The blog Joe. My. God. is reporting on the story of elementary school student Sunny Kahle, who had a letter sent home because she dressed too much like a boy. From the blog post:
Elementary principal Becky Bowman sent home a letter…reminding Thompson of the school’s religious affiliation and it’s right to refuse students who contradict a “biblical lifestyle.” “We believe that unless Sunnie and her family clearly understand that God has made her female and her dress and behavior need to follow suit with her God-ordained identity, that TCS is not the best place for her future education,”
Isn’t the Bible’s dress code being naked? For all of those persons who use the phrase ‘Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve’, Adam and Eve were naked. It wasn’t until they ate the fruit of the tree that they decided that they should clothe themselves. Even then, they did it with fig leaves. Fig leaves don’t come don’t come in gender tailored styles, the come in one style: a green leaf.
It seems to me that the invention of what a man should wear and what a woman should wear is clearly the design of man, not God. For if we were to follow God’s intention for what is ready-to-wear, we’d all be wearing nothing at all.
