Everyone in the question liked wearing the burqa and favored religious freedom. But some people get ticked when you talk about Jesus. So, it seems like the attitude is its ok to wear something as long as your mouth is shut. Is that tolerance.? Its just talking. How could you expect anyone to live in silence like that about what they think is good? Then no one could talk about any belief or religion.

I don't recall anywhere Christians were told t6ehy're never allowed to talk about God or Jesus. Do not churches still have bulletin boards out front? Do not JW's, Mormons, etc still go door to door and pass out fliers? Are there not billboardsa long the sides of roads that proclaim the news about Jesus.
I have a feeling though you are specifically referring to religion not being allowed to be endorsed by the government which is the first part of the establishment clause. Which means (much to many people's disagreements) that this is NOT a Christian nation and thus Jesus has no more place in our government than Hera, Zeus, Buddah, Thor, or any other god.

You can talk about Jesus and your god all you want. Just don't lead a whole government funded group (schools and such) in a prayer or force them to listen. These people are not forcing everyone around them to wear burqas or using government money to fund them. If you are at the coffee shop with your friends and I am sitting next to you and you are talking about Jesus I have no right to stop you. That is what these woman are doing they are not preaching at people they are walking around minding their business so no it is not Hypocritical to think they should be allowed to wear what they want.
