Lutheran Youth Group Distributes Condoms for Reformation Anniversary
Evangelical Church Youth Düsseldorf distributed condoms to young people, for example with the Luther quote: "Here I stand and can not do otherwise".
Düsseldorf (kath.net) The Evangelical Church in the Rhineland has stopped an action by the youth church of Düsseldorf. The youth church had distributed condoms with misapplied quotations from Martin Luther. The SWR and the "Bild" reported. On the packaging of the condoms were Luther quotes, for example, "Here I stand and can not do otherwise."
The church youth wanted to draw attention to the reformation jubilee with the action. The Landeskircheamt, meanwhile, in a letter denounced the action as fundamentally unsuitable for youth work.
