Being Sunnie

Women should have long hair, it says in the Bible, but most church ladies I know have short hair, dyed, teased, and hairsprayed.

An 8-year-old in Lynchburg, Virginia, was told she couldn't have short hair:  "her dress and her behavior need to follow suit with her God-ordained identity."


Fortunately, her family supports her being who she is and choosing whether to wear her hair short or long, whether to wear pants or a dress to school.

Hooray for Sunnie Kahle and her great-grandmother, who is her legal guardian.

Thumbs down to Timberlake Christian School.

By their standards, Jesus should have been wearing long pants instead of a dress.

Long hair is a woman's glory, according to 1 Corinthians 11:15, but it can't be braided (1 Timothy 2:9).

Would Sunnie be sent home if she wore braids?  Probably not.  

Most Christian women today have no problem with short hair or with braids, but this school decided to enforce first-century standards on an eight-year-old?

The unspoken agenda is trying to move this child away from clothing and hairstyles that suggest to some adults LGBT styles.

Thank you to Sunnie's family for going public with this pressure and discrimination.
