Norway's 2nd largest party wants all supported religious services only in Norwegian

  1. Dec 14, 2006 #1
    Norwegian only
    It seems to me an unsolicited, unlawful proposal. Could some European be overreacting?

    What do you mean by 'some European'? It's about Norwegians.

    Yes, in general, it's a pretty itchy issue which is in direct conflict with freedom of speech. Although, it's definitely nothing surprising, if you look at the party's political program and orientation.

    The Party of Progress is a party for (non-muslim) taxi drivers and village idiots.
    Unfortunately, this seems to comprise about 25% of the population.

    I wrote "some Europeans" because the problems that have preceded this knee-jerk are shared by most European countries, especially the Netherlands, France and Germany, which seem to be handling the situation quite well. I did not intend to make it sound as though I'm criticizing Europeans, but rather to try and understand why this is happening in Norway.

    That seems to be a global problem.

    So, the conclusion is - get rid of all the (non muslim) taxi drivers and village idiots in Norway first, and then all around the world? :biggrin:

    Well, you know what you got to do, in that case:

    a) move to Norway,
    b) form a political party,
    c) make everyone vote for you.

    :tongue2: :rofl:

    Not really. Most taxi drivers in Norway are Muslims, you see. :smile:

    Are you, by any chance, Norwegian? (Since you're so well informed.) :wink:

    Sounds as a yes. Ok, obviously you know very well what you're talking about in that case. :smile:
