    It seems a bit harsh but it wont kill you to stop wearing a scarf.

    A group of people have obviously researched this and you would hope that these elected members are reasonably responsible. There must be positive reasons for why they want this even if it seems to be an abuse of peoples' beliefs on the surface.

    It wouldn't kill people to not go to church but no one in their right mind would ban that

    LOL @ your cynicism

    There's never one side to an arguement especially when dealing with an elected body of people. Maybe they have a distorted frame of reference but they will have a justifyable point. I will read this again when I have more time and provide a more informed arguement.

    i couldn't be botherered to look at the link but is this about the new laws in France. If so i think its a terrible infringement of someones civil liberties to be banned from wearing a head scarf if it's oart of their religion.

    yep theres lots of problems in France because the school system is meant to be secular.

    seems quite stupid to me, personally - as long as the teacher doesnt try to actively convert students, i guess...

    Why don't you explain points instead of cynically criticising others? What makes you think that you're so above everyone else?

    Its really easy to say something is stupid but there must have been a case study or something along those lines performed.

    How scared are we all of terrorists these days? I think things like this give us an answer to that.

    The only thing I object to is that "Christian and Jewish symbols are not included in the ban", which seems a bit unfair. Apparently it's to protect students from a "fundamentalist influence"; how they can justify that is beyond me.

    Apologees if you thought I consider people with scarfs terrorists. Thats sounds very wrong!! I withdraw that comment entirely.

    well, why not?

    just because they're religious doesnt mean they're trying to convert you. in fact it probably has little / nothing to do with what youre learning about.

    would you object to being served in a shop / restaurant by someone wearing a headscarf ? or a cross?

    i know it's headscarf

    anyway, i dont think most of the terrorists are muslims cos they dont act like one........................ personally i think G.W.Bush can be defined as a terrorist, he killed many innocent ppl in afghanistan and iraq....... for the "good" of the ppl
