Nuns oppressed at French beach
Rudy Salles, the Deputy Mayor of Nice, released a statement on Sunday regarding the use of religious clothing at public beaches.
Nuns are no longer allowed to wear their habits to the beaches of Nice.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - While many stand by France's decision to ban Muslim attire at public beaches, suddenly the thought of any other religious clothing has become an issue.
For a short time, France banned burkinis - but France's highest court suspended the ban on Friday.
As reported by the BBC, telling anyone they can't wear specific religious clothing is a "seriously and clearly [illegal breach] of fundamental freedoms."
LifeSite reported Mayor Salles defended the law. During an interview with BBC, he explained the same rules apply to nuns as they do to Muslims. "The nuns are going on the beach with bathing suits," he stated.
He explained: "Religion and the state are completely separated. Religion is the affair of each one, but each one at home, each one in the church but not on the street."

As unbelievable as it sounds, Mayor Salles did claim religion has no business in the public. It's just as ludicrous as universities designating specific areas where Constitutional rights could be practiced.
Salles continued, saying: "What is the burkini? There is a bikini and there is burka and the burka is forbidden. When you go to the beach you wear a bathing suit. You don't go to the beach as you want. If I want to go on the beach naked it's forbidden - I cannot.
"So if you want to go to the beach in a burkini it's forbidden because it is a provocation."
France is experiencing some serious issues concerning women's rights, religious-fueled fears and illegal banning of clothing.
People do horrible things when they are afraid, but Mayor Salles isn't talking about the fear of the people - he's talking about the oppression of a woman's right to go to the beach fully or barely clothed.
Religion may not be allowed in public but misogyny certainly is.
