Siding with the Muslims on this One

School bans Muslim mother from parents' evening for wearing veil

story here

Its one thing for naqib (full veil) wearers to try to become teachers or insist on wearing for a license photo but this is day to day life. This is also England, where they seem unable to draw the right line been religious and public life. The story cited is about a Catholic school (over which the British Gov't has full control.)

This woman is not trying to change British society and those proto athiests called Protestants have not even been able to swallow young girls wearing normal veils, after deacdes of throwing open the doors and letting everybody move in.

Yes, I'm siding with the Muslims on this one. This is the sort of overreaction that I fear will come about after a years of over-liberalism. I must say, though, the mascara is really attractive.
