    Would you favor a law banning burqas in the United States?

    Tomorrow France's Burqa Ban law goes into effect, would you be in favor of a similar law here in the United States?

    If they were banned, what would I wear, when I go clubbing?

    Such a law violates both freedom of speech and freedom of religion. So no, I would not favor such a law.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    I would suggest saranwrap if you were a young fit and attractive female.

    But given you are a hairy ape, the burka it is

    That would just involve me removing the burka, I guess I can live with that.

    Re: Would you favor a law banning burqas in the United States?

    Does Allah really say they must dress like that? When I was a kid women were supposed to wear some sort of head veil or hat to church. Men would take off their hats when entering. So there were acceptable customs that were followed.

    None of that garb kept anyone from being recognized. That's just too important a thing on so many levels
    .
    So I'm sorry ladies, no burkas, But do where a bra in church for heavens sake!
