And also a lot of Muslims are no more religious then the average Swede. For them it's natural that human rights come first.
Cultural variety is always worth striving for, but must never precede the declaration of human rights.
I believe that religion should be totally separated from the state. That's not the way it is today, not even in Sweden.
I'm so incredibly tired of giving respect to a lot of delusions and crazy ideas just because they are regarded as religions.
The story of Jesus is very fascinating. It still has such a tremendous power, even after 2,000 years! We don't really know if he existed as a historical figure.
The UN declaration on human rights must always be first in line before religion or other cultural habits, in case of any conflict between them.
There is a very vibrant cultural scene in Stockholm. There are lots of places where there are concerts, and there are loads of museums and theaters.
Every time I sit in the audience and watch a show that I have been involved with, it is such an amazing feeling to see all those people around me, knowing they are actually watching and enjoying something I have written.
Well mostly in song writing my experience is that there isn't so much inspiration as hard work. You sit there for hours, days and weeks with a guitar and piano until something good comes.
There are days when I walk through the center of Stockholm when I get this sudden feeling of happiness - a sense of belonging and at the same time gratitude that I'm so privileged that I can live my life in my city.
Stockholm is unique in that it's built on islands and surrounded by water, so you get this enormous sense of freedom. It's got everything you could possibly need - everything New York or London has but without all the people and traffic. It's also become a very creative city, not only for music but also for fashion and computer games.
