    Yet it is still an example of banning the cross.

    Now how about someone address zoning laws.

    I'm sorry if my example was too specific.....

    Apparently it can in switzerland.

    So you have no problem at all with Muslim oppression and brutality, as long as they keep it in their own countries. Okay.
    Oppression and brutality as defined by....whom? You? Me? We don't have that right.


    But if 51% of Americans voted against minarets - or to ban Islam, or Christianity - or to make you a slave - that's okay? Will of the people after all.
    I believe both of those examples would constitute a violation of our constitution.

    Naturally. When we needed the soviets they were our valued and trusted allies. After the war we no longer needed them and they became the hated commies.

    The leaders of nations are responsible for the security and well being of the nations they lead. Trying to use interpersonal mores as an example of how nations should behave is incredibly naive.

    Apparently they are also quite pragmatic.
