Zollitsch regrets defeat for "Pro Reli"
The chairman of the German Catholic Bishops Conference, Archbishop Robert Zollitsch has regreted the defeat of the Berlin Initiative "Pro Reli". He appealed to the Senate to seek a religious-ideological model of education which seeks "to take the freedom of religion more into account and a broad consensus in society ." This should be done in conjunction with "Pro Reli, the churches and the Jewish community and the Muslim associations . But never before had faith and religion been so explicitly present in the streets and in the debates in the public square, as in the past few months, said Zollitsch.
