I ain' really gettin into this whole discussion too tough... respek to all, it's all good whatever you believe as long as you ain' hurtin nobody... but is two things a waan ask:
If God didn't intend for males to grow long hair, why didn't God create them so that their hair was naturally short? (And a related point: Is it Y'Shua y'all follow- or Iyesus or whatever ya call him- or Paul? Or both equally?)
Secondly, I was curious to know more about the issue Blair raised about child brides. I noticed you (Nicholas) did not respond to that point but then you are not (directly) Ethiopian as you said so perhaps you're not familiar with it or don't wish to comment on it because you're not Ethiopian.
At any rate I would apprecilove more info on this issue. Sounds like something people should know about- I don't.
