Not sensible reasoning

Reader comment on item: Niqabs and Burqas as Security Threats
in response to reader comment: to ban it is just like to ban the freedom of personal choice of religion

Submitted by sensible (Barbados), May 23, 2010 at 22:00

I would tell you a couple of colourful words, but my comment would not be posted. That said, personal choice of religion is fine, as long as it is not a danger to society, which face covering obviously is. If a group of big black men (I'm black so relax, not being racist) decided they wanted to have a religion where they covered their entire faces in this manner, would it be allowed? I know not. Why? It's dangerous, and so is that aspect of their (muslim) religion. Be free, but not dangerous and stupid. This is a no-brainer ...
