Bavaria grants Jews full civil rights. Equality for Jews has been vociferously opposed by most popes, including those who have otherwise eased various restrictions on Jews. This is because treating Jews as civil and political equals implies that Judaism is the equal of Catholic Christianity.

This, however, would contradict the traditional Christian doctrine that Christianity superseded Judaism and that therefore Judaism is no longer an entirely valid religion. It may have been valid at one time, but today Jews are obliged to convert to Christianity.
