Reader comment on item: Ban the Burqa, Allow the Burkini

Submitted by Ben (Netherlands), Aug 24, 2016 at 15:03

Ban religious propaganda, missionaries, prayers, and other religious activities from public places.
These things should be private, like sex, and they are especially provocative in multicultural societies: peaceful coexistence is only possible when people show some modesty and good manners instead of constantly shouting their barbarian beliefs around. It's not the dress but the intention. Even a Nazi didn't take a swastika to the sea, wearing it on top of his swimming trousers.
