Skip to comments.Ridiculed Bishop Strikes Back: More Fallout From "Loveparade"
Posted on 08/08/2010 4:23:07 PM PDT by 0beron
A well known Austrian Auxiliary bishop is not prepared to take the unjustifiable pummeling of the media bosses: Loveparade is not a "harmless celebration" -- If God "punishes", He does this with the intention to bring men around, God punishes out of love.
[kreuz.net, Salzburg] This Friday the Auxiliary Bishop Andreas Laun of Salzburg wrote a careful article about the Massacre-Loveparade in Duisburg.
The text appeared in the neo-Conservative Linz commercial website 'kath.net'.
The in the meantime suspended, so-called Loveparade was the biggest alcohol, drug and sex even of Western Europe.
Msgr Laun stated from the start, that no one is in the position, to directly order God's the the punishment for a sin.
There is not a single person who can condemn the dead and point to that as God's punishment.
Quite independently from the sympathy with the victims the Bishop wrote about the "repellent image" of the horrific event.
God is not and Indifferent God
The Auxiliary Bishop emphasized the truism that God punishes sins -- and really "with the intention to bring people to repentance, God punishes out of love!"
"Can one believe in a punishing God? Contradiction: <>
Would not a God without this indifference be an <>, and therefore unrighteous God -- not really the God, in whom we believe?"
The Auxiliary Bishop described Hell not as the punishment of God, rather as the self-alienation of the sinner from eternal Holiness.

What in the world is the “Loveparade” - is it a gay event?
You simply can't buy advertising this good. Expect crowds to double.
There is, however, a counterparade that consists of such elements - it has apparently been integrated into their "circuit."
Sounds like Woodstock.
Whether or not this is considered good advertising, the organizers have disbanded the event for good.
Of course, this kind of behavior is almost a year-round event in the Greek islands and in Ibiza - not to mention the red-light districts of every European city.
People being trampled to death is something that happens shockingly often in Europe, although it usually happens at soccer games.
Rather than downplaying this event, my point was that these kinds of things - drunken, dissolute people exercising no judgment and accidentally killing others or themselves - happens in miniature all over the US and Europe. I live near the Jersey Shore and every weekend we read the stories of fatal bar fights or drunk driving incidents and sexual assaults that occur as a matter of routine when degenerates gather in someone else's city and act as if the laws of God and the laws of physics do not apply to them when they are on vacation.

No idea what you’re talking about here. The rest of what you’re saying, I agree with.
