Our old friend Cardinal Rainer “Man in the Boat” Woelki is back.
His Eminence is a cardinal in the Catholic Church (appointed by Pope Francis), the Archbishop of Cologne, and a high-minded member in good standing of the Gutmenschen. The great thing about being an archbishop in Modern Multicultural Germany is that you not only get to wear cool threads and hobnob with glittering celebrities, but you also get to promote the latest fashionable political trends with ample funding from the Vatican (see previous posts about Cardinal Woelki here, here, and here.
Cardinal Woelki’s most infamous stunt was to have a “refugee” boat hauled in from the Mediterranean to use as a prop at an outdoor altar when he was celebrating Mass in the square adjacent to Cologne Cathedral. He regularly hectors his flock with admonitions about their complicity in the suffering and death of all those poor, poor migrants who try to cross the Mediterranean in search of a better life in the fleshpots of Europe.
In his latest video, the archbishop puts on a life vest as a “stole” and uses a famous landmark bridge as a prop to once again berate German Catholics about their guilt in not helping those “refugees” and not making sure that all of them — every last thieving-and-raping one of them — is able to make it to the land of Milk and Honey and Welfare in Germany.
Make no mistake about it: despite his costume and his sonorous sermons, Cardinal Rainer Woelki is not a servant of our Lord Jesus Christ. His mission is not to administer the sacraments and feed his flock, but to help the political establishment bring about a borderless Brave New World Order in Europe. The fact that, assuming he is successful in his hectoring, the Church in Europe will be utterly destroyed is of no significance to him. The destruction of European Civilization and the elimination of Christianity are such trivial matters in comparison with the glory of ushering in the Multicultural Millennium in the continent formerly known as Europe.
|00:00||What I have here around my neck is a modern life vest.|
|00:04||In this way I want to raise attention to the fact that, in the Mediterranean,|
|00:08||far more than a thousand refugees have once again miserably drowned.|
|00:12||Drowned in that nice blue swimming water, where many of us just enjoyed our holidays.|
|00:18||In light of that, I can’t go back to business as usual.|
|00:22||Even though governmental and private initiatives|
|00:25||were able to save tens of thousands, I feel helpless.|
|00:29||Every single dead refugee drowns in our indifference.|
|00:34||“But Mister Cardinal, the number of refugees has markedly dropped!”|
|00:38||Yes, but only because those in distress are not wanted on European soil!|
|00:44||The people seeking shelter and help are now, for example,|
|00:47||taken back to the horror camps of Libya!|
|00:50||A country where refugees are betrayed again, persecuted, beaten and raped!|
|00:56||But we — yes, we have got a white vest and fewer refugees.|
|01:00||I think that is cynical! As a bishop, like all priests,|
|01:05||I wear a stole over my shoulders, almost like this life vest.|
|01:09||The stole is a symbol, it represents the burden of Christ, Christ’s mission:|
|01:15||“Whatever you did for the least of these sisters and brothers of mine, you did for me.”|
|01:20||This, among others, is a core mission of Christ!|
|01:23||And when I hear now that the private aid initiatives were hindering rescues,|
|01:28||or even aided human trafficking — then it makes me really angry.|
|01:32||After all, those many volunteers from “Jugend Rettet” or MOAS|
|01:36||only started their rescue ships when so many people were drowning!|
|01:41||They began their passionate rescue work|
|01:45||because our governmental, and European, aid was halfhearted, and often came way too late!|
|01:51||On the high seas, everyone is obliged to save whoever is drowning.|
|01:55||S.O.S. — save our souls. Every one of us|
|01:58||can do something for his own soul when he|
|02:01||helps refugees in need. No matter where and how, and not just in the Mediterranean.|
|02:06||Helping and saving — that is not just a mission of Christian seafaring.|
|02:10||Yours, Rainer Woelki, Archbishop of Cologne.
