17. Doesn't do much for me.
>>>>and turns their minds from the pure contemplation of patriotism to lusts of the flesh.>>>> For this reason women must keep their heads covered, especially in church, lest men be led astray.>>>>>

>>>> For men, on the other hand, covering the head is a sign of power, and removing the head-covering is symbolic of submission. It has long been tradition that men should uncover their heads in the presence of the sovereign, and, by extension, when singing the national anthem or pledging allegiance to the flag. One removes one's hat or cap, and holds it over one's heart.

This DO get complicated. I think I'll just take the ezy way out and mindlessly conform to whatever everyopne else seems to be doing.
