I wear a Cross on a chain around my neck. I usually wear it under my clothing. It is a constant reminder to me of my devotion to My Lord and Saviour. It is also a link to my parents ( who gave it to me) and my heritage. If legislation was enacted to make me take it off, I guarantee I would defy that legislation. As a rule I don't like telling people what to do.
That is why I am very wary of the burka ban in Quebec. I was discussing this with Barbara Kay yesterday in Montreal. She has a piece about it in the NP. While Chris Selley has an opposite view.
I tend to actually support Barbara's argument that the burka is not a religious symbol, but a way to oppress it's wearer. I must admit I am still wary of telling people what to wear, except it is true that we do adhere to some conventions in society, like wearing clothes at all. I understand the jihadi threat all too well, I am just not sure this is a good way to fight it.
