DO NOT QUESTION THE CHURCH OR YOU WILL BURN!!!

Party hats are the exception the the no hat rule. xD

*munches banana*

There was a time when a ‘gentleman’ would wear a hat, but remove it when entering a building. In that same time period, it was required for a woman to wear a hat to church. I can’t answer the synagogue question because I have never been in one. But from what I have seen, I would call those things turbans, not hats.
Yeah, don’t get me going on the pope.

tradition. but that goes for everywhere. not just church. I’ve seen guys take their hats off in school, the mall and so on.

many complex rules help keep focus away from the garbage passed down as truth from the pulpit.
For additional verification of the veracity of this notion watch cspan!

More importantly, why can’t women be priests, but men can?

It may have to do with the different styles of men’s and women’s hats. Men’s hats are easily removed. Women’s hats usually have many decorations and are sometimes anchored with hat pins which make them quite difficult to remove.

Women totally CAN cover their hair in the synagogue! Orthodox women are required to cover their hair after marriage – then must wear their hair covering to the synagogue.
It’s just not typical for Jewish women to wear Kipppahs, or Yarmulkes. But they totally can wear hats/headscarfs/wigs into the synagogue.

Any man who prays or prophesies with his head covered brings shame upon his head. But any woman who prays or prophesies with her head unveiled brings shame upon her head, for it is one and the same thing as if she had had her head shaved. For if a woman does not have her head veiled, she may as well have her hair cut off. But if it is shameful for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, then she should wear a veil. A man, on the other hand, should not cover his head, because he is the image and glory of God, but woman is the glory of man. For man did not come from woman, but woman from man; nor was man created for woman, but woman for man; for this reason a woman should have a sign of authority on her head, because of the angels.

1 Corinthians 11:4-10

Long story short, Christianity teaches that women have to wear hats in church to show their inferiority to men. If they refuse to wear something on their head, they should be shaved bald to teach them humiliation. Isn’t it all so wonderful?

Isn’t it…?

Please read 1st Corinthians 11:7-10. That will answer the question.

Because our hats are cuter.

The no hat rule, has nothing to do with the bible.
It’s a old school rule, it use to be impolite for a man to wear a hat in the house or at the dinner table or in church, these rules are silly and should be taken out of current day churches, but there is more important things to deal with when it comes to the current church.

So we won´ t get blinded by the light
So, you won´t get blinded by the light
*sucks*

the bible have rules about head coverings not hats , and the rules apply when people are praying and prophesying. You don’t have to be in church to pray or prophesy.
