Too much religion?
Do we talk too much about religion? Are we -- the media -- obsessed with reporting religion?
Carol Sarler, an outspoken Times columnist, says she's had enough: "Enough religion. Stop shoving it down my throat."
Her argument is: 97% of people in Britain don't attend religious services on a regular basis and yet we report on gay bishops, faith schools etc.
Do you agree with her? Do you think the media in your country gives too much space to religion?
Ms Sarler goes further: she says there's no room for an honest debate.
That's what the Times columnist writes today: "Good manners today disallow the questioning of a man's belief as sternly as they disallow jokes about it and to offend by either means may be, at least, a sacking offence or, at most, a matter of law."
Should we have a debate about that? Is that something you want to discuss in today's WHYS? Post your comments here on the blog.
Another question: how do you command respect from the people in Afghanistan?
That's what British soldiers have been allowed and encouraged to do.
There's an amazing claim: the presence of bearded British airmen has helped reduced the number of attacks on Kandahar airfield.
What do you think? What will you need to do in your country to get the respect of your pairs -- or your elders?
And I come back to one idea Mark mentioned in a meeting the other day: racism in Switzerland.
I'll quote Mark: "The stereotypical image is of a neutral, peace-loving country which produces nice chocolate "
But there's a bit more to the place than that.
Switzerland has the toughest naturalisations laws in Europe. An official report says those laws need to change.
There seems to be widespread racism. Foreigners make up a significant proportion of the prison population in the country.
That's Switzerland, the home of the Olympic movement, the Red Cross, the United Nations, the land of neutrality.
Are you a Swiss national, are you an immigrant in Switzerland? Have you lived in the country? What do you think? Send us your comments.
