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 Christian
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: Christian porn.
What next? A mainstream
snuff film? Um … erm … um … yea.
I think I'll stop here …

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