Die Welt (translated):
To Catholic Church the increase of hate crimes against Christians in Germany is frightening. The Archbishop of Bamberg, Ludwig Schick said the “Frankfurter Allgemeine week”, that “the utmost vigilance exercised was”: “Unfortunately, across the company, signs of brutalization.”
There is “radicalization trends among certain groups of Muslims and they also exist in other sectors of the society. This brings dangers for social cohesion and peaceful Coexistence.“
Further, the Archbishop said Schick, that, among the refugees who have come since 2014 from the Middle East to Germany, no doubt some are, “the liberal order of our country do not understand or do not accept, also, came not as refugees, but as terrorists. This is a fact to which we must respond. But it is also true that the majority of those who have escaped war and Chaos, the achievements of our state and our society will appreciate and you want to accept.“
