    The Chinese government is correct.
    You bring up a good point. Look at the majority of countries where the Muslim ideology dominates the government and laws, and consider how oppressive and outright hateful those places are.

    Muslim dominated countries are some of the most archaic and barbaric places on Earth.

    Why should the free world cower to the thought of possibly offending muslims by restricting some of their "traditions", when those same muslims in their home countries wouldn't think twice about killing somebody with a different opinion?

    Apparently this 'oppression' only moves in one direction.

    Theocracy is bad, this is known. The Christian theocracies of days last were no better. But the West eventually moved towards secular government and freedom of religion. And that's where we sit. I'm not going to sell out our roots and beliefs because some folk are afraid of a burka.

    That's an argument many people prefer to avoid, though it's logic is unquestionable.

    YES! If you've gone to the ME, you will realize that same notion first hand.

    I think the burqa thing is more of a symbolic thing than a tangible thing.

    Just like the support for Charlie Hebdo. Nobody really f'n cares about the cartoons themselves, what they care about is the rights for people to do something non-violent and not get killed for it.

    I think these things are kind of saying "we're not going to allow your beliefs to bully us into submission" and in some respects, "now you've pushed too far and we're going to start pushing back".

    A Catholic drawing a picture of Muhammed should not incite a Muslim to violence any more than a Muslim eating fish on Friday should incite a Catholic.

    All things considered, I think the majority of the world is getting sick of tip-toeing around the Muslim ideology. So in some places they are taking action.

    The burqa ban may indeed work against the Chinese in that it may bring MORE violence to the region. We'll have to sit back and watch.

    It's not quite back to Christian, just Pointing out that theocracy in general is bad and produces bad things. Of course Islamic theocracies are going to be bad and horrible places. Theocracies are bad and horrible places.

    Sad that needs explanation.

    I doubt the Cghinese will be as acceptive of Islamic violence as the West.

    I am never made the claim the Catholic Church backed or ever supported the IRA. However it is a fact that for a long time the Irish Republican Army were Christian extremists. Are you claiming this is not the case?
