    And the hair is because they believe it represents the perfection of God's creation.
    Thanks, I was reading about the kirpan, but I had forgotten the hair. My first ever encounter with someone who was sikh was a family that moved into our neighborhood from India because of a job opportunity. I went to school and became close friends with the daughters, other than that I wouldn't know anything about the religion, or have much of a reason to learn, unless I was for some reason to go visit India.

    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist

    No. But my son created a rock band in his video game called Cheap Sheep Cheese.

    Does that count?

    Besides, most Muslims, aside from their women, don't even wear headgear unless it is to cover their faces.
    I think the kind of people who would do things like this aren't that smart:

    I see this stuff and my mind immediately goes to my friends. One of whom devoutly chose to wear a Dastaar (head wrap tied feminine style) It sickens me that people have the need to be so hateful.
