Secular state must monitor mosques says German parliamentarian

Sermons delivered in some mosques in Germany did not conform with Germany’s secular state precepts, said Kauder who heads the conservatives’ parliamentary group in Germany’s lower house of parliament, the Bundestag.

Germany was constituted as a secular state in which religion did not stand above the state, but rather the state over religion, Kauder told the Berliner Zeitung newspaper on Friday.

All must comply with this precept, said Kauder, while claiming that in some mosques within Germany sermons were held that did not conform with the modern understanding of statehood.

“There is a need for the state to act,” Kauder said. “There must be supervision.”

Too late thanks to Merkel.

    Make it difficult for them to practice their religion and they may leave the country.

  • These guys aren’t getting it.

    There should be no one monitoring what is said in houses of worship.

    If one must be monitored for security reasons, then having a make-work monitoring project is not the way to go.

    Kick the buggers out!

      This is the only solution.

      • Otherwise, there will be laws, restrictions, ect.

        It’s absurd.

    This is just pushing the turkish system with a thin coat of paint.

    And everyone can see how well that turned out once the backwoods idiot muslims moved to the cities, got erdogan plus welfare, and then outbred / outvoted the intelligent semi secular turkish long term city dwellers.

    Mosques exist to aid and abet muslim-supremacism in a sharia governed totalitarian state. They don’t simply need to be monitored, they need to be abolished.

    It seems they will never get it be it wilfully or through ignorance. Islam can never co-exist with secularism, nor can it co-exist with other belief systems or religions.

    Monitoring is a start, then bull dozing should be the finish.
