Men Wear Hats In Church
  
This issue of head coverings seemed to be sight specific in Corinth (11:16) It is not sinful, rather dishonoring (11:4) How? I believe there were gender distinction problems at Corinth (much like today) Man is to be masculine (as he was made) to be otherwise is to dishonor His maker. Culturally in Corinth, women wore coverings for effeminate reasons (prostitutes - temple of Aphrodite - wore their hair down, Women who were gender confused - hair short or shaved)... so the Christians wore hair up and covered preventing misunderstandings publicly. Men here are being instructed to be distinctively men, not effeminate (covered head), women to be feminine, not masculine/prostitute/butch (equal - yes, but distinctive roles).
