I am reading about this mom who wouldn't uncover in a Catholic school. I know it wasn't in America but so many people were talking about religious intolerance. If it is a religious based school/building do they really have to allow others to practice their religious beliefs? I am not just talking about a head scarf, I mean in terms of everything. Like saying there will be religion classes teaching only what Catholics believe, preaching against abortion and so on...
Is it really fair to make a religious school accept other religions?

From my understanding, the incident you're referring to where the mother asked to remove her head scarf was asked to do it as a matter of identification and security and not so much about religious intolerance. There was even an article in the NY Times last year about how respectful Catholics schools in France try to be for Muslim students. Catholic Bishops in England talked about opening prayer rooms in Catholic schools for Muslims. (continued)
