Sure you are banning a style of clothing, demanding that people cover parts of themselves because you consider it to be obscene.

I don't support any barbaric religious practices, but you seem very biased to allow barbaric Muslim practices, but have no problem with banning barbaric Christian practices, or other barbaric religious practices.

You have the right to speak your mind, but you don't have the right to dictate to people what they should tolerate.

You are wrong, and you are the one being the hypocrite.

You mean I can't go around concealing my identity at an event where the President of the US is?

Duh....

It isn't about freedoms, religious expressions, etc. It's a simply matter of SECURITY....and when the security of the President and religious dress freedom clashes, I'm fairly certain the Secret Service are going to side with the POTUS on this one....

I don't think the issue is really about freedoms and religious expression but rather some woman dressed in black and with a head scarf being ejected because security thought see is a Muslim.

The woman posed no threat, she was not wearing a "burkha" as falsely reported and she is not a Muslim.

She was wearing black and carrying medals and insignias. I think she loved one of a dead soldier and security over reacted.

That's society. See, we as human beings civilized ourselves, and collectively came together and decided that certain parts of the body should be covered. Now, depending on the society you live in, more or less covering is required. It's not me, it's society, and if you have a problem with society, that's YOUR problem alone.

Not at all, for one thing, I think that nativity scenes should be allowed to be displayed, I have no idea why anyone would take offense to them. I think that crosses should be displayed, I have no problem with those either. I don't have any issue with how Mennonite or Amish people choose to dress. And I don't have any issue with the Burka.


You have the right to speak your mind, but you don't have the right to dictate to people what they should tolerate.


No one says you have to like it. Tolerance and acceptance are two different things. One should be tolerant of other cultures. Doesn't mean YOU have to do the same, doesn't mean that you have to accept that as a part of YOUR life.
