European Court of Justice: No Headscarf Ban, No Pandering to Religions

European Court of Justice: No Headscarf Ban, No Pandering to Religions

This is just stupid clickbait from the Whitetop BBC!

Regardless of the unduly inflammatory headline, it’s about the wearing of “any political, philosophical or religious sign.”

So, this is about evening the playing field, not about special rights for Muslims, non-Muslims, atheists, religious folks, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, little eggers or anyone else. There was no “headscarf ban,” regardless of what conspiracy theorists tell you.

As always, if you peel behind the clickbait, there’s nothing dodgy going on. Employers can decide for themselves (within reason) if they want a neutral employment setting. I should like to think the last thing most people need is the government being a heavy-handed arbiter of that.

If you are working for company, you leave your opinions and convictions at the door of your office, and you don’t ostentatiously flaunt your piety, which is a private affair; no matter what religion, or none, you belong to.
If someone took out a Bible or a Dhammapada in the middle of an office break and started telling you about the way to eternal life or the path to enlightenment, people can research these matters in their own time, and decide whether they are worth engaging with or not.

Here, as elsewhere, manufactured outrage is more lucrative than nuanced, objective, dispassionate reporting.
