02.06.2011/ 03.06.2011

From June 1st – 5th, Protestant Christians from across Germany came together in Dresden for their biannual convention called “Kirchentag” (“Church Day”). Amongst the topics for discussion at various events throughout the five days were controversial political issues, such as Germany’s abandoning of nuclear power and sexual abuse scandals within the Church. German President Christian Wulff participated in a panel discussion and spoke about the integration of immigrants; he reiterated his view that Islam was now a part of German society, which he had previously stated in his speech on German Reunification Day on October 3rd, 2010.
