A very simple example: Theologically, Germany is a 100% Christian State because this Democracy features only Christian public holidays. Nobody, neither Jewish or Muslim citizens say anything about that .. Further, every major business has to remain closed on a Sunday. This law embodys the Christianty within this Democracy, every week. Muslims and Jews are recognized as full citizens in Germany but they are forced by law to at least recognize the Christianity of the country. Every week and on special occations, everything is shut down and the only thing you hear are churchbells. So, why should it be an issue for a Muslim or a Christian citizen of Israel, if there would be for example only Jewish public holidays affecting your work schedule and personal free-time ? No, theologically, Israel is way more democratic as for example Germany. Muslim and Christian holidays are also observed by the respective populations and depending on the district, the day of rest (shops closed) falls on Friday (Islam), Saturday (Judaism) or Sunday (Christianity). This kind of theological freedom within a democracy is unthinkable in today's Germany. Here, you can not run a supermarket on a Sunday, even if your fruits go bad and there are people who would love buying them before they have to be thrown away.
