Wolfgang Sedlmeir’s virtue is amply signaled, and he has told his congregation in no uncertain terms that opposition to the Muslim migrant inundation is “racism” and “bigotry.” But the sharp increase in rape and other crimes because of Muslim migrants? Noticing such matters is also “racism.” Noticing that some Muslim women have been brutalized and even murdered for not wearing the hijab Sedlmeir cheerfully donned? Also “racism.”
Pope Francis is likely to give Sedlmeir a red hat for this.
“Leave them; they are blind guides. And if a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit.” (Matthew 15:14)
“German priest wears Islamic headscarf in protest against anti-immigration party AfD,” by Abdelhamid Kaddour, Voice of Europe, May 22, 2018:
The priest of Our-Lady of Aalen in Germany, Wolfgang Sedlmeir, made his disapproval of AfD leader Alice Weidel after her remarks on the Islamic veil, by wearing one during the Pentecostal sermon.
“I can tell you that burqas, headscarf girls and men armed with knives living on welfare, will not assure our prosperity nor our economical growth and even less our welfare state,” Weidel said[.]
Weidel’s remarks, made during a debate in the German parliament, sparked the anger of Sedlmeier. To protest against what he perceived as “offensive and condescendent [sic] remarks”, he wore an Islamic veil during his sermon and was met with applauds [sic] by his audience.
“Anyone who discriminate against people who follow their faith and hose [sic] to cover their heads, is going against human dignity and the Pentecostal’s spirit”, explained Sedlmeier.
