suitable to the occasion
By Diogenes (articles ) | Oct 14, 2009
The U.S. Bureau of Prisons applies the following restrictions to persons visiting inmates incarcerated in federal detention facilities:
Inappropriate/unauthorized attire is considered to be: transparent clothing; strapless garments; any garment which exposes the stomach or any intimate area of the body, tank-tops; halter tops; dresses, skirts and shorts which are shorter than four (4) inches from the middle of the knee; garments with obscene logos; low-cut blouses; obvious lack of undergarments.
So ask yourself: did the persons who presented themselves to receive the Eucharist at your parish last Sunday meet the prison decency code?

Obviously the Bureau of Prisons has no respect for the freedom of expression given by the adumbras and emanations from the First Amendment.

Well, nobody had on a t-shirt with an obscene logo---that I noticed. I admit I wasn't watching very closely.

Most of them were okay - there are always a few that probably would not be allowed to visit the prison...
