"The Republic of Austria is still very closely attached, is trying to serve religion and churches without any apparent need," Alm said. "And that's just another thing I pointed out... that something is going wrong here that there is a part of the population that can exert certain special rights that people like me, that atheist people or non-believers cannot have."
Alm says he is an atheist. He was baptized Roman Catholic but he was never a believer...
He claims to be an advocate "for the clean separation of church and state" — and wants freedom from religion.
"There shouldn't be any special rights for anybody because of their religious belief or non-belief," he said.
