France has passed a law making it illegal to cover one’s face in public (I thought this was already illegal in the US). Anyway, people are praising this law, and using the argument, as in the above link, that burqas supposedly aren’t an official part of Islam because it’s not in the Koran.
The Bible doesn’t require us to wear crucifixes or put crucifixes in our buildings. So, if the government decided to pass a law banning crucifixes, would these same Catholics support it because the Bible doesn’t say anything about crucifixes?
What about religious habits? Are we going to sit back and cheer when aFrance, or the UK, or the US decides to be fair to Muslims by banning any religious garb in public?
