Church fights AfD for Muslim right to build new mosque

Outside of Berlin there are only two mosques in the whole of the former East Germany. The populist Alternative for Germany (AfD) are trying to scupper plans for a new one in Erfurt, state capital of Thuringia.

The AfD hope to block the new build by means of a referendum and have put a proposal to this effect in from of the state parliament in Thuringia, public broadcaster MDR reports.

The populist party, who have seen their popularity soar during the refugee crisis, have also called a protest in the central square of state capital Erfurt using the slogan “our land, our culture, our decision.”

I wonder why so few Germans attend church nowadays….

    There is absolutely no need for them to build a new mosque, just convert that church to make it officially what it seems already to be.

    It’s sad to see so many churches that were once pillars of civilization completely taken over by traitors.
