Liberalität ist anstengend

In the April 3, 2010 issue of Der Spiegel there was an article interviewing Bundesverfassungsrichter Di Fabio about the increasing controversy about freedom of religion within Germany concerning the Muslim communities.  He claims that the modern concerns about religion, and the increasing involvement of the more secular communities within this debate, stem from the prominence of devout Muslim communities that cannot be overlooked because they are distinctly nonsecular and therefore remind us of our own religious identity that may otherwise have been forgotten.  Di Fabio remains adamant about everyone’s right to religion but also considers that, as the title of the article suggests, liberalism and acceptance is difficult to achieve universally and a prominent religious minority is by many challenging to accept and acknowledge.
