These head bandages are not meant to cover physical wounds, but serve as an indication that some sort of trauma has taken place in the general area of the bandage and that others should be careful not to upset the remedy that is symbolically rendered on the outside surface.

The design of the bandage is quite simple and distinct from any actual religious headress, and is basically an adhesive strip of tape. By wearing Religious Head Bandages others will take care around the sensitive area.

       I'm sure I'm just being obtuse, and that this really is charming/witty/insightful - but I just don't get it.

       The idea is that religion is sort of a bandage on the trauma of existence, and mucking with the bandage becomes personally offensive because its a sore spot?

       Religious Head Badinage...a USB Baphomet head for your pc, with many poor jokes, coming to a home shopping channel near you..

       I sort of understand the idea, but it should be broadened to other emotional or traumatic wounds like a broken heart for instance. You can walk around for years with a broken heart and no one would know. I know because this happened to me. I don't know if people would act more sensitively or just ridicule you...( I gave a bun because it has some merit)

       Do you take it off when the remedy is well established in the victim's mindset with a slim chance of being altered or after the healing is complete and the symbol no longer needed?

       Actually in that exact scenario the prescription is more of the bandages.

       See I knew I was being obtuse.   

       I think the analogy of a crutch would have been more appropriate.

       //no one would know// If you want people to know, [xandram], I think you're supposed to wear it on your sleeve. That also makes it easier to attach the bandage.

       I think it was John Lennon who said "God is a concept by which we measure our pain". He hadn't thought about it very carefully, either.

       Most atheists wear these after discussions with religious folk, having banged their heads against a brick wall for the duration.

       Introducing the NMR handy, pocket-sized* polystyrene brick wall bit, ideal for multiple cranium impacts. Reversible for...the same on the other side. Only $9.99.   

       *Comes with the 6ft x 3ft pocket, simply stitch onto your own garments.

       I would think there was a market for an inflatable brick wall, folded very small, and instantly activated by a CO2 canister.
