    I think it's okay.

    They've banned religoius dressing in schools and again I think that's a good idea. Different religions only cause seperation and conflict when mixed together.

    But I think it's fine to act religious privately.

    One would think that people from different religions and cultures should be able to study peacefully, irrelevant of religious symbols that they might be wearing.

    Religious symbols may also be an integral part of a person religion and may mean a lot to them while it barely effects other people

    Do you also mean wearing religous head garments?

    Banning paraphernalia to express religious enthusiasm, such as a cross or a star of David hung from the neck via a chain, seems to be a good idea. As an atheist I can see why some people could see this as provocative. However, banning religious items of clothing that people feel it is necessary to wear to follow their religion correctly, such as the various forms of head-dress, is just narrow-minded and unfair.

    You would think so but you and I know this isn't true. If a few people at schools I know of came dressed in the traditional muslim dress they would get 'paki' and comments like that shouted at them everyday. And I'm sure this is the same for the people who don't wear the same religious clothes as the majority of people. That's not to say don't wear what you want but when you wear it for religious purposes only it causes problems.

    I appreciate that religious symbols may mean a lot to someone but for their own safety and socially they will be better off not expressing this is public places.

    Maybe so, but should we deny them their personal liberties because of this?

    But we aren't really are we? I'm not saying no to religions just that it's in the interest of everyone to keep religion a more private thing.

    don't you think the that internet censorhip and such like, are more of an infringement on personal liberties?

    Why? It's congruent to asking a homosexual to keep their sexuality to themselves, or for a football supporter not to wear their team shirt!

    No. They have little relevance to real life.

    ...and it's not the point.

    Well i'm not that proud some very bad things have happend at the school in the past.

    My school was founded in St Omer, France back in the day, its just a nmae of the house I was in. I just find it amusing because St Omer is French.
