It is the best solution. State and Religion remain seperated.
In Democracy, nobody is free. Everybody is opressed in an equal manner.
So if you let the christians wear their symbols, everyone else will want it too. To avoid problems with that, it is best not to allow anyone.


Since when are headbands considerd to be a religious symbol? I pretty sure I made clear that headbands are more a cultural thing than religious.

"Democracy: Everyone oppressed equally." You are optimistic.

Actually the law allows for discreet markers like a small crucifix or Star of David.

Remember, France's motto is "Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité". In a country where, as in the rest of Europe, there is a small movement advocating send the immigrants back home, the government feels that it needs to implement a rule which:

A) promotes equality by making sure no one is singled out because of his race or religion;
B) upkeeps the principle of the separation of Church and State
