I couldn't personally careless what an indiviual wants to wear but an "Id" is no place for a burka. http://www.usherald.com/muslims-get-their-way-illinois-will-permit-...
Certainly a lady knows how to dress for each occasion. However to claim wearing a covering makes a woman pure just cant be taken seriously. The bible is clear that a covering for a woman Symbolizes purity where as it seems muslims like to believe coverings for women Make them pure.
Dirty Dancing in covering:
To claim a covering makes a woman clean just isnt true either.
1 Cor.11 Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you.
3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.
(woman -man- Messiah- GOD Almighty)
4 Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head.
5 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven.
6 For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered.
7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.
8 For the man is not of the woman: but the woman of the man.
9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.
10 For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels.
( Gen.1:18,23,24,25;3:16,7,13; 6:4/ Jude.1:6)
2 Cor.11:2-3 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.
3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
I literal covering for women carries a spiritual (figurative) meaning. That is that a women is claiming that she is one with another and not open to (spiritual) adultry. Its to ward off seducing spirits, and serves as a sign that such a woman is dedicated to remaining pure and the rightful authority over her which when taken to the point is that of GOD. This literal (Physical sign to to those in the physical world that such a respectable woman is not to be considered a open target for the ways of the world and its highlighted while such a woman is "praying or prophesying". Thus its a method of pointing to GOD. Muslims use of covering is to the literal extreme and often presented as a method of making a woman respectable (as if) rather than a sign of what she embraces spiritually.
