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.
