Muslim immigrants will petition for a referendum in Switzerland to change the national flag. They argue it is a Christian symbol and the flag should represent the separation between church and state.

Well, the U.S. flag has 13 stripes. Doesn’t this offend the states that joined the original 13 colonies since they are being slighted? Seems we are abandoning the past because of the present.
Then there is the income tax. The Bible says you should give only a tenth. “Tithe” means a tenth or 10%. Isn’t taxing everyone far more than 10% a violation of the First Amendment right of the Freedom of Religion? You cannot practice your religion if the government violates it by creating law. What haven’t the lawyers mounted a class action lawsuit under this position?
