    You're simply a contrarian, that's all.

    Is China ahead of the curve here? Breaking new ground? Or setting themselves up for more hatred and attacks?

    Would you support burqa bans in your country?
    Hell no.

    As much as I hate Islam, whenever I go out to walk on the boardwalk with my mom and I see the muslim family with the women absolutely 100% veiled head to toe (they must be hardcore I think to myself) I simply do nothing but respect their right to do that. Rights are important, a hell of a lot more important than anything we say.

    So... Never, never ever never ever.

    You forgot to mention that the IRA are secular nationalists whose politics tend towards socialism. Are you sure the catholic church backs them. Can you post a source?

    China's problem with terrorism has far less to do with the innate threat posed by Islamic radicalism and far more to do with the way it tries to viciously suppress the identity of its Muslim population.

    I mean really? Commies?
    Friendly diplomacy? Trade? Sure, no problem. Adopting their styke of government or standards or laws? No. China doing something is no excuse for us to do that same thing. Communist states are even more Anti-freedom than the Republocrats, emulating China is not a good idea. Emulating any communist state is not a good idea.

    What has been vicious is the murder of Christians, Jews and those who dare criticize Islam. We can also look to any Muslim dominated country for numerous forms of repression, which are certainly not restricted to items of clothing. You want a source of the world's problems today, look to Islam.

    The Chinese government is correct.

    No not really; the Catholic Church still enjoys being called a pillar of morality despite the fact the Vatican actively tried to sweep the massive amount of Pedophilia committed by their Priests under the rug. Not that the Catholic Church has had anyone form Terrorist groups or-- oh wait, the Real Irish Republican Army is a thing and they fire bomb innocent people. Quick, ban crosses!




    You can't just reel in Extremism, it's just not possible. ISIS, Al Qaeda, Hamas, Boko Haram, and the Taliban originated from places of great strife and war. Ever since Childhood all they've ever known is war, death, and that through their Religious beliefs and war they can prevent all of that. Your nearby Mosque in America has nothing in common with a group like ISIS. The Mosque nearest my home has never been firebombed, or hit with air strikes, it's never had to give away their children to become soldiers. They might have the same religious belief, but as far as the Taliban or ISIS is concerned, their is nothing the American Mosque or Muslim community could say to end their hatred and their violence.
    Since when has there ever been a right to express yourself in China?

    That's quite right. And they are not banning the religion, just the burkas.

    Adding to your point of Muslim societies being oppressive, it strikes me as funny that when a ban like this goes into effect, Muslims cry they don't want to be oppressed.
