1 Timothy 2:9
In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;
Dyker Neyland believes that "women adorn themselves in modest apparel" means that her 7-year-old daughter Javé should not be required to tuck-in her shirt. Her reasoning: "I don't want her behind showing," Dyker said. "I don't want her body being exposed."
Apparently the part of the verse that says "women adorn themselves ... not
with braided hair" can be ignored though.
Thomas Haley Elementary School (in Irving Texas) requires children to tuck-in their shirts as part of the school's dress code. Recently Melba Jackson cited the same verse at Barton Elementary School (also in Irving) to allow her daughter to wear her shirt untucked. Melba provided advice to Dyker in this ridiculous spectacle.
When Dyker went before the school board she also claimed "I feel I am being persecuted for being a Christian." And then went on to threaten the board with "There will be a day of reckoning, and you will have to answer to God."
A good cowing, a little fear of god speech, a technicality; and the board folded.
The school district apparently has a general dress code, and then allows schools to determine their own details. The district's dress code doesn't specify tucked-in shirts (nor does the parent's handbook); so the board felt it was not clear enough. The vote went 6-1 in favor of Dyker.
Dyker was raised Baptist, but is not even a church goer currently. Her reason: she "cannot afford to buy a nice dress." What an excuse!
