Vicar fired for marrying Muslim finally ordained
by Julie Colthorpe
A vicar who was dismissed from her training in southern Germany for marrying a Muslim man was finally ordained last Sunday.
Carmen Häcker made national headlines in 2011 after she was forced to leave her training course at her church in Baden-Württemberg.
The 31-year-old had always planned to become a vicar and a year before starting her training she spent a year in Bangladesh, where she met and fell in love with Monir Kahn, a Muslim.
