Swiss Religion

Hmmm. I was quite surprised when i read my 12 year old cousin class contact list. It lists all the students, their parent(s), home address, phone number and religion… yes, religion. I had to look twice. Some are Catholic, some are Reformed, others are non-confirmed (as in not belonging to a church) and there are Muslim too. ‘What is your religion?’ was the next question they asked me at the Gemeinde after ‘What is your name?’ when I first arrived in Switzerland.

I guess it shouldn’t really be a shock because the Swiss seem very open about religion and most belong to a state run church and pay tax to it. But I am a New Zealander, where religion is something you don’t talk about and it is an optional box you fill out on the census paper. Some more info here

Personally, I reckon it is pretty cool being able to talk about religious beliefs openly, etc.; something I miss in NZ.

Anyway, we have been doing a lot of tripping and traveling around. Like to Jungfraujoch, Grindelwald, Bern, Luzern. Will post some photos soon.
