    Nice ad hom. I probably know more about xianity than you but it doesn't matter. The Church claims to know what god wants of it's followers.

    Shut up and obey the laws or spend you stupid time on earth changing itty-bitty, teenie-weenie laws that are there for whatever reason. Repeat;shut up.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    How covering hair is meant to signify modesty is beyond me as well :/
    Dunno; ask the Orthodox Jews. or the fundamentalist Christians, whose women have also now taken to wearing head coverings. Or extremist followers of any major religion, really.

    I suspect these laws harken back to a bygone era when "modesty"- ie covering one's body from head to toe with heavy, ill-fitting garments- was so de rigeur that men found women's hair (the only part of women that they could really see; the only visible part that clearly proclaimed femininity, ie, different from men) sensual, if not frankly sexual.

    Today, however, nobody normal cares about men seeing women's hair, because there are so many other, more blatantly sexual body parts routinely on display that hair arouses no particular excitement anymore.
