Heinrich Bedford-Strohm, the president of the council of the Lutheran Church, has announced that they will purchase and sent a “rescue ship” to the Mediterranean Sea. Various groups of the “civil society” are expected to join in and the Catholic Council of the Bishops has already signalled its support. The step follows a resolution of the Lutheran Church Day. A look at the other passed, not yet materialized, resolutions show the nature of the church today.
Carola Rackete is entering a harbour without permission, hits a boat of the border control, and is now suing over hurt feelings. Salvini would spread “hate” and the feeling (?) of delegitimisation. She ultimately loses her “physical human dignity” while Salvini keeps categorizing her as a rich, spoilt brat commie.
Alerted to medical predicaments of her passengers, Captain Carola Rackete navigated her ship into an Italian harbour without permission. Italien authorities have arrested her. She had consciously broken the law, but could she have avoided it? Probably not at that stage. But what let up to the situation? And what role in the big picture does she play? Should she still be punished for it? I confess that I don’t hold all the answers. An open talk.
