Empowerment? Armed French police force woman to strip for wearing too many clothes at the beach | 27Ago2016 15:59:38
CANNES, France, August 24, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — French police reportedly forced a Muslim woman to strip off layers of clothing on a beach in front of a hostile crowd as part of the enforcement of a “burkini” swimwear ban.
Nice deputy mayor Rudy Salles was on the BBC defending the illegality of women wearing clothes to the beach that they consider modest. Just listen to this exchange when he was asked if a Catholic nun would be allowed to be on the beach in her religious habit.
Interviewer: What about a Catholic nun, would she be allowed to appear on a beach wearing her habit?
Salles: No, the same. The same rules apply. The nuns are going on the beach with bathing suits.
It’s equal opportunity modesty banning in France and it really comes down to a crackdown on any and all religious-based morality.
