    Austrailia bill requires Muslim women to lift veil.

    If you strike me down, I'll become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.

    Re: Austrailia bill requires Muslim women to lift veil.

    My opinion? Is I have no opinion about a country that will never effect me in any way.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    I think there should be a legit reason to do so. They shouldn't be able to on whims.

    My opinion is that there's already a serviceable thread on this subject
    I may be wrong.

    I didn't realize this was a poll. The other is not. My apologies.

    Other than for entering government buildings and other secured locations, this is nothing more than legislated morality.

    "allowed to pass"

    that turn of phrase says something--idk what, but something.

    I see no reason to try and stop Australia's legislature.

    I doubt that the law will actually have much impact, other than being yet another law on the books. So, even though it might be extraneous or possibly redundant, I don't see any reason to try and stop it.
    I may be wrong.
