A distinction has always to be made between territorial areas, social classes, age differences and other socio-anthropological categories when speaking of religious phenomena. One cannot generalize. And on the other side, more than of a «return» of the sacred it is better to speak of a «permanence of the sacred». A specific kind of problems is related to the so-called new religious movements. A «regularization» of their activities, sometimes requested, appears as a control or an assimilation according to the view of reducing the different to the identical. At the same time it is not possible to suspend juridical regulations with respect to groups of citizens only in the name of religion.
