Yup. Bingo.I prefer belief over non-belief, but religious preference is much less a concern. I will spread the word as it were and give my POV when appropriate to interested parties, but not with the idea of detracting others from their faith or converting anyone.
Of course there's going to be 'when in Rome do as the Romans do." This is ancient and universal wisdom for immigrants?
It sounds to me that people are not too badly oppressed by Christian bullying to convert or conform there in Germany. It is after all one of the most liberal and secular societies on earth. Imo
Do you object to having a broken leg repaired by a doctor with a cross around her/his neck on a chain?
Not at all. I object to the collusion of religion and state, which led to the situation where religious organisations are preferred healthcare providers.
If you want to work in healthcare or social institutions here, you have to tread lightly if you are not Christian. People get fired for not sharing the religious views of their state-sponsored religious employers, for example, leaving the (state) Church when employed as a social worker or kindergarten teacher can be a firing offense. Which would be fine by me (if you are going to work for a religious institution, they can reasonably expect you to be part of their religion), except that the Churches have a quasi-monopoly on these job markets, due to their state sponsorship.
I think that sucks, and it is way beyond the spirit of "when in Rome, do as the Romans".
