The Burkini

The Burkini: Muslim women in Australia love the beach but don't want to compromise their conviction about modesty. The solution they've devised is the "burkini." This Reuters video gives a report.

this needs to be in your brothers next modesty survey :-)

Very interesting. I don't think it would pass for a really devout Muslim though... It shows the evil shape of a woman still. I hope you're not implying that there is any similarity between Christian modesty and the Muslim idea of it. An interesting look at how women are viewed in pure Islam can be found online at The Voice of the Martyrs bookstore (www.vombooks.com).

Julie,

I only posted this because I found it fascinating. I realize there's a great difference between biblical teaching on modesty and muslim teaching. Thanks for the link. I'm grateful for VOM and their work.

Josh, thanks for clarifying that. I appreciate you taking time to respond.
