The chief guardian of Catholic beliefs, Archbishop Gerhard Ludwig Müller has sharply criticised the Human Rights Commissioner of the Federal Government, Markus Loening (FDP) (Cathcon- no surprise from the FDP- German liberals, a pro-business party who have since their origins been anti-clerical) and has indirectly called for his resignation. Loening was "a man in the wrong place," said the Prefect of the doctrinal congregation in an interview with DAPD and accused the FDP politician "screaming misconduct"
Loening had spread from his Facebook page the phrase "too stupid to understand science - Try religion". He then reported to have said, among other things, he wanted to test the tolerance of people of faith, according to media reports.
Müller spoke of a "total contradiction". A human rights officer violates human dignity of believers and wanted to justify it saying that "he will now test anyone who was offended." Even the Lutheran Bishop of Berlin Markus Dröge had accused the FDP politician of devaluing religious thought. Loening has deleted the record now.
