In November 2009, the people of Switzerland were asked to take a public referendum against the building of minarets in Switzerland. In contrast to the expectations of most people the referendum was accepted. Big question marks followed: What does that mean? Is Switzerland xenophobic? Is Switzerland islamophobic? Why did people vote for the referendum?
To shed some light on such questions a survey was conducted after the referendum. Such surveys are common in Switzerland since 1977. They are called „VOX analysis“. And the recent survey revealed a very interesting finding: The majority of the Swiss Christians voted for the referendum even though the officials from the protestant and catholic churches supported voting against the referendum. The majority of the non-religious people in turn voted against the referendum.
Does this mean that non-religious people are better Christians?

I wouldn’t say that non-religious people are better Christians. Maybe many of them are better fellow citizens because they are more tolerant.
Bill, you think they are more tolerant because the majority of them rejected the referendum? um, maybe.
