While we move "ahead" Europe moves "backwards"

What do you guys think about this?

http://www.foxnews.com/world/2010/04...est=latestnews
Belgium is set to become the first ever country in Europe to ban the burqa being worn in public places.

The vote in Parliament for a nationwide ban on Islamic clothes or veils that do not allow the wearer to be fully identified was almost unanimous

Re: While we move "ahead" Europe moves "backwards"

Tough situation to comment on.

We are a nation of freedom. The religious attire here conflicts with the general welfare and safety of others, in an age of security concerns. Politically, I can understand Belgium's concerns (particularly in light of Mark Steyn's commentary). However, it's quite unfortunate that it will insult and demean an entire people and their faith (even though it is a false religion -- not really the point). From the vantage point of democracy, it should concern us all one way or the other. Far-reaching implications.

I wonder when we are going to rail on France and Belium for profiling or singling out an entire religious/ethnic group.

profiling of some sort happens all the time, legally and nobody complains. Discrimination happens all the time. People discriminate all the time.
