Bishop critical of asylum policyMy position is usually that a revitalization of Christianity would be good for Europe. But I occasionally get my doubts when I see what a pathetic bunch of dhimmis many church leaders really are. The Swedish Archbishop has even called for "giving more public space" to Islam, at the same time as Muslims are attacking churches in France and Christian symbols even in Scandinavia. Church leaders are at the forefront of calling for making Muslim immigration easier:
Bishop critical of asylum policy
Bishop Finn Wagle of the Norwegian Lutheran State Church has criticised Norway's policy on asylum seekers. He adds that the church also has an important role to play in integration. The bishop points to the fact that many asylum seekers have had their application decided by the Alien's Board without themselves having been present. In Wagle's opinion there has been an unacceptable curtailment of the interpretation of what is considered "strong humanitarian considerations". He says this has gone so far that there is no longer room for humanitarian considerations. He now hopes the Government will look closely at the practice. The bishop points to the fact that the challenges are increasing in all of Europe, not the least in France. The solution must be greater generosity and better integration through work, housing and community efforts, Wagle says. He adds that the church also has a great task in the integration.
Church Leaders Call for Asylum Amnesty
Writing in the influential Stockholm daily “Dagens Nyheter” the heads of the largest Christian churches in Sweden call for amnesty for the thousands of rejected asylum-seekers who have gone underground in this country.
Archbishop Says Asylum Nearly Non-Existent
The head of the Lutheran Church of Sweden has strongly criticized the government’s asylum policies. In an interview with the newspaper “Dagens Nyheter” Archbishop K. G. Hammar also comes out in support of groups which hide refugees to prevent them from being expelled from the country. The head of the former state church says that Swedish refugee policies have deteriorated so much over the past ten years that the right of asylum has more or less disappeared here.
