It would be very helpful if the members of this community who provide some pros and cons to wearing a Burka,

Thank You.

Pro - Some women want to walk down the street without people checking out their body.

Con - Some women want to show off their figure but are forced to cover up by their husband or father.

While the burqua hasn't a Christian history, head coverings does.

Not burka as such, but Covering up in general. The practice is as vital to Christians as it is to Muslims and Jews, it's another example of how Christians ignore parts of the Bible.

This is a very interesting point actually. I have brought this up to people before, some of them being christians. It seems many people just feel the old testament of the bible should be disregarded as there's the new testament. The new testament isn't meant as a replacement for the old testament. They're both still parts of the christian bible so should be followed as such.

Only if you ignore the reasons why there is a new testament.

We want to be Jewish but its too much hard work?
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

Why is it that Puck knows more about the Bible than most Christians?

Because most Christians only care about God when it's convenient for them :p

Pros: It discourages the sexual objectification of women

Cons: It's intrusive and inhibits women's freedom

There are more, but most of them play off of those...
