Ho-Hum, German Theologians Call for End to Church Disciplines and Teaching (Again)

Last Friday, the German newspaper Suddeutsche Zeitung reported that one third of the theology professors in Germany, Austria and Switzerland signed a document demanding an end to mandatory celibacy in the Church.  They also demanded that the Church ordain women and that the laity have a greater role in selecting bishops.  Didn't this happen once before? Say, back in the 1500's when another dissenting priest provided all of them with the option of selecting a different church if they were really unhappy?  But, if they deserted the one true Church, who would provide them with work as dissenting theologians?

The more things change...
