The return of religion presents a challenge to constitutional law as well. The structures of the modern, free constitutional state with extensive religious and ideological freedom for its citizens and religious and ideological state neutrality do appear to be firmly joined. However the question is whether sacral elements have been admitted constitutively into the supposed completely secularized political community or are conceptually, institutionally or functionally inherent in it. This question can clearly be answered in the negative. The free constitutional state can and must administer the return of the religious secularly. The separation of politics and religion is and will continue to be the basis of the political community's freedom.
