I get that they have terrorists, but I don't think they should be able to regulate religus services.

Can someone give me an

this is mylee

so basically they are getting rid of some of the muslims religious rules like how you have to marry more than one wife but now one only.



This is London

XD when you don’t know what to say *ok*

@ NA

So basically France has tried to put in some new laws to try and reduce Islamic practices. They are doing this because there have been quite a few terrorist attacks recently and Islam is now the second most ‘popular’ religion in the country. What they are doing would ‘crackdown on Polygamy’ as well.

@ Mylee

Whoops I didn’t see your comment Mylee because I was writing mine when you posted yours, sorry!

this is mylee

Mirela that's ok i accidently said muslim n stead of islamic

Same problem.

I wasn't able to watch it ether, it's not coming up on my screen.

@ Everyone

Do y'all know what he meant about "Scotland snowplows"? Or did I mishear something?

This is London

If you did world watch I want to know what y’all voted I voted Luke snow walker ( which won lol)

I agree that they should

I agree that they should crackdown on Radical Islamists, but I don't know if limiting it will make terrorist attacks worse or not.

I can't see the video.

So..I can't watch this ;P can someone explain what is going on? (other than what the TITLE says)


I couldn't watch it either. Thanks Mirela and Mylee for explaining!

@ London

I wanted to vote that but I forgot! I was glad Luke Snowalker won! *me trying not to start another StarWars conversation as I do too many times!*

@ Mirela

*me wishing my b-day wasn't on StarWars day bc I get so many annoying puns*

@ N&M

Poor you!

@ NA

Aww I’ll happily trade birthdays with you in that case!

@ NA and Mirela

Is it weird that I wish my birthday was on Pi Day instead of Easter? I mean, it's only on Easter every decade or so. And Pi Day is pretty cool, but Easter (or Resurrection Day as all the people at my Baptist church call it) is pretty cool too..

this is Mylee

so N&M A your b day is on may the 4rth that would be fun XD ! May the 4rth be with you XD !

Oof it pulled up the wrong

Oof it pulled up the wrong video for me...


I think it's cool that your bday is on resurrection day! Did y'all know that Easter is named after a goddess of fertility? That's why we say Resurrection Day instead. Do any of you ever wonder why Christmas is more popular than Resurrection Day for Christians? I can see why unbelievers would like Christmas better, but we should like Resurrection Day better because it wouldn't have mattered that Christ was born if he didn't die on the cross! Just my thoughts... XP

@ Addie L

Yes, but he couldn't have died for us unless he was born! (That's my thoughts. Secretly, [wait, I'm telling you, so...:] I think Easter or Resurrection Day should be more celebrated, but I get way more presents at Christmas, so I very humanly like Christmas better.)
