So maybe it's all the hype about the mosque to be built at Ground Zero or the most interesting move by Pastor Terry Jones in Florida to establish an "International Burn-a-Qu'ran Day" on September 11...but for whatever reason, Islam is on the brain, well my brain. Or maybe it is the increase of ladies I see veiled around town, not only in the city, but in the suburbs-at the grocery store, at the gym working out in their hijab. Not to mention the niqab! It all really has me thinking - what is the difference between say the Muslim standard of modesty and the Christian one? Is there a difference? And does it matter? I mean, when you see the way some women dress themselves these days, you cannot help but wonder if a veil might look nicer.... But there I am provoking. Before I give my own thoughts, I really want to hear yours, readers. Also, feel free to tell me your thoughts on the mosque and the pastor...
