Oh, I didn't know that turbans cover their faces. I didn't know that hardscarfs that don't cover faces fall into this category somehow.

if the law was "Don't cover your face." fine. But they are targeting more then that because "OH NO MUSLIMS!"

No. Actually, they're targetting Muslims, Jews, Christians and anybody else who wants to advertise their religion while working in a public office. The only discrimination here is against religion - all religion. I have no problem with that.

I see no point in avoiding a good quote, just because it's mine.

Beyond the fact that you just fucking quoted yourself, you must realize that every one of the terms you use ("humanity", "all religion", "history", "rational") in said quote are generalizations so over-stretched beyond their original intent that they express nothing a brain-dead rehearsal of pedestrian modern prejudices?

Shut thy current shitty reading and open some real quote-makers. Here's two.

Not only did you quote yourself, you cited the year in which you wrote it.

Do you have a whole Word document of these? Do you ever note where you are and what you're doing when you write them down?

"God sucks." --December 20th, 2007. Sitting on my toilet, evacuating my bowels after a hearty Mexican dinner.

"Christians are stupid." --July 14th, 2008. Immediately after Mom grounded me.

"This fedora looks good." --October 1st, 2009. Prior to me purchasing said fedora.

Actually they are making a specific clause for Christian crosses to allow them. Can't marginalize everyone now....they'd have no support left.

The cross on mont royal is a heritage piece but the one in the assembly is hypocritical.

Precisely, this entire charter is about pushing Quebec nationalism. This PQ basis its existence on separating from Canada. By pushing this charter they are hoping to fuel their separatist agenda. It has nothing to do with "secularism", "separation of church and state".

Then you are not a secularist. Secularism implies indifference from the government with regards to religious matters. It cannot pass laws restricting practice of religions unless there is a security (secular facet) concern. Otherwise it becomes a type of atheocracy (not too different from Sharia).
