Priest with no faith gets his job back after apologising

Ananova, July 25, 2003

A Danish priest who admitted to not believing in God has been given his job back after he apologised for his comments.

Two months ago Thorkild Grosbøll confessed to thinking that God was no more real than Robin Hood.

He also stated that he did not believe in resurrection or eternal life, reports Nettavisen.

The statements from Grosbøll drew criticism from figures inside the Danish church, media and the political community and he was dismissed form his position.

However, yesterday, bishop Lise-Lotte Rebel confirmed that the priest’s suspension had been annulled after Grosbøll apologised.

The Danish media are now questioning the priest’s credibility and the bishop’s right to decide whether his faith is strong enough.
