MEXICAN PRIEST CONDEMNS MINISKIRTS
"A Catholic priest's condemnation of miniskirts on an official church Web site is causing outrage among some Mexican women, who say the Roman Catholic Church is making it easier to justify sexual violence against women.
The Rev. Sergio G. Roman sounded the alarm against miniskirts in an online publication to prepare Catholics for a church family-values forum next year in Mexico City.
'When we show our body without prudence, without modesty, we are prostituting ourselves,' wrote Roman, a Mexico City priest.'" Quotation from Associated Press/Mary Cuddehe.
Read the rest... including the News Blaze reporter's opinion of the Church, which sure sounds odd coming from a so-called Catholic country.
My sympathy is with the priest on this one.
