Download E-books Rückkehr der Religion in den öffentlichen Raum?: Kirche und Religion in der deutschen Tagespresse von 1993 bis 2009 (German Edition) PDF

Anna-Maria Schielicke beschäftigt sich mit der Frage, ob von einer Rückkehr der faith in den öffentlichen Raum gesprochen werden kann. Der Frage liegt die Annahme zugrunde, dass faith zunächst verschwunden warfare, gegenwärtig aber aufgrund bestimmter Ereignisse und öffentlich verhandelter Themen (etwa Terrorismus oder Gentechnik) wieder an Bedeutung gewinnt. Dabei kommt sie bei der Untersuchung deutscher Leitmedien anhand der quantitativen Inhaltsanalyse zu dem Ergebnis, dass ein gewisses Grundrauschen von Religionsberichterstattung zeitlich unabhängig erscheint und dass statt von einer Rückkehr eher von einem Bedeutungszuwachs von faith gesprochen werden kann: Die Verbindung von Politik, Staat und Kirche ist in Deutschland nie ganz aufgelöst worden. In vielen Bereichen conflict und ist der Staat auf Leistungen der faith und der Kirchen angewiesen. Diese beschränken sich nicht nur auf die besonders sichtbaren Sozialleistungen. faith ist auch eine für die Gesellschaft unverzichtbare Werte-, Integrations- und Mobilisierungsgrundlage.
