Niqab Controversy in Quebec

Quebec, for us geography challenged Americans, is a province in Canada.

A bill, bill #94, has been proposed which would ban women wearing Niqab (face veil) from receiving government services. For me, this is the kicker:

What people are ignoring  is that Muslim women are human and deserve to be treated with dignity regardless of whether we agree with their choices or not.

So...what happened?

OK.. . .our old hosted wordpress site got hacked. We haven't been able to recover the old posts yet. We figured we'd try to start over here. From now on, we'll make sure to save our posts on our hard drives as well.
