Only in France.......

The Associated Press is reporting that a French woman who recently converted to the Muslim religion was barred from a public pool because she wanted to swim wearing what is being called a "burquini", a variation, if you will, on the Muslim burqa that women of the faith are required to wear. French officials have concerns about the spread of bacteria and other germs because the "burquini" can be worn all day in or out of the pool. This 30-something woman wants to abide by her religion, which is understandable, but would this situation occur here in America? I don't know, but if it did, it'd probably be filed under "News of the Weird" or something along those lines.
