Of course Margie, you'd like Ha'aretz to find a different subject because you'd rather sweep this one under the rug. If it were Jews on the other hand as second-class citizens of a country, you'd want it on the front page! If we want, we can define Italy as a Christian state, but it still remains a state of all its citizens. American Christians do not have automatic rights to become Italian citizens just because they're Christian. That in itself would give more rights to people who are not citizens of a state based on being Christian than those people who are Italian citizens and are not Christians. I don't doubt a Jew not being an equal citizen in the USA as an example would bring cries of "anti-semitism."
