    This is a document many in Germany should read. Our media, if we neglect the yellow press hype for a moment, and cultural media like any other, made a "pop-star" out of John Paul II and condemned Benedict XVI. That Benedict in most cases simply thought like John Paul, was forgotten. Well, Benedict let that Williamson back in. That was horrible, and for me the reason to leave a church I had not much to do with at all, for good. There are not too many really religious people in Germany today. My ancestors were Jews from ages ago until 1945. The last ones of my family were not "very religious" Jews too. As some discussions today are hyped so much and sound noisy, one can be forgotten to overlook that a lot of people at least in Germany are not really religious any more. If market-radicalism doesn't count for a religion, that is.

This Valentine's day, celebrate not love, but the sublime bond of friendship
