Why is this thread in the CT forum? I had trouble finding it.
Here is a link to some pros and cons about banning
burkas and according to the site, pro and con are running 50:50 as opinions.
I have mixed feelings from, surely we should allow religious freedom, to, if banning
burkas (just the full face covering) helps advance women's rights, maybe we shouldn't take these women's word for it they freely choose to act like slaves. After all, like indoctrination in many religious groups, there are sometimes when it goes too far. In this case girls are indoctrinated to believe they are owned by men. That is not religious freedom, it is oppression.
Don't attack me for posting the adversarial opinion here, I am on the fence. There are pros and cons. I just want to make it clear this is not necessarily some right wing oppression of Muslims.
