Are Danish Lutherans Christian?

وَمَنْ هُوَ الْكَذَّابُ؟ إِنَّهُ الَّذِي يُنْكِرُ أَنَّ
يَسُوعَ هُوَ الْمَسِيحُ حَقّاً. إِنَّهُ ضِدٌّ لِلْمَسِيحِ يُنْكِرُ الآبَ وَالابْنَ مَعا

Zaman:

A delegation of bishops and religious men from the Danish Lutheran Church made contacts in Egypt following the worldwide uproar against the offending cartoons of Prophet Mohammed published in a Danish newspaper....

Steen Skovsgaard, a bishop in the delegation, told Zaman that the cartoons are entirely for provocation. Skovsgard, stressing Muslims and Christians live together in peace, said Danes separated after the events and the majority disapproved the cartoons. He said the freedom of speech did not include humiliation and insult and Muslims can seek remedy through the courts as Denmark is a state of law. Skovsgard, underlining that the crisis is the beginning of a new dialogue rather than a partition, said their tickets were bought by the Danish Foreign Ministry though it was not an official visit.

UPDATE: Sweden too? I mean, you'd expect this from the Saudis, but not the Swedes.

Pssst: the above Arabic is translated as: Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

I'm not exactly a Christian myself (in the traditional sense), but shouldn't Christians be assaulting Muhammed for denying that Jesus was the Messiah?
