What if it's cold, like really cold.
I'm certainly no fan of the veil, find demeaning to women and intimidating to others even, nor do I care for religion, but I don't think it should be banned. It is likely to cause more tension between the western world and Islamic Fundamentalists, more irrational religious fury directed at us is not necessary especially as the veil doesn't affect us...certainly not to the extent a bomb might
definitely. The French have got something good going.
I wouldn't be adverse to a full ban on the Muslim veil, but at the very least I think it should be recognised that there are some places/jobs where it's not appropriate to wear the veil, or any form of face covering at all (e.g. teaching) - and that this should be respected by all people.
Not really a fan of banning stuff, and don't know how enforceable a ban would be, but I appreciate what France is doing -
It is a statement of intent......they are putting down a marker. France is for the French. Assimilate or leave.
No, they should be able to choose. Years of struggle, etc, etc, yes, but it's not our government's place to make them 'profit from their freedom' by restriktin' their rights. Besides, how many people does this actually affect? In France there was a massive storm about the burkha, and there are actually fewer than 2000 women in the land that wear them, so in effect it was just fuel for Islam extremists/reason for moderates to get riled up and alienated from French society, and an easy excuse for the government to claim they're doin' something about the problem.
Do a search OP, this thread gets done every week and it always goes the same way.
No... Should allowed if the woman wants to wear it. End of.
u want something to be banned that belongs to a religion thats very disrespectful.
