Every religion has it's quirks, eccentricities, or odditties. Some however, I think go to far. In many Islamic religions, women are required to wear burqas, or garments of clothing that entirely cover the body but for two tiny eye holes. They are never allowed to take them off or wear differen clothes in public, or so says the koran. Even this kind of religion I would think fine if the men were also required to wear similar clothing, but they aren't. I think this directly shows male chauvinism at the base of these religions, which is the real reason I can't accept them very well. Although many may disagree, I feel this is an important issue, especially in Middle Eastern countries where this is a common belief.
A Fair Religion?
