Cover your toes in the house of God

Lakewood Yid-I have no problem with a guy walking into shul in Flip Flops to pray to G-d.
Zero, zilch, efes, nada, cero.


About a year ago, members of the Northwestern University's champion women's lacrosse team visited the White House and and met President Bush. Some of them wore flip flops.

Below is a collection of comments from various websites:

"but many people, including relatives of the athletes, questioned the propriety of wearing flip-flop sandals to meet the president."

"Don’t even ask me about the flip-flops," said her mother. "It mortified me."

"This is the buttoned-down, dignified Bush White House, where the president has forbid jeans and required neckties in the Oval Office and women are instructed to be "appropriately dressed."

"But Wood worries the arrival of flip-flops at the White House is a sign that respect for even the nation’s most sacrosanct institutions is waning."

"Definitely a faux pas," says Suze Yalof Schwartz, executive fashion editor-at-large of Glamour magazine, telling The Early Show co-anchor Hannah Storm, "It is just inappropriate

"They're great for hanging out with your friends. But they're clearly unprofessional. And if you're going to the White House, cover up your toes."

AND IF YOUR GOING TO THE HOUSE OF GOD??? THE KING OF ALL KINGS???
