German bishop: «I in fact feel an aggressive mood against the Catholic Church recently.» Since the exposure of the abuse scandal the responsible people of the church had to experience that they are placed before a social tribunal. Read more:

Here extracts from news:

 

Only on the past weekend the head of the Roman faith congregation, Archbishop Gerhard Ludwig Müller, has caused sensation when he denounced a developing «pogrom mood» against the Catholic Church.

The formulations of Meisner and Müller were Friday also criticised by the own camp. The Essen Bishop Franz-Josef Overbeck: «I in fact feel an aggressive mood against the Catholic Church recently.»

But he also sees that the Catholic Church partly only has itself to blame for this aggressive attitude.

Professor Michael Ebertz of the Catholic College Freiburg says the comments of the two church men are an expression of helplessness. Since the exposure of the abuse scandal the responsible people of the church had to experience that they are placed before a social tribunal, said Ebertz.

To professionally and appropriately treat this changed and complex situation is an overtaxing for certain responsible people.

«As Catholic one asks himself: Why do responsible people in the church again and again do wrong?» said Ebertz. «The expression phobia therefore one actually has to see differently. It is a phobia of the Catholics before their church leaders. Many Catholics wake up in the morning and ask themselves: Where are they going to put their foot in today?»
