Just today, I saw that the ACLU (an obviously evil organization who hates Christians by requiring all those pesky ten commandments be taken down from public spaces) had filed a suit on behalf of a Christian woman who was required to remover her head covering to take her driver’s license photo. This can only be some ploy to get on Christianity’s good side (or more likely, they’re people who care deeply about everybody’s freedom and will fight on any side that’s needs someone in their corner.)
In the case of the hijab exception for Muslim women, we can see that wearing a hijab is very nearly a requirement and it’s also quite prevalent. Ask Christians who are the sort to wear head coverings and your list might consist of the Amish and Catholic nuns but not necessarily laywomen. Both groups are viewed as Christians, but parts of distinctive religions – so for the average Christian woman, head-covering isn’t a thing.
Some might look at old pictures and see that it used to be – back when people wore more formal clothes and traditional values tended to marginalize people of color. Times change, so do we. But somehow or other, head-covering has made something of a resurgence – a sign of one who obeys the Bible as literally as possible or something.
So, is Christian head-covering on your radar? Why not? Why so?
