A little back story. I am in breast cancer remission... so my hair is about an inch or so all over after chemo.
So, I am at a smoothie shop getting something to drink, and some guy (another customer) comes up to me and says "God forgive you for cutting your hair so unfit for a woman" I look him in the eye and say, calmly "I am in cancer remission. My hair is just starting to grow back" His response "It's your fault you had cancer! It is a just punishment for being a sinful woman! You would not have had cancer if you were just!"
At this point, I walk out of the shop in tears, without getting my smoothie. I just did not know how to respond. I have prayed about it, but I am having a hard time not hurting over this! Any advice? Please?

Wow, that's horrible! Since the beginning of history Satan has wanted people to believe that God is like him: cruel and condemning. Satan's best tool is people claiming to know God but representing him as the Devil. Those were the kind of people who crucified Jesus! May God hold you in His arms during this time!
