Amy links to a story about a Muslim student at a Catholic school who has decided she wants to wear her headscarf now. But the school told her that she cannot because it is not part of the uniform. I don’t understand what the big controversy is. She decided she wants to go to a private Catholic school with certain requirements. She is not required to attend the school and if her conscience impels her otherwise, then she is free to find another school.
As one of Amy’s commenters put it, would there be a controversy if a Muslim school told non-Muslim students they couldn’t eat pork in the lunchroom?
