27 April 2009 : Berlin, referendum on religious instruction

In Berlin, there is on-going controversy over a popular initiative supported by churches and other religious communities, to introduce religious instruction in public schools according to Article 7 of the Basic Law (Grundgesetz) as a full alternative to an ethics curriculum which is currently obligatory for all pupils.
The initiative has succeeded in finding enough support to force the Berlin Senate to organize a referendum which took place on April 27.

For further information on this initiative, see the website of the "Pro-Reli" Association.
