Lillis place for rants and musing about life, universe and the whole rest. Mostly left, mostly sarcastic, sometimes in german, sometimes in Lilli-english.

As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

None of their business
You know what I really dislike? When someone who is a professional in one thing, is automatically held for an authority in dozen completely unrelated other topics.
I mean, a politician should not preach in church, a celebrity should not be asked about his or her opinion in politics as long as the celebrity self is an active politician and priests should shut up about political things.
I can accept that many catholic priests talk about topics they never have experienced themselves. One can be a good pediatrists, even without havig a child oneself. But it really pisses me off, when a priest is trying to talk people into something just for the sake of being right.
Government and church are divided with best reason and I pray for a system where this division stands because otherwise I can hardly imagine live (I'm not talking about the UK and the Queen, she's not really the government, nor is she head of church, so really...
Whenever a priest starts talking about such politics, I feel like in a cheap talkshow, where B- and C-class celebrities were brought to give their silly opnions to even more silly topics. I don't care what politician Boris Becker prefers. I don't care in what God Steffi Graf believes in and I have other things to read than the confession of what Verona Feldbusch did in her youth (or also what not).
