Greetings from Italy.
Not having time to prepare a much of a post during my business trip, I am posting this announcement on the German bishop’s conference decision to relax the Church’s labor employment standards. Not by a slim majority either – over a 2/3’s margin.
Now the line has been drawn in the sand – will Rome react or retreat? Since the church in Germany is essentially decimated by increasing secularism, there isn’t much to be lost by a mass excommunication of the Bishops that voted for the relaxation.
