From Atheist Media, the Big Question discussing whether the burka should be banned in Britain.
First of all I want to say I am disgusted by the things the woman in the Burka is saying.
My biggest problem is with her insisting it is about freedom of choice, and her right to wear what she wants.
BULL! I'd like to hear her say that to all of the women in the world who have NO freedom of choice and are forced to wear the burka for fear of death.
I think her silence when asked why men shouldn't wear burkas was very telling. She kept insisting it wasn't about the subservience of women, but she had no answer for that.
I also think it is incredibly ridiculous to let women wear these costumes in public places. If a man wore something concealing his entire face and identity, the cops would be called on him!
