The serious , the satirical & the somewhere inbetween !
Very true - Fadel Soliman often uses that as part of his presentations to non-Muslims; adding Mother Theresa as well. Basically, if the some of the best women in Western eyes - Mary and Mother Theresa - wore a head covering, how can they demonise it the way they do?I think the bigger issue here is secularism and atheism - which don't want recognise ANY religious symbols / want to exclude them from public life (although it seems Islamic symbols are more targeted than those over other religions). For atheists, this argument means nothing because they don't care.
The fact that other religious symbols are 'banned' as an after thought or to make the proposed legislation seem more 'equal'is obvious however it is clearly part of the wider 'war on terror'(read Islam) and the polarisation of Islam as unacceptable and incompatible with western uncivilisation.
