Are all theocracies bad?
The Danes are making the case
that whenever the government appoints and directly pays (and/or fires) the folks on the pulpit nothing good comes of it. In Denmark, Lutheran ministers are hired and paid by the government. In the US or any other country where the parishioners ultimately decide what beliefs are acceptable on the pulpit a Lutheran minister who suggested that there is no such thing as a heavenly God would find himself in the unemployment line.
