Turns out one Thorkild Grosboel, pastor of Taarbaek, a town of
51,000 just north of Copenhagen, said in a recent interview that
“there is no heavenly God, there is no eternal life, there is no
resurrection.” According to the Times, this “mystified” church
leaders, and Grosboels bishop responded by suspending him.
For a week.
Thats right. A Lutheran pastor announced a personal theology that
denied the existence of God, resurrection, and eternal life and the
response of the church was a one-week suspension.
Wow. Talk about turning the other cheek. Thats some serious
tolerance of dissent. If Pope Leo X had been that forgiving toward
Martin Luther, we wouldnt have Lutherans.
Criminal Waste of Space
Nietzche saying God was dead is one thing. But for a Lutheran
minister? And not be kicked out or otherwise excommunicated?
The Onion should
give up satire and just report the news. Next think you know, there'll be
porn and … oh … um … darn!
But the “Christian” whoremongers have taken it to a step
beyond, way beyond the empty promises of the fallen-angel wannabes
whom they parade across our TV
screens on the “Christian” channels. And by that I mean the
God-fearin' faction that has moved into the lucrative business of
making pornographic films and carved out a whole new genre:
What next? A mainstream
snuff film? Um … erm … um … yea.
I think I'll stop here …

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the

using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
