Austria to ban full-face veil in public places

01 Feb

Excellent news! 🙂

.

Several European countries have imposed a full-face veil ban and others are considering it

Austria’s ruling coalition has agreed to prohibit full-face veils in public spaces such as courts and schools.

It is also considering a more general ban on state employees wearing the headscarf and other religious symbols.

    File this one under “too little, too late.”

      I don’t agree; it’s surely better to start, and try, than do nothing. The Lord might bless their efforts.

    Repatriation is the answer. Nothing less. Easy come, easy go.

    But yes, a positive step.

    Sooo…. no freedom of religious expression for Muslims then? Not a trend we might want to encourage as Christians.

      I used to think like you; now I think civilizationally, rather than purely in terms of liberal democracy.

      Outsiders don’t belong.

      The jihad doctrine prevents meaningful co-existence.

        Do you think the majority of Westernized Muslims hold to Muhammad’s understanding of Jihad? If not, wouldn’t it be wise not to push such Muslims into the arms of the ISIS strain of Islam? Nothing will do that better than clamping down on their freedom of expression. :\

        It doesn’t matter. It’s war now. Let them be faithful to their idol, and we’ll be faithful to our God, and fight for Him, His way, and the Truth.

        I think, perhaps, the way to fight for Him, His way, and the Truth is to acknowledge that Westernized Muslims are, for the most part, prone to nuancing or ignoring Muhammad’s understanding of Jihad etc. Many want to live peaceably and have condemned ISIS et al. In addition, a tremendous number of Muslims are completely ignorant of what their texts actually say. Our first priority should be to reach out to these people with the Gospel, not attempting to use coercive measures which will negatively affect them. We win the culture for Christ with the Gospel, compassion for those under the sway of Islam.
