Comments on: France starts ban on full-face veil, factbox on veils in Europe Religion, faith and ethics Sat, 23 Apr 2016 23:25:07 +0000 hourly 1 By: ChrisHerz Wed, 13 Apr 2011 01:48:23 +0000 I feel better about the French law against appearing veiled in public after learning that it applies also to Christian students: They too cannot wear large or conspicuous emblems in national buildings, which in France includes schools. It would have been better, removing the perception of anti-Muslim bias had this too been extended to persons in other public places.
France fought back more than a century ago against the evil tide of religious superstition which has done so much damage to my own USA. Kudos to her in persevering in this effort.
