German bishop urges Christians to combat anti-Gypsy prejudices

THE acting council chair of the Evangelical Church in Germany (EKD), the Rt Revd Kirsten Fehrs, has urged Christians to combat anti-Gypsy prejudices, and work against the hostility directed at Roma minorities in Europe.

“There are still prejudices, even outright hatred, against Sinti and Roma in many countries, including here in Germany,” Bishop Fehrs said.

“For a long time, the suffering inflicted against them was not seen, and the genocide not noticed. Since the Protestant Church also failed at that time, it’s all the more important that the EKD stands up against anti-Gypsy caricatures today, and supports inclusiveness.”
