Europe's failure to integrate Muslims | Geography 400 Class Blog |
So, I'm of two minds about this - and I feel that each has it's merits in modern society:

On the one hand, I've a fierce belief in the individual's right to choose (anything and everything) and determining one's Religion epitomizes that ideal.

However, there ideas and practices that tend to marginalize women or children which might need to be addressed to ensure equal participation in modern society. How can a woman, who cannot show her face, contribute to society equally? Can a child enrolled in a western school still answer the call to prayer without it impacting his or her educational progress?

Devil's advocacy aside, the real question is how far down that slippery slope can you travel and still claim to be "educated" or "enlightened?"
