous enough! Officials in the Rhineland’s Evangelical Church have been making statements that Germany has not taken in enough refugees.
So, instead of defending the immigration that Germany has allowed (and subsidized), these churchmen are claiming that the immigration policy has been too restrictive!
Happily, other voices have responded.
Breitbart reports, “Church Demands Open Borders for Europe: ‘Charity Knows No Boundaries’”
A vocal critic of any German and European attempts to limit mass migration, the church figure previously described the migrant deal between Brussels and Turkey as a “disgrace to Europe”, and conducted last year’s mass for the feast of Corpus Christi inside of a migrant boat last year.
Woelki’s views are not universally shared within the church, however. In Germany’s neighbour Austria, Archbishop of Vienna Christoph Schönborn has warned that many of the Muslims who reach Europe actively wish to conquer the continent.
“God have mercy on Europe and on thy people, who are in danger of forfeiting our Christian heritage,” the cardinal prayed at a mass in the Austrian capital’s iconic St. Stephan’s cathedral last year.
