Well, you could always go to TrueJew's church wearing a short sleeve shirt and a wristwatch and have them go ballistic on you. That would be worth a larf, if nothing else.

I once wore a Red Wings cap while attending a church service.

I only was wearing it because I had a horrendous haircut and was very embarrassed over it and didn't want others to see me this way.

Anyway, when I stepped away for a moment to use the restroom, a gentleman walked in behind me and then asked for me to leave.

What hurt me the most was being homeless at the time this happened.



Ouch, that certainly wasn't Christ-like, who accepts all as they come. Sorry you dealt with that, it's absurd IMHO.

Would that make you hate Pastor Reckhart as much as people with TV sets do?

Well, it's not on his list, but probably. I ran across the wristwatches bit in some rant of his in which he blamed them for the decline of western civilization.

You make the list for your tattoos, congrats. I make it because I wear shorts when I mow the lawn (as well as what looks to be about 80% of his various criteria.)

Well darn. If I make the list because of my tattoos then so do people who eat shrimp.

They're both in the same chapter of Leviticus.

Egads, when did I become a Hebrew or a Levite??

The point of these things is to deny our human nature. We're supposed to be ashamed of being human, so why enjoy it? That includes fashion as well.

I'm out, my church is casual. Southern California man, were always casual.

I think it's a generational thing. I had to dress up as a kid, now it doesn't matter.
It's not just churches either. They used to dress up to go to the movies, baseball games, even dress up for dinner in thier own house. Blame Levi and his 501 Jeans.

What if you reverse it, show up to a casual church wearing a sports coat, tie and pleated slacks. For sure to get some looks there.


Akragon:
This scenario described by Observationalist is your control group. If it's a true experiment, you're gonna need one. And I completely mean that in a half-serious, half-joking manner. Because I'm very scientific and stuff.

Have you ever tried going to church in your regular casual ware?

Better yet, ripped jeans and a T-shirt? (if that's your thing)



You know this reminds of a brief time when I dabbled in Mormonism. Before I figured out the Joseph Smith was running around manipulating 14 year old girls into polygamy.

A branch president said in regards to wearing a suit "Put your best foot forward for the Lord".



I guess that doesn't include respecting the law.

But even churches with no regard for the law judge people by how they are dressed, not their amount of respect for the law.
