    Reminds me of the old George Carlin rant about God not being able to make up his mind about hats.
    When women go into church, God wants them to have hats on. But when men go into a church, God wants them to take their hats off. Unless you are a cardinal or pope, then God wants you to wear a really really big silly hat. And if you are Jewish, then when you go into the synagogue God wants you to have you head covered  (by a yamaka, or yarmulke), or if you are a Jewish woman you should wear a wig. God just can’t seem to make up his mind about hats.

    George Carlin explains it (better than I can):

      Only problem with Carlin is once you start watching him, you cannot stop.

        Yup.

    Backwards perhaps, but certainly no weirder than fashion sense of fashion designers.

    Am with god on this one – or would be if he existed. Can I apply for financial help to get all those lovely boots my god wants me to wear this fall?

      I’m with you, my god has a wicked-ass fashion sense and those threads don’t come cheap. Can they be tax deductable?

    Many extremist religious groups are nuts about this topic. They justify it that it is supposed to be symbolic of a particular belief or practice. If that is so, why go to such lengths? And in public? I think it is a “symbol” of pride and Look At Me.

    The sad thing is, you can probably get a full tax-deductible wardrobe for every season.

    Actually, that’s not sad, that’s pretty cool.
