MP: Avoid “Mosque vs. Christian Church” Competition

17.06.2011

Monika Grütters, a CDU-member of the German Parliament, called Muslims in Germany to consider the social climate more strongly and respect the feelings of the majority, rather than encouraging a competition between mosques and Christian churches. Following Grütters, this is especially important in light of the problems Christian communities currently have to deal with – such as an increasing secularising trend. To foster good relations amongst the different faith communities, competitive attitudes have to be discarded.
