I am planning in getting into Law Enforcement but I am facing the dilemma that I have long hair and I'm worried that I will be forced to get a clean cut. Another officer declared himself part Native American and so has the right to have long hair for religious reasons. I declare myself as a Satanist but bigoted people may not accept this. I would really like to officially denounce my catholic association and join this instead and it would be really great if along with my membership that I can declare that due to my religion that I have the right to Individualism by form of growing long hair.
I'd love to see that conversation...
"...so you see, Sergeant, even though there aren't any actual religious requirements about hairstyle, Satanism is deeply rooted in pragmatism, individual responsibility, real life, and not whining about my own choices. There's a strong tradition of respect for authority, and another of being adaptable enough to work within existing social systems for my own ends. And that's
why I'm going to throw a huge tantrum over a haircut."
That should work great! Let us know how it goes, okay?
