When you visit it someone else's neighborhood, is it too much to follow their requests?

Apparently not for some, who find it too pushy. 


It was just a request.  You are free, as an American, to do as you like.  No one would stop you from doing what you would like to do.

It's just disrespectful.  It's disrespectful to the people who live there - those who are expressing their first amendment right.  They have every right to practice their religion how they see fit, including asking for respect for it in their neighborhood.

Yet, so many Americans today have a strong averse reaction to such requests.  It somehow squashes on their rights?  There doesn't seem to be any evidence of this.  Rather, the histronic reactions you see attempt to relate such an event to religion trying to control everything.  One request for modesty becomes a request in their minds for religious totalitarianism.

It's not.  Asking for people to be dressed respectfully in a neighborhood does not lead to an establishment of a state religion - the first plank of the 1st Amendment.

The second plank gives people the right to freely exercise their religion. 

So this community is well within the rights established by the 2nd plank of the 1st Amendment.
