Easily leaving the church isn't punishable by death now. But this wasn't always the case. Christianity today is only more moderate because it has become less Christian. 

1 Corinthians 11:6 - For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered.

Also... feeling comfortable when out and about is about habituation. A moderately dressed N.American woman who would dress as a dominatrix to do her groceries would feel 'uncomfortable'. Some from the Arctic regions used to dressing in long sleeves and long pants will feel 'uncomfortable' walking into a restaurant with short shorts and a bikini top only. Dress codes are easy to get used to. So when they say "I'm comfortable hidden like this", I say pooey, they just don't have experience with the other way. I went through the North to South dress code change... one habituates quickly.

Yes, but a nun can also leave her order, and the church, without endangering her life.  Can't say the same for most Muslim women. Or men.

I wouldn't consider being brainwashed into thinking that ones life calling was to be celibate and dedicated to the zombie jesus a choice.  That being said, I do understand that not wearing a habit doesn't have legal ramifications.  All of it is fucked up, in my opinion.

I think the point is that there IS no difference, except that women become nuns by choice. (It's been a long time since I've seen a nun wearing one of those Middle Ages outfits.  The ones around here wear tailored suits, usually.)

I have read that most muslim women feel more at ease in public in those sacks, or at least with their head-rags on, but that's cultural conditioning.

Someone really needs to explain to me what the difference is here....

Dee,

"...stood across the street and prayed." [while the church burned]

I wonder which did more good, the prayers or the firefighters.

Sadly, I think some of them do.  At the very least, most people make major decisions like this for emotional reasons.
