No to Headscarf, Yes to Nun’s Habit

The judgement that allowed the Muslim teacher to wear her headscarf in school in a showcase trial is about to be challenged again. Helmut Rau (CDU), Minister of Culture, Youth and Sport for Baden-W_rttemberg, announced that he will file an appeal against the recent judgement in favour of Doris G. by the Stuttgart Administrative Court. “A nun’s habit”, argues Rau, “is her working clothes, and moreover a permissible expression of Western Christian culture.”
