    Seems to me that God never said thou shall dress up in gang colours , distinct uniforms that represent your beliefs .
    Until you all accept that we are all the same and not worry about the subjectiveness of what you wear , you will always be at war with beliefs .

    The Torah prescribes certain clothing requirements. I'm sure other texts do too.

    In my religion God actually did prescribe specific manners of dress to the Church in the OT (like how gloriously He adorned Aaron and his sons). Distinctive dress usually comes from the various beliefs and their expression at a particular time and place (like why Orthodox monks dress like Constantinople just fell).

    Also God just likes drip:

    Hello ma dear , forgive my formal manner . My doctor prescribes medication it does not mean I have to consume the medication .
    Sometimes microwave food varies in cooking time from what it says on the packet .
    I imagine you are pretty smart and get the point , in socialising with different stereotypes a uniform is a sign of wanting to be different .

    Actually that song is unrelated and inapropriate because it shows no respect for beleif .

    Sorry nearly posted a neurological attack , but this is more appropriate

    Yo, the Gods tell us to dress a certain way, but not to tell others how they should dress.

    And uniforms are a good way to show hierarchy within an organization. So a Father's Collar, or the Pope's hat, give you an idea of where they are within the church and what services they may provide.

    Likening that to "gang colors" is disingenuous.

    Uniforms are a good way to Neurologically Control your intended influenced . The intention is to make you feel all the same , taking away your Neurological Diversity and personal choice .
    In the country I live in they start this process from an early age , school childen forced to wear a uniform .

    Not in my opinion or experience.

    I was part of an organization where I was not allowed to hold opinions, and had to wear a uniform that showed my organizational position (the US military).

    But that didn't take away my individuality or diversity. In fact, it made me strengthen it. By having to show it in ways that weren't covered by uniform or lack of other choices.

    Sameness and cohesiveness is not the same thing as brainwashing (what you call removing neurological diversity). A group being identified by a type of dress, doesn't negate our sameness, or our uniqueness.

    The red car and the blue car had a race , if red wasn't a red car , on the race track there is no winner .

    The armed forces require a difference in clothing but in reality the armed forces aren't required for war if the world can just make very simple agreements .

    All countries can agree on a few things ,

    1. All countries are a part of the earth
    2. Earth is our home in the solar system
    3. We do not want to destroy Earth because that destroys our future
    4. All humans are equally born with an empty neurological refererence frame
    5. All humans experience Neurological Simultaneity
    6. All differences of opinion are relative

    Peace dude , Salam dude , God just answered what is required for world peace and humanities survivial

    Perhaps you did but that is beside the point ma dear . You look of young age and are a forum moderator which suggest you have great thinking ability , even if only in regards to religion . I am always fascinated by smart people who may present a challenge to my own neurological reference frame , I am yet to meet my match .
    Are you smart ? Tell me what is the objective purpose of a uniform ?

    To make all children feel included.

    To make them all feel part of something.

    To make them not bully one another over the 'status' of their clothing.

    To not direct attention to clothing in a place designed for academic study, not fashion or sexual displays.

    People are tribal. It's innate. We like our symbols of affiliation -- and difference.

    God told me I don't have to wear pants, especially when posting on religious forums.

    God told me I don't have to wear a shirt here. Looks like we each got half of the message, or maybe it was meant to be split.

    I have a direct line to exact logical interpretation of the truths where ever these interpretations may come from .

    Then where did you get these answers God so conveniently left lying around? Since you did say "God answered what to do.."

    Well quite frankly I think about something and new information just updates in my neurological reference frame , I think I will name this process ,Neurological Autoism .

    Where these thoughts come from is an unknown origin although I suspect it is because my neurological reference frame doesn't experience neurological simultainety
