CWN Editor's Note: “A clear line must be drawn against right-wing extremists,” the Freising Bishops’ Conference said after the AfD party (Alternative für Deutschland, or Alternative for Germany) finished in third place in the Bavarian state election, with over 2 million votes (out of 9.2 million votes cast).

The bishops added, “It is unacceptable for Christians to vote for parties that spread nationalist, racist, or anti-Semitic opinions, or tolerate them in their ranks.”
