The Bishop elect of Innsbruck, Austria, Father Hermann Glettler, 52, has called for female deacons and stated that female priests were "not so utopian".
Talking to APA he further said that he was "very much" in favor of Communion for adulterers claiming that this was in keeping with the Gospel, although this is not true.
Glettler was appointed on September 27 and belongs to the charismatic French movement Emmanuel. He made headlines in his former parish-church St. Andrä in Graz when he besmeared a side aisle with red color and called this “art”.
