particular case it's a freedom that they have no need for themselves.
Are you serious? It has nothing to do with fear, jealousy and prejudice. Honestly Proto I am really disappointed in you. Surely you can see past the
MSM bull and actually understand the implications here. It has nothing to do with a government telling you how you can dress, that is only a side
effect. It has everything to do with a government trying to stop a bad practice, one which has subjugated women.
I can only "facepalm" and wonder if you didn't have your morning coffee.
Edit - The only thing I can add is an English expression, damned if you do, damned if you don't.

It is neither here nor there whether it's a bad practice, and when it comes to how people practice religion the assumption is that woman don't want to
take that Mikva Bath, or get on at the back of the bus like many Jewish Women do, or to wear a bonnet and stay at home all day like many Amish women
do, yet the truth is that many of these women do in fact want to do these things because they see it as a way not to please their man, but as a way to
please their version of God and earn that ticket to heaven.
Would I want to wear a burka or take a bath in milk after my monthly menstural cycle?
I can't honestly say because I am not a Muslim or Jewish woman of faith.
Neither are you, so are they being repressed or are you trying to repress them from practicing their religion freely simply because you believe it to
Regardless this is how the new world order is arriving, angry, scared, and reactionary people supporting the government in freedom robbing intrusions
Which the government is only bound to continue to expand and abuse that authority once given or permitted as it always does.
How does freedom die? To Thunderdous Applause!
By people making feel good excuses for it, imagining they have won something.
Bottom line if a Jewish Woman wants to take a Mikva Bath or get on the back of a segregated bus in Jerusalem that's their business not mine.
If a Muslim woman wants to wear a burka that's their business not mine.
If a Amish woman wants to wear a floor length modest dress and a bonnet and an apron and stay home and watch the kids and cook all day that's their
business not mine.
Not only are they not hurting me in doing that, the only way I can make it my business and get what I want on 'rare' occassion is by making it the
government's business and giving them that power.
If they will use that power to rob freedom and decide what's repressive through repressive laws no less on one segment of society then yes once the
precedent is established they will use it on others.
It's pretty simple, the New World Order is about trying to get a majority to live a certain way and then playing on their fears to allow the state to
force everyone else to live that way too.
How do they do that, with hot button issues like this and you know as well as I do that many people who will support will support it for all the wrong
