    Fewer and fewer people adhere to organised religion in the western world.
Switzerland is no exception, with a rising number claiming to have no
religious affiliation. But although church attendance is falling, religion has
become a factor ahead of the federal elections, especially with an
increasingly large and more visible Muslim population. swissinfo's special
dossier shows how the churches are adapting to changes in Swiss society.
