    Maybe you don't know but burka banned even in some Muslim countries, Morocco, for example. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Niqāb#Morocco

    Anything anti-Islam is something i vote for. No need for cults to be promoted.

    @Teppodama how the hell did you get dubs? That's weird... you're a pretty good poster.

    Genocide. Just straight out wrote a genocidal post, got past my psychotic break, and went back to normal posting then learned I got the canary paint. Was a righteous yellow though. Deserved, so no arguments on my part.

    Once Buddhists start in with daily terrorist attacks that might make sense. Islam isn't like other religions. Other religions aren't organizing terrorist attacks on a daily basis.

    Islam always hides behind this religious freedom argument. No one was considering this stuff before they started killing everyone.

    It's not about religion, it's about public safety.

    while I'm against legilsating what clothes you can wear, this goes beyond that. If you saw a dude with a ski mask on at the grocery store, you'd think wtf. We are an open society. We don't cover our faces, save for Halloween. If you feel the need to cover your face, or you feel that your wife needs to cover her face everyone she leaves the house, you can do it somewhere where that's considered normal, I. e. the oppressive regimes you're trying to get away from. Can't have your cake and eat it too.

    Why is Islam so successful?

    4. Islam commands its followers to create a government that supports it.
    This may be one of the most ingenious ideas in the whole collection. Islam is the only religion that uses it. Other groups of religious people have had political aspirations, but no other major religious group orders its followers — as a religious duty — to create a government that follows its own system of law.

    Islam has a system of law, called Sharia, and all Muslims are obligated to continually strive to make their government — wherever they are — follow it. Because of some of the other ideas added to Islam, you will see that this political addition to the idea-collection has significant consequences.

    Many people are under the impression that the goal of Islam is to convert everyone to Islam. This is not so. The prime directive of Islam is to bring all people on earth under the rule of Islamic law. Read more about the political nature of the core doctrines of Islam.

    The inherent degrading nature of the Burqa/Niqab is enough for me. Coercion/social pressure comes into play and the possibility of girls spending their lives under a tent and never being able to have a real conversation with someone in public is horrible.

    Are you a chick? You talk like a woman who pretends to be outraged by a dude she sleeps with a day later. Maybe it's just your cuckish mentality throwing me off.

    I would ban any type of clothing that totally masks who a person is. Not hating on just the burka, but I don't feel comfortable allowing people to walk about in public with something like that.

    I'd ban the one that covers the face, it fucks with their vision which makes them a danger on the roads and promotes a double standard. Could I wear that mask into a bank?

    The one that goes around the face makes them look like fat cancer patients but I'm alright with it being legal.

    I'm definitely against anything that covers the face. I was against those Hutterite pricks for the same reason; they'd refuse to have their pictures taken for ID/drivers licenses.

    The problem with this is you're speaking in absolutes for a massive amount of people. If you really think there isn't one good Muslim person that exists, we can leave it at that. I don't think we will come to a reasonable ground. Also, I'm speaking from the ground that the religion of Islam isn't that great of one and I still can acknowledge there are good people who are also Muslim. We could argue how that exists. I'd mostly say somewhat secularism the same sense that's what the west did with religion and governance.

    There was intel that existed that could've been handled for those two but it was ignored. That is an argument example of not vetting well enough.

    I'm pretty surprised by this too in here. I generally though most of the posters here had a more libertarian view in the sense of social issues/ "don't tread on me" vibe but something simple as a burqa they ban cause it doesn't have to do with them.

    These lines can become more and more blurry. The danger is you allow government to make these calls rather than individuals themselves. Keep in mind we aren't changing any domestic abuse laws in the country by not banning the burqa. A woman could leave her husband in the US if she is oppressed and there are plenty of means to help her be supported through that process so this doesn't have to do with oppression.

    Should government take stances with circumcision or anti gay conversion therapy? Cause I think they also should stay out of those issues because I hold the same principle there.

    Read my other posts. If you begin having government control how people can practice religion, you go down a dangerous path, especially if it's something as simple as clothing.

    Again, read my other posts, I almost made the exact same point with your last sentence there. Extreme vetting is the solution, not some religion questionaire for those coming in or a ban on a persons spirtiuality
