Next migrant ferry: Catholic dioceses donate €125,000 for the new “Sea-Eye” ship
Three Catholic dioceses are donating a total of €125,000 so that the fourth “Sea-Eye” migrant ferry can actively cross-search the pickup zone in the spring. The news should certainly please the thugs who provide supplies and send fully loaded boats out to sea for the targeted “sea rescue”. The next migrant cutter willing to transport those who deliberately go into distress in rubber boats or nutshells that are unsuitable for the sea, with the small difference between being “picked up” or “in distress”, and to transport them to Europe as requested. The charity of the Good Samaritans only lasts until disembarkation in Italy / Malta, the taxpayers are held responsible for the supply and the lifelong follow-up costs, and European societies are equally charged and faced with the problems.
The German rescue organization Sea-Eye is financially supported by three Catholic archdioceses. She received €125,000 from Munich-Freising, Paderborn and Trier, as announced on Thursday. The Trier vicar general Ulrich Count von Plettenberg announced: “We cannot sit and watch as people drown on our doorstep.”
It is important not to forget to think outside the box when it comes to all internal church issues. The donation from the dioceses is intended to be used to transfer the fourth rescue ship of the Regensburg organization Sea-Eye from the shipyard to the Mediterranean for its first mission in the spring. The “Sea-Eye 4” is also the second rescue ship of the United4Rescue alliance co-initiated by the Evangelical Church in Germany (EKD). A further €50,000 will also flow to SOS Méditerranée from the disaster fund of the Archdiocese of Munich-Freising.
