THIS IS DISGUSTING, AND DESPICABLE, AND . . .

It'll be another light blogging day, but I just read this and am infuriated.

I know there are many areas in the world (yes, including many cities in the US) where wearing some traditional or religious attire or head covering will get a notice, or a laugh, or maybe a jeer. And in some cases, it will provoke violence.

But when a religious leader tells his community they shouldn't wear something traditional for fear of violence, that's sad. That this has occurred in a supposedly free, democratic country is disgusting, and despicable, and what appears to be "normal" in France these days. And there appears to be no effort within the French government to do a damn thing about it.
