Religious Rights – How Far Do We Go?

Back in the news again. Kirpans.

Several Sikhs were denied entry into the Quebec legislature Tuesday. Security officials at the Assemblée Nationale refused to let them in because they were wearing kirpans, small stylized daggers worn by some religious Sikhs.

The topic that day in the legislature? Accommodating immigrants.

From Kirpans to woman who cover their faces. How far do we go with religious freedom and the rights therein?

I am not going to state my opinion, although long time readers will be able to guess!
