Angillion: 1 Corinthians 11 has nothing to do with long hair on men.
Try verse 14.
[quote]It's about `covering` ones head during prayer[/quote]
That`s a bit earlier in the chapter. Here`s a modern English translation:
[quote]Now I want you to know that Christ is the head over all men, and a man is the head over a woman. But God is the head over Christ. This means that any man who prays or prophesies with something on his head brings shame to his head.[/quote]
Well, that makes it clear what a woman`s place is in Christianity under the much more enlightened new covenant. Good job Jesus got rid of all the nasty stuff. A brilliant display of logic in there too, explaining why you shouldn`t cover your head while praying.
I encourage people to read the Christian bible. I encourage people to read all religious texts, especially the old ones.

Angillion: 1 Corinthians 11 has nothing to do with long hair on men. It's about `covering` ones head during prayer in reference to what the Corinthians were doing at the time. The Corinthians were slipping back into heathen ways and he was warning them against that practice.
