Hi friends of think atheist,
You definitely have heard of this news last Monday..
France Enforces Ban on Full-Face Veils in Public.
Sorry if this has been discussed before...but It's important to hear the atheists opinion on this matter.
VÉNISSIEUX, France — France on Monday formally banned the wearing of full veils in public places, becoming the first country in Europe to impose restrictions on a form of attire that some Muslims consider a religious obligation.

I'm very interested in hearing people's opinion's on the ban..
So, what do you think?
Don't be so hard on yourself/them. It is not a false dichtonomy to ask: If America, then who?
There is absolutely no evidence that we can have an orderly world without (a) major power/s. There has never (relatively speaking) not been one, and in any event, the scond largest power automatically becomes the new superpower, and if they don't want it it becomes the third largest etc, until you reach the one individual who does seize power.
It's about time Islamic control over women is pushed outside the boundaries of at least one democracy.
France is a pretty cool country now in my book.
Look, in countries where muslim women are veiled, other women are often pressured or eventually FORCED to wear the goddam veil too. Maybew the only way to protect all women from being pressured into wearing this veil of submission is to ban the damn thing.
Otherwise we may end up like come muslim countries where some men BRAG about carrying bottles of acid to throw in the faces of unveiled women.http://www.jihadwatch.org/2006/12/gaza-acid-thrown-in-face-of-woman...
Gaza: acid thrown in face of woman dressed "immodestly"!!
what a horrible crime! I'm very very sad for that :(
