    That's troubling for anyone who understands that the entire basis of a republic is in the rule of law.

    There is a reason that the statue of justice is usually blindfolded. Maybe you can figure out why that is if you think really hard.
    That's the premise of everything I've said on this thread.

    Glad to see you finally caught up.

    I guess I'm just not used to people highlighting common knowledge.

    but in this case, no rules were broken. in fact, the rule has been amended to force removal (at the judge's discretion) of a veil.

    And I support that.

    We don't let the Amish get away with it, so why would we let Muslims

    Oh noes!!1!11! here comes Catz "the Amish are trying to take over the country.." ...and F107 "the Amish prayer veil is a public safety hazard..."

    Jerry, I've been saying the SAME DAMN THING since my first post on this thread. Maybe a reading class is in order.

    I'd like to invite you to revisit the thread. Your withdrawal symptoms are making you sloppy.

    That's not a prayer veil, that's bonnet, styled after the Quakers.

    Now go google up the correct garment and pretend you knew all along.

    On balance, you don't see the Amish making a fuss when asked to remove garments in court.

    Re: Michigan courts given leeway to force veil removal

    The amendment was prompted by a 2006 small claims case in Michigan filed by Ginnah Muhammad, who wore a niqab -- a garment that covers the entire face and head, except for the eyes -- to court, the order said.
    As she prepared to testify, Judge Paul Paruk asked her to remove her niqab, saying he needed to be able to see her face to tell whether she was telling the truth, according to court documents.
    Reasonable request.
    There is no need to cover face in a court and no it does not infringe her right to practice seeing the niqab is not a religious practice in any shape or form.

    You got me there, Jerry.

    I have to concede that my experience with people kicking up a fuss when asked to remove clothing is considerably less than yours.
