Germany, the hour of religion? Only with the professors of all faiths
BERLIN - A lesson in religion, where behind the chair can be a muslim, a jew, an evangelical or a catholic. The schools of Hamburg, will welcome the teachers of every creed, which may only teach after having completed a full path, when will then be able to present the different visions of the different themes. It is an experiment launched in agreement with the different religious communities in three different schools of the hanseatic city and already tested at the Kurt Tucholsky Schule in the suburb of Altona. "A wonderful idea for our city that welcomes different cultures," stressed the social-democratic Ties, the Raven, the councillor at the School, and himself a former teacher of religion.

For catholics is a step more difficult than for others, writes the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, because the Church of Rome has always seen teaching as part of the mission. But the school authorities of the Land have made it clear: the lessons of religion can not be the work of proselytizing, but must be a commitment to the education and religious maturity. Hamburg was always at the forefront, in this sense, proposing a single religion for all, with the content being shared, in contrast to the other Lander, in schools where there are up to 13 different addresses. But obviously, in the past, the approach of the gospel has not resulted in embarrassment, so much so that so far, writes the newspaper, virtually no one has used the possibility of avoiding the lessons. At most catholic teachers are oriented towards one of the 21 schools linked to the Church of Rome. The professors, buddhists, jews, muslims and alevi participated in the definition of the programs, but could not directly teach.

The former democratic mayor Ole von Beust had guaranteed the right to religious education is different already from 2012, the possibility was used before by the muslim community, then from the jewish community. But the new model of education does not provide a point of view totally neutral on the teacher's part, but rather the specific responsibility of the religious community to adopt a balanced view. The initiative has garnered positive comments: the approach is less binding, with a tinge of philosophy rather than only the explanation of the dogmas of the faith, is considered a tool of integration and stimulus tolerance.
