Wiener Neustadt: Moslem sets fire to cathedral, obtains an islamic prayer in return.
In the catholic cathedral of Wiener Neustadt, an islamic prayer took place – an act of impudence, committed by the official church permitting this to happen. But it gets worse. The cause for the prayer was a fire set in the cathedral early in march by a moslem youngster whose damages cost 1 million euros to repair.
In order to celebrate kumbaya, an ‘interreligious worshipping’ was held including members of the catholics, mohammedans, serb-orthodox and the New Apostolic Church. But there were also protests.
This action has led to protests by catolics, expressing their resentment via the internet, also directly with those responsible. Also with some politicians, the worshipping act has led to amazement. FP÷ elderman Udo Landbauer speaks about a ‘total auto-castigation of the catholic church’. ‘For me, the fact is tragic that now even the catholic church’s dignitaries have raised the pain level of political correctness to an insupportable elevation’, according to the FP÷ bezirksparteiobmann [maybe: regional party president].

Different story, but same context: In Friesach, Carinthia, the oldest dominican monastery in the german-language area dating back to 1217 will be abandoned. It may be converted into a senior citizens' residence. How suitable!
