Dialogue instead of mission

Alle Welt- the Whole World is the magazine of Missio, the Austrian "mission" society. In their January/ February edition, they have an article entitled God speaks many languages. It is approvingly illustrated with this picture.

But worse is to come in another article with a priest describing his participation in the spider god ritual of Thailand. This is also illustrated (Father Pairat on the left in the first picture).


 And who was ultimately responsible for this magazine; the former National Director of Missio, now Bishop of Linz. Despite a priest shortage in the Diocese, they won't allow foreign priests in, but it looks as if witchdoctors will be welcome and made to feel at home!
