The next church stink comes to light in Germany: After the former Pope Benedict XVI has been caught in a lie, today more than a hundred employees of the Catholic Church have come out publicly as homosexuals – knowing full well that they could lose their jobs. They demand an end to discrimination by the church.
They now receive support from the Bishop of Aachen, Helmut Dieser. In a news program on the public television station ARD, Dieser said today that the church’s view on the subject of homosexuality no longer reflects the times.
In response to a reporter’s inquiry as to whether this means that against today’s background the interpretation of the Bible is wrong, the bishop replied: “If one interprets it in such a way that fundamental statements are made there about the phenomenon homosexuality, which are on the level of today’s natural science, then yes.”
He is right, the bishop. And if one would get the idea to subject the Bible in its entire content to a scientific examination, then it would turn out that the complete work of art consists of fraudulent nonsense and superstition, because nothing of what is written there stands the test of science.
