    You fail to come up with a logical reasoning.

    If you are saying they are encroaching because their religion says they have to then you have to say EQUALLY that a Christain that can't eat meat on Good Friday because of their religion is encroaching on society.

    Tell me, do you feel women should be FORCED to wear bikinis because you can't see all their body? If not, why do you dictate what they can and can't wear?

    YOU are in fact encroaching ON THEIR beliefs when you have no reason to do so.

    Fine, make it so they can't wear it in a federal building, but that has NOTHING to do with what they wear in public.
    I,m not going to start a History lesson in customs, beliefs of middle eastern or Muslim women. But once again believe choice has little relevance.

    Let me get this straight. If a good Catholic REFUSES to eat a cheeseburger in front of you because he gave up Burger King for Lent, this impacts society?

    So you have no logic and you just hate Muslims and want to impose your personal will on them just for spite, got it.

    Where in France is this hotbed of Islamic repression? Are French muslim men running around stapling burqas to their womens' heads?

    NO. this infringement will bare into insignificance, because who will notice?

    The last time i looked Catholics didn't have a sign imprinted on there forehead, or wore distinguishing clothes.

    Any opinions?
    I'm in two minds.
    Should a Govt. be able to legislate and ban such things or is this good and will help social integration?
    Stupid French socialists don't grasp the concept of freedom of religion. Not only should the government not enforce religion it should not abridge religion either.
