(DICI) In Germany, de-Christianization is coming about through architecture, according to the Catholic news website Kreuz.net quoted by the Italian newsletter European Correspondence dated August 31, 2012. We are told that there is no longer room for churches in the new districts of German cities. They are no longer planned for or designed, as if they had been excluded from the cities. An article by journalist Dankwart Guratzsch, in Die Welt, gives concrete examples: in Stuttgart, a district with 12,000 inhabitants was built without a church; in Hamburg, a new locale of 12,000 people is also without a church; moreover 19 churches were closed, probably because they were an obstacle to the realization of the new plan for urban development. Suddenly, churches have disappeared under the pretext that there was no demand for them.
