Secular, social, democratic?

  • On the Separation of Politics and Religion
  • Lale Akgün & Adrian Gillmann
  • In dialogue

What is actually secular? The Basic Law prohibits both preferential treatment and discrimination against individual citizens or groups. The publication säkular.sozial.demokratisch (2019) aims to clarify everyday violations of this prohibition in the relationship between churches and the state. The secular sozis plead for a stricter separation of religion and politics, but at the same time also for respect and tolerance towards people of other faiths and people without religious ties.

For Lale Akgün and Adrian Gillmann, the challenge is to find political answers to the questions of contemporary religious and ideological pluralism.

In cooperation with the humanists Baden-Württemberg and the secular humanists gbs Rhein Neckar e. V.
