But is is clearly NOT OK as a sign of a religion.

A headscarf is never a problem if it is worn voluntarily or doesn't obscure the face without good reason.

How about it is no one else's business if someone wears a scarf or not.

It is everybody's business - if the headscarf should be a sign of religious fanatism.

My Guess, over 50% are too confused by this jumbled, irrational thread to be able to click on an option without sacrificing self worth.

What is the point of this thread?

If the headscarf is being forced onto someone, it's a problem.

But if the decision to wear one is voluntary, it's none of your damn business why they wear it. :thumbs:

Like a nuns habit, a yarmulke, or a priest’s collar?

A headscarf is fine against the weather. It's also fine if your religion demands it and you willingly submit.

It wasn't that long ago that Catholic women had to cover their head in church, so .....

I suppose it won't be long before you start a thread attacking those damn dot-heads too?

No more than long skirts, long hair, and no makeup is a sign of religious fanaticism. Or a yarmulke. Or wearing a cross.

Or neat white shirts with a tie and books in hand. Its really telling when you watch a show taking place involving outer space colonies and you can identify the persons religion by their clothes and approach.

expanse mormon - Google Search

Husband and I were watching and as soon as the first Mormon on the colony came into view, he said what I was thinking "they even have Mormons there".

Having certain styles or clothes or hats or hair coverings is a theme in several religions and does not indicate radicalism or taking your religion too far.

Exactly!
IN CHURCH!

And only IN CHURCH.

Not in every second that they spend outside their home.
Ever met someone who's Amish?
