(Reuters) - It's
rare to be invited to an event five years off and even rarer to bicker
about its details, but Germany's Catholic Church finds itself in that
delicate situation thanks to an overture from its Protestant neighbors.
German Protestants are planning
jubilee celebrations in 2017 to mark the 500th anniversary of Martin
Luther's launching of the Reformation, a major event in the history of
Christianity, of Europe and of the German nation, language and culture.
