Interesting that.

In many Christian churches around the world veiling is still in practice, and apparently making a bit of a comeback in the UK too. An ex girlfriend and I paid a visit to Basilica di San Lorenzo in Florence where she was asked to veil.

I always find it interesting that many in the west complain about Muslim women wearing the veil/head covering and yet don't complain about nuns for doing the same thing!

Your ex girlfriend was 'asked' to veil? How did you feel about that? How did she feel about that? Any dress requirements of the blokes?

Anyways, I do think most of the objection is to the face coverings, I certainly do not feel comfortable seeing that, and where I am rarely do.

In part for the same reason I do not like to see someone wearing a hoody to the point you can hardly see their face, or if someone walks into a shop wearing a motorcycle helmet.

Of course there is an element of feeling that person is drawing up a barrier, certainly would be difficult to gauge a smile from someone.

We all like to do that, don't we? We don't get a smile back we just think 'ah well' and then forget about it.

I find the face covering socially alienating tbh.

Any other religious garb (including the nun's head covering) doesn't really bother too many people I think.
