I had a dream(obviously no basis in reality since my daughter is 2 months) last night that my daughter came to me and told me that she wanted to be a Muslim and chosen not just to wear the hijab(the headscarf) but the full niqab(face covering). I woke up so up so I didn't get to see how dream self took it. I do worry about how my daughter might be looked at or persecuted in our small community as a niqab wearing Muslim woman.
I know that we all have our own comfort levels but it seems like in this day and age we all have to ask ourselves: What if my child was a different religion then me?(This isn't common in my community FYI.)
I mean not just like the family is Methodist and your son is Baptist but I mean like he decides he's Baha'i or orthodox Jewish or Muslim or heck Pagan? How would you feel if your daughter came to you and said she wanted to wear a niqab?
I guess I'm just curious as to what everybodies comfort level is? I mean they are always your child nothing will change that but how do you feel about it?

My autistic son, who is very gullible was brain washed by a group of fanatical evangelical kids at his high school. He has no friends, so they would sit with him at lunch and indoctrinate him.They gave him a book (that my son gave to me to read because he was trying to convert me.) that said he should be willing to die for God, and that he must shun his family if they do not become true believers. And that was in the first few pages of the book. I stopped reading and INSTANTLY called the "church" and said my son did not have my permission to attend their "church", Before I read the book I was letting him go to the "church". It was REALLY rough for awhile, but eventually he seemed to drift away from the crazy talk. I'm assuming his new "friends" stopped spending time with him when I stepped in and wouldn't allow him to participate in their insanity.
