If you get a chance, read Calvins exhortations on this as it sounds similar to what you heard. Calvin correctly anticipates the downfall of sexual morality beginning with head coverings for women to uncovered ankles, cleavage, belly buttons etc...
I do agree the covering issue is a component of the problem. Women started cutting off their glory in the 20's and is a component of the androgynous mixing of the genders, which is a part of the rise in sodomy.
In my understanding of this issue, the head covering for a woman is long, glorious, hair. I do not concur with the premise that a woman's covering ought to be covered by a cloth covering. This is not to say they should not wear a bonnet etc due to physical necessity but I do not believe it to be a spiritual necessity.
1Â Corinthians 11:15 - But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.

How many who are Christians don't even know what this word means? It's no longer part of the language because the Bible is no longer part of their lives. Folks familiarizing themselves with the definition of this Bible word might find themselves familiarizing themselves with the judgment of the city named after this behavior. Perhaps too, folks will start familiarizing themselves with the words that lead to sodomy such as lasciviousness.
The old time preachers at the turn of the 20th century warned women showing their ankles would lead to women showing their calves which would lead to the showing of the thigh which would lead to fornication and adultery which would lead to sodomy which would lead to pedophilia to bestiality and finally cannabalism. We are in the later stages of this process.
These preachers were able to warn because they had an understanding of the Holy Bible, people would hear the warning if they reacquainted themselves with the same Holy Bible these preachers had.

Excellent post and I wholeheartedly agree. To add to your comments, the word "sodomite" is found in the Holy Bible aka Authorized Version aka King James Bible. The modern Christians read from bibles that do not contain that Biblical word.

It's another Jesus, another gospel and another church.
The Roman Catholic Jesus is effeminate with long hair and has no brothers. You will not find that Jesus in the Holy Bible.
The Roman Catholic gospel requires keeping sacraments for eternal salvation. The gospel of the Holy Bible requires only belief in the shed blood of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins for eternal salvation (the RC says folks who believe like this should be anathema).
The Holy Bible describes Rome as a whore for it is a false bride or a false church. This church commits physical and spiritual fornication as it is drunk on the wine of her fornication.
Further, all the other false religions have much in common with the whore for they are her daughters. You can see this manifesting itself with the Fatima Hajs and RC pilgrimages etc. and you can see this as all her antichrist daughters are returning to their harlot mother and that mother opens her arms to them.

You are in blatant, unrepentant sin if you have anything to do with that whore when you are supposed to be part of the bride. This is particularly acute for you considering all the times, all the different angles and the many years you have been admonished regarding this.

Not only are these talk show hosts worn out old disk jockeys, not one of them in the mainstream is a sold out believer in Jesus Christ. On the whole they are primarily Roman Catholics, and Jews with a sprinkling of Mormons and other false religions. Yet, many Christians spend more time listening to these folks then they do listening to Godly preachers.

The SPLC and the leadership of the United States military are yoked up with the Kingdom of Satan. Christians are a threat to their Kingdom for it is Christians under the leadership of Jesus Christ who will overthrow Satan's Kingdom and bring forth the Kingdom of God.
Revelation 19:14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. 15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
Faithful Christians therefore represent a current and future threat to these powers.

Watchman, The below quotes distract from whatever arguments you are endevouring to make. Perhaps adding a bit of charity to your communications would increase the effectiveness of your argumentation and along the way glorify God a touch more? "Do engage your brain before posting again." "Bible reading and understanding are definitely not your forte!" "Not too great at logic either, are you?!"

As with all things it is important to understand God's timing and circumstances in each given situation. Clearly, there is a time for martyrdom as demonstrated by Stephen and others. Clearly, there is a time to put up thy sword as in the garden. Yet, there is a time to buy a sword a time to bear the sword and I believe a time to use the sword. What's the right play? If some gentleman comes into a church with a gun and yells Ally, Ally, Admiral Akhbar and threatens to put a bullet in a brother or a sister or their children. Does a strong, Christian, man duck under the pew, reach for his cell phone or defend the innocent?
