The full face veil (and the garb that covers your whole body - i forget what it's called) should be banned for the simple reason of security. The separation of church and state argument doesn't even need to be mentioned. If I can't ever see what you've got under there, I'm putting myself at greater risk just by being near you. The full face veil should also be universally banned because we communicate a lot through facial expression and gestures. It gives us an idea (better than none) of what you're thinking and your state of being. Also, criminals often wear concealing clothing; it only makes things harder for security to differentiate between an innocent bystander and a criminal. And of course this fact weighs on the average Joe mentally because of this simple association.
I'm totally cool with the hijab, or head-scarf.
