    So, in some European countries governments are lining up to ban the wearing of the burka and face veil in public. At the other extreme, we now have some muslim schools in Britain forcing girls to wear the burka and face veil as part of the school uniform.

    Seems moderate muslims, the majority, are against this, so let’s see what a leading imam has to say about it:

    On balance, banning the burka and niquab would seem the right way to go. They are not part and parcel of religious belief but are nothing more than tribal customs.

    OOPs.

    (wrong codecs... my bad)

    Errr, aHEM!

    "Religious" semi/totally PRIVATE schools?

    Funny how Christian schools are expected to support themselves, with a MINIMUM of Fed monies,

    and yet, there ARE other religions that are accorded ...

    PREFERENCE .

    That is neither fair, nor right,

    and it shouldn't be allowed.

    I'm getting to the end of my days, and i want so badly to SAY something to you,

    to make you LOOK, and see, even beyond the two sides of any coin you could be shown,

    because there's a Coin MAKER that almost is the the Ultimate Ruler.

    The Universal School in Chicago forces the older girls to wear a hijab as well but it doesn't mention anything about covering the face. I wonder if the teachers have a different dress code.

    ¿i¿WTF?!?

    "The MODEL School"? Well, for the nation of islam, perhaps...

    Cripes.

    I've said this before, but

    WE FOUGHT WARS over our ALLIES being invaded by insidious ideologies,

    and yet we ~

    and by WE? I mean ANYONE with two brain cells to rub together ~

    should just sit on our fat asses and WATCH as it HAPPENS,

    NOW?!?

    I don't think so. (and you sort of have to hear that in a Texican voice ~ it's a bass-y semi-monotone, that conveys <not MALICE, but like that>

    OH! "Don't Tread On Me!" THAT!

    Or like the commercial for Pace's Picante sauce: Git a rope.

    :lol: :rofl: :lol:
