What are they smoking over there?
When even Fox News gets it:
handing a four-year seat on the influential human rights body to a theocratic state in which stoning is enshrined in law and lashings are required for women judged “immodest.”
you know you’ve seriously fucked up.
At least sanity was flouring somewhere. Belgium is close to passing a ban on the burqa. I know it infuriates me personally just because there’s no ‘u’ after the ‘q’.
The President of France said it better:
“In our country, we cannot accept that women be prisoners behind a screen, cut off from all social life, deprived of all identity. The burka is not a religious sign. It’s a sign of subservience, a sign of debasement”.
You tell ‘em Sarkozy!
