There has been alot of talk about religious symbols in jobs which require a uniform.
Muslims are calling us racist for not allowing them to wear a scarf in the policeforce, hotel receptions etc.
This debate of course required my well educated answer.
Im gonna start wearing monks robe and apply to the police-academy... We shall see if they let me in.
Monks robe is my religious symbol. Or bishops hat and robe.
I'm not going to do an in-depth study here, but I'm pretty sure Islam requires its female practitioners to cover their heads when venturing outside the home. In other words, a scarf is not a symbol of Islam, but a requirement of Islam.
If your religion does not require you to wear a monk's robe or a bishop's hat when venturing outside the home, then I'm guessing the police will detain you for up to 72 hours under a mental hygiene law.
And rightfully so. ;-)
