The latest animal culling at Copenhagen Zoo has illustrated once again that there is something really messed up in this world. I find it unfathomable that people can allow themselves to get so worked up about the downfall of five animals in a zoo in Denmark. Meanwhile, millions upon millions of human beings are living … Continue reading Christian Values | Ignorance kills animals, not zoos
Christian Wenande´s Danish/American background caters well to a city brimming with cultural diversity and strife. The CPH Post journalist loves life in Copenhagen but yearns for the indomitable mountains, rolling prairie and starry nights of his Wyoming sanctuary.
I’m writing this column in direct response to some comments that emanated, like stench from raw sewage, from a story appearing our story last week about Danish soldiers obtaining compensation for suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) six months after returning from conflict. The said comments suggested that the soldiers returning home complaining of PTSD … Continue reading Christian Values | PTSD: The silent casualty of war
When international transparency watchdogs level criticism at someone in the European theatre, they usually do so in the general direction of eastern Europe.

While rape and pillaging may have not returned into favour, the brutish behaviour of Danes abroad seems to be very much back in style. The Vikings have indeed returned! Late last … Continue reading Christian Values | The Vikings have returned … unfortunately
I met an old friend the other day and we shared an intense emotional moment. We hadn’t seen each other since August, and as we met once again we embraced, looked at each other and nodded to one another knowingly. We had experienced hardship, he and I, and shared that sort of unmistakable bond that … Continue reading Christian Values | We survived another winter … I think
I read a story last week about a man who went amok at banks in several Jutland towns, smashing up the windows. I imagined the Charles Bronson character, from one of his many ‘Death Wish’ vigilante movies, strutting about with a sledgehammer, brutalising bank windows before uttering one-liners such as “Stick that in your vault”, … Continue reading Christian Values | Time to make a permanent withdrawal
Hope you all enjoyed a Merry Christmas, had a cracking New Year’s Eve and are in store for a 2013 that will bring you all the happiness that you deserve. Now that the gluttony and schnapps-fuelled hangover has at last dissipated (I swear I’ll move to Saudi Arabia if I get one more whiff of … Continue reading Christian Values | Time to earn your foreigners, Denmark
While strutting about the other day, displaying my feeble attempt at sporting a Movember ‘stache, I met up with engineer Jørgen Rossen and the Danish ambassador to France, Anne Dorte Riggelsen, and was pleased to hear about their ambitious plans to establish a new international student city in Amager . While the initiative is still … Continue reading Christian Values | International student city another step in the right direction
Scandinavia’s crown jewel of the skies recently announced a nearly nine percent passenger increase for the month of September, a formidable accomplishment given the financial woes endured by many other Danish stalwarts these days. But only days later, SAS declared that, in future, beverages – aside from water, tea and coffee – would cost money … Continue reading Christian Values | Relax, we’ll squeeze you for your dime
I would like to placate you (or infuriate you, depending on your denomination), from the off that despite its name, the column won’t be catering to the religious, pious or sectarian. Unless, that is, your spiritual healing resides within the realm of football, spicy food and enjoying life in general. As part of the international … Continue reading Christian Values | I’m not afraid to say it: I love Copenhagen
