    France has lost freedom, that's all there is to that. There are already laws in France against beating women to make them conform, aren't there? Then should't those laws be enforced someday?
    Rather like the previous poster, you seem to think it's so easy for the battered wife to just take herself down to the police station. Many non muslim battered women have difficulty doing it - add the constraints of living in such a close knit community with very rigid ideas.

    And you think banning burqas will make that any easier? Women who are abused, will still be abused and will still face the same close knit community and rigid ideas. And women who willing choose to wear a burqa in accordance with their own religious convictions will be persecuted. Most of the propoents of banning burquas tend to come from one of two camps - feminists who can't believe any woman would choose a lifestyle contrary to their "modern and enlightened" ideals and islamophobes.

    No. Because if I could do that, I may as well waste my time voting on deporting anyone who bothers to look like Waldo. Banning this because of women's rights is a ridiculous notion to promote. Personally, I thought the low cut jeans of a short time ago had incredibly simultaneously given far too many boners, pissed off most fathers, and made an incredible amount of people vomit who had no idea such a jean could be so painful to see on the wrong body. All of that circus act was for self-expression and it came and went. At least give us the option for something more taming.

    Instead of Burquas can we legalize gags for people who talk but say nothing.

    That certainly would be unconstitutional.

    when innocent Muslim-Americans like Imam Rauf and his wife Daisy Khan try to build an interfaith community center to promote religious tolerance and unity two blocks from Ground Zero, that is supposedly a slap in the face to the victims of 9-11. however, selling 60 billion dollars worth of weapons to the Saudis, the country where 15 of the 19 actual 9-11 hijackers were from is ok apparently and it barely causes a murmur.

    Not anywhere and not in France. The cherished phrase "Liberté, égalité, fraternité" must now be changed to "égalité et fraternité" as liberty has just been removed in the foolish idea that this law would protect any of the 2000 burka wearers that may be being beaten at home in France right now.

    Probably not at this time. In this country, we have very few women who do wear a burka of their own free will and I don't care if they do. Now if those women are in an abuse relationship and they are made to, that's a different story. Lastly, we don't need to give the extremists another reason to point at this country and declare it anti-islamic, creating more potential for violence for a cause that really accomplishes nothing.
