" a nun can be covered from head to toe in order to devote herself to god, right ? "
" but then if a muslim girl does the same , why is she oppressed "

for a start - taking vows as a catholic nun is a VOLUTARY VOCATION , no one forces her into it - and she can abandon the vocation if she chooses
her [ the nuns ] dress code are the rules of her order - not law - as islamic female dress code is in many islamic nations , hint when was the last time to heard reports of a nun being floged for dress code vilouations ?
no catholic order i am aware of demands a veil - as is sometimes demanded of moslem women - and catholic orders do not demand the full habit at all times - " working dress " in many orders demands only that the skirt be below the knee , and permits bare arms and only a token scarf on the head
islamic dress codes tend to demand fully covered ALL the time
yess - i know many islamic women CHOOSE to wear the garb , with no fear of retaliation if they do not
catholic nuns who refuse to adhere to thier orders dress code - find them selves facing expulsion from the order - not flogging
try violating islamic dress code in a country governed by sharia law
thats the difference

2nd cartoon (Nun/Muslim girl) - A nun works for the church, it is her uniform for lack of a better word, whereas all Islamic women are expected to dress as such, plus a nun isn't expected to fully cover her face.
3rd cartoon (Jew/Muslim) - It is only crimes commited in the name of Islam that are put on trial as commited due to their faith, ie honour killings, blowing people up in the name of Allah or
