I suppose that in such a tiny little town as mine, you really do need rules to cover every contingency. You never know what kind of weirdos from the city are going to show up.
Oh, and here's a quote from one of the books* on church history I'm reading:
"[17 year old] Origen was keen to follow [his father] into martyrdom, but his mother, evidently deciding that it was bad enough to lose her husband without losing her son as well, hid his clothes. Teenage modesty prevailed over religious enthusiasm, and Origen remained safely at home."
