    So should a person be able to enter the White House or the Capital Building in a burka without being searched because they claim to be Muslim?

That includes me and my baseball cap.
    Embracing other cultures and religions comes at a cost and if it is to bend the rules for certain irrational unspoken rules of "respect" then so be it.

    Right.

    I assumed you were joking, but I could never resist a Lady's request.

    Whoa. If that's the same state, which has a religious exclusion for headgear, that's a whole 'nother ball of noodles.

    She's got herself a fat lawsuit, since it was the judge who violated the law, not her, and she was actually incarcerated as a result.

    I don't begrudge a state the ability to make their own laws and apply them to their own public buildings (unless they violate the constitution), but if this state put a religious exclusion... and we know the hajib is indeed religious apparel for a major religion, just like the sihk turben and the Jewish cap, then the judge should have known better.

    To me this just sounds like a guy on a power trip wanting to be a jerk. I'm sure that Muslim women in the past have been able to wear a hijab in court with no problem.
    It was a Judge applying the rules to one person that he would to another. The security protocols are to protect all of the citizens in the building.

    She could have easily been searched and then been allowed to wear it. I'm sure that many Muslim women in the past have worn hijabs in court. Like I said, this guy sounds like he was on a power trip and wanted to be an ass about it.

    An old white southern male on a power trip? No way.
