Christian church wants women to cover heads in church?
There is a common saying, that there are no atheists in foxholes. Of course this is a lie. There are many atheists in foxholes or who have served in combat, maybe even more then their percentage of the population as a whole.
Indeed, there is an organization of atheists, freethinkers and humanists (many who have served in combat) called the Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers.
I bring this up because of the hostility and lies that atheists face daily, both inside and outside of the military. They are said have formed the backbone of the Nazis in Germany, although the Nazis relied upon 2000 years of Christian hatred and persecution of Jews.
Indeed, one Christian radio host implied that Christians faced persecution in Nazi Germany. No, only if they opposed the Nazis, and unfortunately, not that many did that.
By the way, do you know how many Islamic groups require and force women to cover their heads? Well, it seems not too long ago, about a century ago, in many parts of the U.S. women were required, though not necessary by law but by custom, to do the exact same thing while in church. In fact, a bible verse states:
"Every man who has something on his head while praying or prophesying disgraces his head. But every woman who has her head uncovered while praying or prophesying disgraces her head, for she is one and the same as the woman whose head is shaved."
Who would have thought, sexism in the bible?! Anyway, Christians have once again to thank our humanist heritage for taking the worsts of their religion and making them better. If not for the Enlightenment, Christianity in the West would be almost as bad as Islam today.
