For those of you who live in Europe – and even those who don’t – you’ll know that headscarves – and now burqas – have been a hot-button political issue in France for awhile now.
Today, a colleague of mine over on PoliticsDaily.com – Bonnie Erbé – wrote a post suggesting why she thinks France should go ahead and ban the burqa…and why The United States should do the same thing.
As with so many issues, my feelings on burqas and headscarves have changed dramatically since living in a country where they are a part of everyday life.
Please come visit me over on PoliticsDaily.com today where I find myself in the unexpected position of…defending the burqa.
