German authorities crack down on religious right

For historical reasons German authorities have been pretty tough on censoring Neo-Nazis and violent left-wing extremists. But now it seems they’re turning on the traditional Christian right, which seems pretty over top given that it has no modern history of political violence in Germany (I think the last time German Catholics were violently inclined was way back in the 30 Years War of the 17th Century).

Apparently a German intelligence agency is “investigating” an “ultra-Catholic” website called Kreuz.net. The site apparently contains anonymous comments of a  “homophobic” and “anti-Semitic” nature

Presumably now any kind of “extreme” comment by a German is liable for censorship according to modern German law, even if the person making the comment isn’t bothering others and is no threat to law and order.
