Burka or not Burka Sarkozy?

The first thing that came across my mind when I browsed through the pictures was this :

“We cannot accept to have in our country women who are prisoners behind netting, cut off from all social life, deprived of identity”

“That is not the idea that the French republic has of women’s dignity”

It is French revolution or sheer hypocrisy?It is a matter of choice isn’t it?

But ladies, why burka?

Isn’t it a privilege to share the beauty of God’s creation?
