Russian Orthodox Church stops Cooperation with Germany’s Lutherans

with one comment

Margot Kässmann (or Käßmann) is a Lutheran bishop here in Germany. Last month, she was elected to lead the Evangelical Church in Germany (Evangelische Kirche in Deutschland, EKD).

Now the Russian Orthodox Church may decide to stop a dialogue which had started some fifty years ago.

To be fair, I wouldn’t want to work together with Margot Käßmann either. She’s a wannabe charismatic, and just annoying.

But that’s not why the Orthodox Church has a problem with her. They have their own share of wannabe charismatics and annoying people. Their problem is that Margot Käßmann isn’t a man. Worse, she is a woman, and the bible, besides telling you how to keep your slaves, also tells us, well, I dunno. And I don’t care.

I think that dialogue between different religions is a good thing. Stopping such a dialogue may be a good thing, too. After all, this one has been going on for fifty years, and I, a Lutheran in Germany, never noticed it.

I’m sure it can be nice to be Orthodox, too. I’m just wondering what’s so nice about it. But I’ll probably never know.
