Because they are women. When I was a kid, almost all the women wore hats in church and I asked the same question. That was about 50 years ago. The rules are different for a woman regarding hats in situations like that. That's just the way it is and it is not disrespectful for them to wear a hat indoors or even in church. Just the opposite.
Of course, those bimbos you mentioned probably don't even know that. They just think they're getting away with something.

How about not removing hat when in church? Attended a funeral a while back where some guy didn't bother to remove his - thought it was in very poor taste.

my redneck in laws wear their baseball caps at the dinner table, they also serve themselves before everyone else sits at the table. they are young, stupid, ill mannered and their parents don't seem to notice or care.

i figured those who kept their sweaty caps on when the flag went by were too stoned or toasted to notice. wearing caps used to be a sign of baldness, then they were drug dealers hiding their hair color, now it's stupidity. and you can tell em i said so. :)

It's stupid to wear a hat? Or is it stupid to wear one in certain situations? My husband finds them quite practical. Keeps the sun out of his eyes and off his head. It also helps keeps the sweat out of his eyes while he is working. Of course he also knows where and when it belongs and dosen't belong.

many of our so called courtesies come from the bible. The issue of women wearing hats in church ect. and men not wearing them in the same situations comes from an interpretation of 1 Corinthians chapter 11 in the bible. I haven't stopped by this site in a while, hope you all are doing well.
Grace and Peace,
