  •  The character of the campaign (8+ / 0-)

    See the campaign poster to see what the character of the anti-minaret law is.

    This is a law designed to stir up xenophobia and fear in the population. This is a situation which always diminishes the rights of the people targeted.

    Religious freedom is not just the ability to practice your religion. Religious freedom is also the ability to participate fully in society at the same time you practice your religion.

    The law isn't really about minarets. It's about stirring up hatred and sending a message to the Muslims in Switzerland.
