    Police Called To Church Because Bald Marines Attend Services
    Authorities Notified After Veterans Attend Twice

    POSTED: 8:38 am EDT May 4, 2005

    RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. -- The strangers with shaved heads weren't skinheads -- they were leather necks.

    Parishioners at a Catholic Church in the Los Angeles area were a little nervous when three tough-looking guys showed up during services the past two Sundays.

    Sheriff's deputies were called to the church after the men visited the second time.

    But San Bernardino County sheriff's Sgt. Frank Gonzales said there was nothing to worry about. The three men are Marines who had just returned from Iraq. He said the men were very polite and explained they were just looking for a friend.

    Same here, although I can't say I'm military... Obvously they were mistaken about the men, and probably felt pretty stupid about it afterwards. But that seems an awfully hostile way to treat someone just because you don't know anything about them, based completely on their looks.

    At a Church = Ironic. Sounds like that preacher has his work cut out for him.

    We just finished a study at my church on ways we could improve our outreach. You think I should send them some of our study materials??

    definitely.

    as a former near-bald infantry guy I must say I'd be pretty offended if I was them. These guys have been "in the chit" and just want to go to church and they get singled out. Thats some crap. I wouldn't go leftist and file a law suit or anything, but I probably would find another church.

    Whoa there big fella. As a former Jarhead who was baptised by a Catholic chaplain, I'll have to say that the enviroment (California) had alot more to do with it than the religion.
