“...take their cultural headscarf off ...”

Well ... If I went hard-core Mennonite and started wearing a prayer covering (I’m not)I would be mighty surprised if people started asking me to take it off. I wouldn’t take off a prayer covering.

That said ... I wonder if the head scarf is a smoke screen and she got fired or disciplined for attendance issues if she expected to take Fridays off.

My conclusion is that Islam is not compatible with Western life.

What a gig.

Though pretending to be mozlim would be like rolling in $#1t to pretend I’m a pig.

But for the Mennonite, their prayer caps are an article of faith. They wear it as a sign of devotion to God.

You don’t find them in some forums saying, oh, it’s cultural, it has nothing to do with our faith, and in others saying it is a religious covering. The apologists for Islam do this all the time. I’ve seen that argument a million times - “the hijabs are cultural, not religious”, - but if they get asked to take it off, then suddenly it’s religious.
