Score one for the Swiss!

November 30, 2009

Woohoo!   I think the Swiss voters got this one right!!  But I am pretty sure the ban will be short lived.

Do you think that Christians would be able to build churches in Islamic countries??  NO.  Christians in fact are NOT allowed to build churches in Islamic countries.  In fact,   Christians are actually PERSECUTED in Islamic countries.  And if you are an Islamic convert to Christianity,  often,  in  many if not all Islamic countries,  DEATH is the penalty.

The spectre of religious and racial intolerance was raised over Switzerland last night as a majority of voters backed a deeply controversial proposal to ban the building of minarets at mosques in a referendum which instilled fear among Muslims and shocked the Swiss government………………………………………..

Most of Switzerland’s established political parties had opposed the ban in the run-up to the poll. In a joint statement they said: “It will be met with incomprehension abroad and damage Switzerland’s reputation.”

    Bravo. As a Swiss I am proud of the Swiss! I guess there are still a few who have common sense?

    As long as Islamic countries do not tolerate Christians and their church towers- let alone Jewish synagogues -, they should not expect to build their Minarets in Christian countries.
