Ban the Burqa in Ground Zero?

burqas2

We personally are not opposed to the building of the proposed Islamic Center near grown zero but we don't encourage it either. We much rather have our community centers free of any religion.

That being said, since this looks to be a private venture and it's intentions seem not to affect the community in a negative way, then I say more power to them. After all, if we are to restrict the building of a place of worship for Muslims "near" ground zero then it's only fair we shut down the two churches in the surrounding area.

I don't have a problem with the Islamic center as much as I have a little problem with Burqas worn in public spaces. Ya know, a Burqa is the traditional Islamic coverings some women of Islamic faith wear. What bothers me is not so much that the women wearing the Burqas can see me yet I can't tell who is under those human sized tents. What bothers me is the fact that Burqas do NOTHING for fashion. REALLY!

Sure, these Islamic ladies could be wearing Victoria Secret under their Burqas, but it is highly unlikely. Also what's the point of wearing Manolo Blahniks in public if they will be under a huge bed sheet? Just sayin'.

We're not saying that these women should let their underwear hang out either, especially not in Delcambre, LA. Apparently since June 11, 2007 sagging pants have been against the law in Delcambre, LA, a town of 2,231 that is 80 miles southwest of Baton Rouge. The style carries a fine of as much as $500 or up to a six-month sentence. REALLY? REALLY? Cracking down on Butt Cracks?

We personally LOVE to see young men's asses hanging out.

Of course I would never sign a petition to ban the Burqa in public spaces because to us it would be the equivalent to banning halloween masks (even though you don't see people walking around with a mask on their faces 365 days a year). It really shouldn't be up to the law to tell people what they can and cannot wear. What's next, giving $500 fines or six month sentence to cross-dressers in public places?

What we are saying is that we simply wish women of Islamic faith would join the rest of us in public by showing us their wonderful smiles. I don't think that's too much to ask, do you?
