i know that is a much more extreme example.... but at the core of this debate is the absurdity of the rules that are being imposed on this man by his muslim faith.... and they are most certainly absurd to me. where do you draw the line?
You're questioning Muslim faith there which is fine but you can't blame the dude for it. He was born into it and brainwashed into it (most likely). Yes there's a shitload wrong with the Muslim religion but that goes for all religions. In this case I think the barber has a point. He was exercising his religious belief not questioning gender equality. I think the woman is just milking it or is highly ignorant of the Muslim religion. Either way, I don't think this'll drag on to court
