On the swimsuits, I'm in total agreement.
On the courts, I disagree. I've posted this before, and I'll post it again. Please note that this started by a Muslim woman.

I have seen it. Suffice to say that not all Muslim women in Europe are on the same page. The key element of the alternative dispute resolution system (which includes the Sharia Courts) is that both parties must agree ahead of time to handle their dispute there.

Personally, I prefer to oppose violations of the rights of women (including violence against women) across the board, rather than selectively picking off Muslims as being the only violators.

With regard to manner of dress I have known both Christian and Muslim women in this country who have made choices regarding modesty in dress, up to and including head covering (haven't actually known anyone who wears a full burka). I recall a friend who was a teacher who had to deal with religious opposition to boys and girls swimming together in order to work with a school group planning an extra-curricular activity. Her students were Christians.

Personally, my days of desiring to wear a bikini are long gone (although I am also no "beached whale"), but I have never personally felt a need to adhere to full body coverage in order to be suitably modest. But I don't hold it against any who do make those kinds of choices.

That's right Spook. It time we drew a line in the sand and said "hell no" to the fanatics who want to force our women to wear the large burlap bag they call a burqa.
Only problem is that first you would have to find them.

I don't deny that such exist in the world.

However, in realistic terms, who in America are you in fear of?

And while drawing your lines, might you consider drawing a line in the sand saying hell no to those who want to tell American women that they are not competent to make decisions with regard to legal medical procedures without such requirements as informing their husbands, waiting three days, receiving medically unnecessary ultrasounds and having the resulting pictures shoved in their faces?

Just askin'.

It is fairly well known that honor killing is a tribal practice that has nothing to do with Sharia. Similar to female circumcision.
Haha--not to a good many who post on Topix it is not well known.

I wrote a letter to Obama directing that all my tax dollars go to supporting Cadillac-driving welfare queens buying lobsters with food stamps, kinda like you can do with United Way so that you don't contribute to charities you don't agree with. So I can totally assure you NONE of MY tax dollars are going overseas.

Yes, they were terrorists and were deported. That is how is is supposed to work.

Now, where are the folks who are working to deny American women their right to wear a bikini?

I see folks trying to stand between American women and birth control, abortion and sometimes equal pay for equal work. But I just don't see anyone trying to put in place a restrictive dress-code for life.

Had Santorum gotten very far, then you could have been worried. As it was, he was supported by a certain group but only a certain group. In no way should his thinking be construed as the thinking of all "on the right".
