Missing the point

Some people just don’t get it.

“US police said a 58-year-old man stabbed his teenage son after he refused to take off his hat at church.

The father and his 19-year-old son got into an argument in Baltimore on Sunday afternoon.

That is when police said the father went to a car, got a knife and stabbed his son in the left buttock and fled.

The son was taken to University of Maryland Medical Centre for treatment.

The father’s name was withheld pending his arrest.”

Clearly this is what church is all about. Not wearing hats. So much so that we should stab those who wear them. Particularly if that person happens to be our son. 

Really – could somebody explain to this father that Jesus pretty much ran around in a toga and sandals – and would probably have worn something as functional as a cap if they’d been around. Caps are great, they keep your hair tidy and keep the sun off your face.
