Swiss (Don't) Miss Mormons

http://www.swissinfo.ch/eng/swiss_news/New_legislation_creates_dilemma_for_Mormons.html?cid=29037044

New legislation in Switzerland is going to dramatically cut back the number of Mormon missionaries allowed into the country. The Mormons are crying foul and the Swiss government is claiming it's all part of new rules regarding limits on the number of foreigners it allows in and that Mormons aren't specifically being targeted.

Frankly, after reading this I'm of the mind that this is really poorly defined legislation more than discrimination. But with that said I can see how the Mormons would look at this and smell something fishy. Switzerland got some real flak over Islam there recently so I'd think they'd want to avoid a repeat of that.
