Reader comment on item: Hijabs on Western Public Women
in response to reader comment: Sorry... Can't give it up

Just so we are clear...there are Christian churches in what you have called "Muslim" countries. Mostly Catholic. I spent 38 years in several of those Muslim countries, and was never denied access to Holy Mass on Sunday. I was never ridiculed for my beliefs, never forced to wear Hijab, Chador, or Burka. I lived my life to the fullest. Heck I even learned to belly dance. It was upon the illness of my grandmother 40 years ago that brought me to the United States to live. I have stayed only because it has become home after many years. I still go visit those places, but I must say given my ethnic last name I have great difficulty getting on a plane. So....it really isn't the religion, it's the people.. Did I mention I am Catholic?

Submitting....
