Reader comment on item: The Swiss Ban on Minarets: A Possible Turning Point
in response to reader comment: The "rage" comes next

Right on. I lived in Saudi for over seven years. Christianity is reviled, as is Buddhism and Hinduiism, both denounced as idolatry. Churches are not tolerated; foreigners like the many Philippinos worship in secret. Christmas is a non-event.

It's time we stopped the political correctness which is making us serfs to Islam in our own cultures.
