Reigning topic of the last days (global): The pope's death. The last day's ceremonies have shown me once again the advantages of the roman-catholic church. Even tragic events are accompanied by pathetic and sometimes almost mystic rituals. Not even a suggestion of typical protestant dislike of lust. I think even the mourning has to be celebrated in a proper way. When I was asking my wife if the protestants know "lent", I could answer this question in the same second: "Oh, yes of course. Whensoever it is time to agonize oneself, it is a protestant thing!". How can a church classify the day of Jesus' death higher than his resurrection ? No, no, I don't want to be a member of a club like this. Typical for a Rheinländer again!
