How we do it in Denmark

you'd think, after all, it is a lie. Similar to this, I thought, when the other day I read the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten story about the christian school Jakobskolen. The school in Risskov, reported in december to cancel a christmas event at the local nursing home, because it was a female priest, which stood for the service.

the Decision was taken by the headmaster Berth Markussen, who has called it a møgsag. If he could do it, he would not have reported the apologies, he said to Jyllands-Posten (JP), when the case came forward.

He argues, however, that it has nothing with sex to do, but that he would take account of individual families and children.

Here aims he to a forældregruppe, as the opponents of female priests. According to Markussen is it about five parents who do not want their children to get the gospel presented by a woman.

Christian danes, who behave as if we live in the prophet Paul's time, where women should keep silence in the assemblies. I know it's good when I tugs at a little up in the memory.

For well over a year ago could TV2, for example, tell that eight percent of the male folkekirkepræster according to a survey, the opponents of female priests. A boring fact which is backed up by associate professor in sociology of religion at the University of Copenhagen, denmark Brian Arly Jacobsen, who the other day said to JP, that opposition to female priests is a common theme in some frikirkemiljøer and certain places in the church. Particularly in the Inner Mission and Lutheran Mission is the attitude widespread.

Why to people forget that it is such?

It is easy to blame the politicians, for they take it not so heavy. Church and minister Mette Boch wondered in connection with TV2's history, the pastors point of view, but believed at the same time, to different bibelsyn can thrive in the spacious Danish national church.

on the Jakobskolen prompting education minister Merete Riisager to their senses. It is important to keep the proportions in mind, she believes. And it must not be such that you can't operate a free elementary school, if you have conservative positions or other positions, as the majority agrees, it sounds from the minister.

the Socialists have demanded an explanation from the minister on friskolernes view of women. Both the christian and the muslim. But otherwise, there has not been a big outcry from the political team, and this is probably not the way to suppose, that it had been different, if it had been about a muslim free school.

but it also applies to media coverage. We could be a little more virulent, such that it is not only once a year, we wake up and think: God yes, the kind found also. We should probably not assume that there will be a delegation of politicians travelling to the darkest depths of the indremissionske Denmark at a ceremony to demonstrate what it really means to be Danish.

The ’photo opportunity’ is not so much to højrebenet as Støjbergs handshake.

We must get down to work and dig things up, as Jyllands-Posten did it this week.
