    Yes, you feel taking away freedoms from members of a religion is ok. You support fascism, that's good to know.
    I'm glad you finally support prayer in school.

    The will of the people isn't always right.

    It's not surprise that you completely miss the point.

    If the Swiss can do what they want within their borders, why can't North Korea?

    Of course not, that's why the people in the government (who are much smarter than the citizens) need to override the will of the People and build tall churches for Muslims whose church traditions generally emphasize hating the West. The minarets could serve as excellent sniper positions.

    It's a lousy comparison. I mean, honestly. You could do better here.
