Is it moral to force men or women to wear veils or any particular garment?

I ask this question, because forcing people to do so, seems to go against the notions of freedom, liberty, equality and fraternity. It is an insult to our fiduciary duty to each other.

 

In many countries, be it a religious, political or social custom; women and men are forced to wear particular garments, veils or beards are two examples of this.

 

Does this practice of using force go against our fiduciary duty to women and men?

 

These Golden Rules exists in most religions and cultures.

 

No one likes to be forced to do anything, this is irrefutable.

 

In some cultures, force is used to have men and women kowtow to the culture or religion. This is a poor and immoral ideology.

 

I believe that obliging people to submit to any political, social or religious norm, --- without a just cause, --- is immoral.

 

Do you agree?

 

Regards

Mormon men have some kind of undergarment that they are "always" supposed to wear for penance or something like that. The Bible is very clear on this:

The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Mark+14%3A51-52&version=KJV

51 And there followed him a certain young man, having a linen cloth cast about his naked body; and the young men laid hold on him:
52 And he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked.

Mormonism was only invented 200 years ago, so how can the' bible be very clear on what Mormons are supposed to wear???

There were a lot of horny young men in this fantasy.   But actually this story is supposed to be about a young man wakened by a group of Roman soldiers  "The young men". He used his bed clothes to cover himself to see what was going on.   The soldiers thought he was likely a disciple of Christ tried to grab him and he was so keen to escape he fled naked.

The story is one about showing no mercy for alleged followers of Christ and had nothing to do with being forced to wear a particular garment.

But anyway you pick a very trivial example of where people are forced to do something.    A bigger question for me, is it immoral to tax people?   How about forcing men to pay for women who divorced them?   People think slavery is wrong, but its ok for someone to work 5 months of the year for nothing.  (Tax freedom day is in June) Is that not the definition of slavery?

Well, that partly explains it. He had to have some kind of "cover" to dispel any such notions, at least for long enough to get away.....

Seems OK with natural law to come into the world "Sky Clad". What we wear has nothing to do with anything on our own time. But If you take the kings token one should don whatever uniform that pleases the king while in his service.

Very true, according to the Gospel:

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Mark+14%3A51-52&version=KJV

Mark 14:51-52 King James Version (KJV)
51. And there followed him a certain young man, having a linen cloth cast about his naked body; and the young men laid hold on him:
52. And he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked.

https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Luke-12-23/

 22And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on. 23The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.

Job 1:21King James Version (KJV) https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Job+1%3A21&version=KJV

21 And said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.

James 2:15-16 http://biblehub.com/kjv/james/2.htm

15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, 16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? 17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

Those German BDSM freaks that force girls to wear all the metal paraphernalia, that's not moral, either.
