Cardinal Lehmann attacked Cardinal Brandmüller in the his own paper "Glaube und Leben" and shamed himself with an open letter to the Cardinal -- no critical word for the CDU-Politicians -- see the Survey on Lehman -- speak out!
Mainz (kath.net) Cardinal Karl Lehmann, the former President of the German Bishops Conference had sharply attacked the Roman Curial Cardinal Brandmüller, because he had criticized a provocative assertion about celibacy by some CDU-Zdk politicians. The politicians had made an appeal to the German Bishops advocating for a change in the practice of celibacy. In this, they posed the question, "how can the growing priest shortage be dealt managed?"

The Roman Church must become more conservative. More Hell Fire and Brimstone, less Love and Peace. More Hate the Sin, More CONVERT the sinner. Tell me they last time you heard a sermon that dealt with the idea of eternal hellfire as rewards for your earthly sins? When was the last time you heard a sermon explaining the sin of artificial contraception, Abortion, lying to achieve your professional goals, theft of time from your employer, or the sin of pornography and how it saps the soul? Never?
If they adhered to the natural order and eliminated the homosexuals that invaded the Church during the post Vatican II era they would expand beyond belief.
I know several men in their forties and early fifties who left the Seminary because of the Homosexual activity while they where there. They where disgusted by it and could not get the hierarchy to address the problem. Solve the root causes and the Church will grow quicker and stronger. Attempt to poke around the periphery as they have for forty years, and continue to suffer the rewards of the sins of omission.
“how can the growing priest shortage be dealt managed?”
Close the “Pink palace” seminaries and give young men a chance to study how to be a priest without worrying about liberal homos attacking them.
We need more St. Jean-Marie Vianney’s and far fewer scripture scholars and liturgists.
