Bavaria drafts crucifix law

Bavaria drafts crucifix law

Munich - In apparent defiance of Germany's constitutional court, the Bavarian government has drafted a law permitting crucifixes to be displayed in public schools, the Bavarian chancellory announced yesterday. On 10 August Germany's highest court ruled that a decree ordering the display of crucifixes in the classrooms of primary schools was unconstitutional. The Bavarian government has said that it hopes the new statute, which was first outlined on 12 September, will go into effect this year. AFP
