    What do you do?

    Here's a hint - There is a reason for the picture ID. The picture being the main way we identify people

    forcing people to identify themselves, in security situations, is different than a blanket ban.

    The only mention on the Koran is to dress modestly. Not for women to wear a body shroud.
    are you claiming that religion is not interpretive?





    How people view these things is of no matter. We all have differences of opinion.

    Just like it doesn't mention anything about radio or TV. But content in those mediums are still protected by the first

    Non-Muslims needn't pay attention to them.
    so someone wearing a burqa is akin to tossing someone into a burning building?

    But why does she get to drive a car using US law to get to drive and then invokes sharia law to get out of it?

    Can a freeman do the same thing and invoke the god card and get away with it?

    Language is pretty straightforward and suggesting someone should 'dress modestly" does not mean they should walk around looking like a canned ham.

    Sure, and we're offering ours.

    As well they should be.

    And where did I say or suggest that, ManofthePeephole?

    If you can't understand how religious beliefs can often be rather crazy, as in the examples I gave, then please tell me now

    modesty is a relative and highly interpretive term

    You're not making any sense. You cited the fact that Burqas are not mentioned in the constitution. And to point out how trite a remark that was, I highlighted the fact that neither is TV or Radio.

    You suggested it when you drew the comparison

    1) I'm unsure when constitutional protections were limited to what you approved of

    2) in your example there is explicit harm being done. No such harm exists in someone wearing the burqa

    what are you even talking about? I already said a security situation is different than a general ban.

    Burka type clothing predates Islam. It is not a religious form of dress.
    Don't work out, work in.

    Never eat anything that's served in a bucket.
