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?
I must admit I am not a big fan of the descent argument of nationality. I prefer judging a person's nationality/regionality upon which societal characteristics they lean towards. A woman insisting in wearing a niqab in France does not promote the societal values of the social liberal France and is therefore not to be considered 'French' (in a wider sense than country of passport). Likewise, someone who moves to France and learns French, drink wine, eat cheese, hate the British/Germans/Italians/etc, and frequently engages in philosphical debate can be considered French because they have assimilated the culture.
I'm surly happy they could establish a law for banning burkas in public places at last.
I hope all Europe can wake up soon before it's too late. Islamist invaders have a big giant dream of Islamizing the whole world.
