The personal information form I have to fill out for the FAZ doesn’t ask me about my race. It doesn’t ask me about my gender or ethnicity. But it does ask me about my religion. The three options are:
-römisch-katholisch (Roman Catholic)
Considering on the one hand that a poll by Der Spiegel found that only 45% of Germans believe in God and quarter in Jesus Christ, and on the other hand that 5% of the population (and growing) is Muslim, not to mention that, you know, historic marginalization of Jews, I’m a little surprised.
Oh, and I left it blank.
