Amy Unruh

I’m glad you added this page. I few days ago, I ran into an article condemning head covering, and in particular, the Head Covering Movement website and you, Jeremy. Many of these women were sarcastic, hateful, and disrespectful to men. The author’s tone seemed genuine at first and actually in support of head covering, but there was just enough in her tone of writing that indicated sarcasm and facetiousness, and at least one comment (I couldn’t continue to read) said that “of course the Head Covering Movement site is run by a man” (paraphrased). I like to see articles or quotes from women as well as men. They don’t seem oppressive to women when other women are in support.

Updated Dec 1/15: Elaine Mingus has been added to the team as a regular contributor in writing. Expect to hear from her monthly.


For me as a man it’s disgusting that a man proposes headcovering for women. Why not to let everyone to dress as they want to? What if women establish a “compulsory military service for men in Canada movement”?
It’s pretty weird that Christianity for some people is about telling other people what to do and what not to do, instead of themselves trying to be better persons. “I as a heterosexual man tell women to wear headcovering and I as a heterosexual man tell gays not to marry someone from the same sex”.
You guys really think that if God exists then he cares about what you wear?
