RC Bishop Links Love Parade Tragedy To 'Sin'

"An Austrian bishop has described a German music festival stampede where 21 people died as a sinful event and suggested the deaths may have been God's punishment for losing faith.

Salzburg's Roman Catholic bishop, Andreas Laun, described the Love Parade and participation in it as "a rebellion against creation and against God's order, (which) are sins and an invitation to sin"."

[...]

"Writing on the German-language website Kath.net, Mr Laun warned against judging the dead.

At the same time, he indirectly linked the deaths to God's right to punish apostates - those who turn their back on the true faith."

It seems again that every religion has its own lunatics. What I, as a non-religious person, understand is that religion is something between you and your God. So why do you always have to judge other people in the name of your faith?

All this catholic clown is doing is kicking the relatives and friends of the victims in the back. That to me is a big sin.
