German president calls for safeguarding of religious education

.- German President Horst Köhler warned this week about the negative consequences of pushing faith out of society and he exhorted Christian churches "not to renounce the right to religious education," according to the news agency.

Amidst the commemoration of the 450th anniversary of the Augsburg peace, the German president noted that "the Churches should not be forced out of the places in which they have made enormous contributions throughout the centuries" through the carrying out of their mission.

After warning about the dangers and negative social consequences of the "relativization of all values and behaviors," President Köhler exhorted the Churches to not renounce their right to religious education. "It is precisely the young people who are today searching for a renewal of the spiritual dimension, as was clearly shown during World Youth Day Cologne."
