Individual freedom has the smell of stored herrings. The EKD council chairwoman used Reformation Day to spread the ideologies of Catholic social teaching. Disempowered and weak-willed “faith sheep” need a guiding figure.

EKD council chairwoman makes her ambitions clear
A speech on Reformation Day given by the council chairwoman of the Evangelical Church in Germany (EKD:), Annette Kurschus, provides information and also motives of the once Protestant institutions. The EKD, which still claims to draw on the legacy of the reformer Martin Luther and thus tries to somehow legitimize itself as a daughter who has already returned to Rome, makes clear its view of the people it addresses and its self-image of its own position.
Statement by the EKD council chairwoman
The EKD council chairwoman made the following statement via video message (Source):
“Reformation was freedom movement”
Now the person addressed can choose whether Kurschuss used the “freedom movement” to address liberation from the dogmas and tyranny of the Roman Catholic Church, or whether the context of the Reformation has now been completely lost sight of. In both cases, the “Protestant” churches would have to question themselves as to why the repentant return to the Church of Rome was even intended (Info), and so that the freedom once achieved was voluntarily given up again. The EKD has apparently deleted from its history books what Martin Luther initiated with his Reformation, which was to openly contrast the truths of the Gospel with the “fantastic dogmas” of the Roman Catholic Church. Kurschus spoke about the “freedom movement” in the past, and thus ruled out in advance that Protestantism would continue today.
“Freedom has a strong smell”
The constructed analogy between the circumstances of Katharina von Bora’s escape and the “scent of freedom” testifies to – to say the least – a very individual worldview. Who thinks of the smell of herrings stored in barrels at room temperature when “smelling freedom”? Just a few days ago, the EKD council chairwoman sang something about “freedom, equality and fraternity” and described them as “the holy trinity of democracy.” (Info). So, democracy with a third share of “smell of dead fish”?
When it comes to the “strong smell of herrings,” Kurschus is not talking about freedom in general, but rather about the freedom of individualism. A person who dares to express his individual desire for freedom by sticking his head above the assimilated mass of the “common good” must probably expect to be separated into the environment of dead fish.
The “Transformation” – The Common Good
The phrase “brittle transformation” used by the EKD council chairwoman, also referred to as “transition, change”, and expressed by various circles with a simple “X”, here means nothing other than the subjugation of people to the dictates of a predetermined authority “Morality and Reason”. Freedom to “rage and bully” is certainly to be rejected, but the lives of individuals and society are far more multifaceted than the simple representation of the EKD council chairmen.
The infantilization and incapacitation of people, especially the EKD’s flock, actually seem to have progressed to such an extent that the expected “shit storm of indignation” against this unspeakable speech by the council chairperson did not materialize. A reflection of what the former Protestant institutions actually had in mind. The message contained: “The urge for individual freedom is exhausting.” People need a guiding figure who tells them what to believe, what opinion to represent and what external decision they have to follow.
Which guiding figure should it be?
You can literally read from the lips of the EKD council chairwoman who this leading figure should one day be. The narratives they cite, “Freedom, Equality and Fraternity,” are the language of “Fratelli Tutti,” the “Fraternity Encyclical” of Pope Francis (Source).
“We are impressed that some eight hundred years ago Saint Francis urged that all forms of hostility or conflict be avoided and that a humble and fraternal “subjection” be shown to those who did not share his faith.“
“In this way, he became a father to all and inspired the vision of a fraternal society.“
“For this reason, it is important that [Catholic] catechesis and preaching speak more directly and clearly about the social meaning of existence, the fraternal dimension of spirituality, our conviction of the inalienable dignity of each person, and our reasons for loving and accepting all our brothers and sisters.“
“Fraternity is born not only of a climate of respect for individual liberties, or even of a certain administratively guaranteed equality.“
“Words like freedom, democracy or fraternity prove meaningless, for the fact is that “only when our economic and social system no longer produces even a single victim, a single person cast aside, will we be able to celebrate the feast of universal fraternity”” (from encyclical Laudato si’)
“Liberty, equality and fraternity can remain lofty ideals unless they apply to everyone.”
EV churches are Rome’s speaking machines
The once Protestant churches have long since been exposed as mere speaking machines for Rome’s agenda. The EKD council chairwoman even reached into the pontiff’s collection of quotes for her “brainstorm” of the “national ego”. In May 2021, Pope Francis warned against “aggressive nationalism and individualism” (Source) and in February 2022 he again called for the fight against the “pandemic of individualism”. auf (Source).
The false prophet (Revelation 13) in the field of “theology”. And it will probably be implemented at the political level in around two years from overseas. Kurschus is “afraid” of rejection and resistance to this “transformed” “equality and brotherhood.” If she stays on this line, she should rather be afraid of the one who will have the final say on all things (Info).
Jesus Christ was very brief
For what Pope Francis needed with his “great work” Fratelli Tutti to describe his desired “transformation” and which was humbly repeated by the EKD Council Chairwoman, Jesus Christ only needed a single sentence for His ideas of a healthy togetherness:
Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.
Marx and Engels send their regards
“Equality, fraternity and justice” for all. This is “somehow” reminiscent of the philosophy of communism, aka Catholic social teaching (Info). All belongings are for the “common good”.
“But communism abolishes the eternal truths, it abolishes religion and morality instead of redesigning them, so it contradicts all previous historical developments,” is the wording in the “Communist Manifesto”. This book, as well as the book “The Capital”, which are attributed to Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, have found an enthusiastic readership. One of them is Cardinal Reinhard Marx, Archbishop of Munich-Freising. He proved to be an enthusiastic supporter of the philosophy of socialism or communism (Source).
