Go Swiss!

Sometimes you have to hand it to the Swiss. Not too long ago, my husband sent me this video about their gun policy and why they have such a low crime rate.

Then today I read an interesting article by American Vision about a new Swiss ban on minarets being added to mosques. Here are a few snips from the article.

In a referendum, 57 percent of the voters and 22 out of 26 cantons voted in favor of a ban on building minarets to the mosques in the nation.

The Swiss did not ban the minarets just because they didn’t like them, or because they would go “against the traditions.” On the contrary, the referendum went under the definite statement that “Islam is a religion of intolerance and dictatorship.”

Our liberty and prosperity are based on our Christian religion, and they are a package deal. You can’t have the fruits without the roots. If you want the roots of a different religion, go back where you have the fruits of it as well.
