I don't know about German legal tradition, but either in the preliminary legislative workings or in precedence their is an answer. Which is probably 'No'.

It is fun to twist legalese, but it has its own system to tackle the ambiguities of language. I don't think this text is that had to parse, if you do enough stuff to mock, humiliate or somesuch the church (synagogue, mosque, party HQ (see the last bit)) you are in, you can be found guilty.

" party HQ (see the last bit))"

LOL. No, that's a translation issue. That means a ceremony of a non-religious association. Jugendweihe instead of confirmation and so.

I see.

I think it is a smart clause anyway, it gets around defining religion. After all it was the fact that Swedish law had a way to register a religion (and nothing but a religion) that allowed the Missionary Church of Kopimism to register as a religion (after a couple of attempts).
