another cardinal-elect, another comment on sexuality

By Jeff (articles ) | Sep 28, 2003

One "sexuality issue" about which the Nigerian cardinal-elect has spoken is feminine immodesty. Decrying the "degrading morality in the Catholic Church, particularly among the women," Archbishop Okogie of Lagos (according to this article) preached against immodest attire and "implored those in this kind of habit to stop, saying that he wondered the morals they would teach their children if they themselves were found wanting by the lives they lead."

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Yeah ! Why do some of them even bother to wear anything at all?

    Totally agree with the Archbishop. Here in the U.S. the way women dress for Church is appalling (and men too).
