Freedom to go stark naked?

Reader comment on item: The Burqa Wars

Submitted by Gary E. (United States), Sep 29, 2015 at 07:00

Suppose a new religion appears that proclaims its adherents have the right to go about stark naked in public places. It appears to me that legislation to outlaw this practice would receive wide approval. Suppose next that the adherents of this religion reacted to such legislation by wearing clothes that were absolutely transparent. Again, I believe the public would demand legislation to outlaw this practice as well. But I must point out that the problem of concealed weapons or explosives would not be an issue.
