School’s dress code for prom raises ire

Here is a perfect example of what’s wrong in America. I almost fell off the sofa while watching this morning’s news, when I heard a woman make one of the dumbest comments I’ve ever heard in my entire life. The comment was regarding the enforcement of a school’s dress code for the prom night, where girls were to be required to send in photos of themselves wearing their dresses, to keep them from being turned away at the door on Prom Night for wearing an inappropriate gown.

I totally see the logic in the school’s requirement, because today, there is no morality, and some people see nothing wrong with the way their children dress as they attempt to emulate Hollywood standards where “evening dresses” resemble skimpy beach wear, designed to not just attract the opposite sex, but to drive them crazy with desire. (Ironically, this train of thought completely contradicts women’s wishes to NOT be “sexualized”….) High school students with their raging hormones don’t need to be enticed with the “street walker look.” They need guidance on proper dress and behavior and self-control!

Yet, we have parents out there who apparently aren’t smart enough to understand “morality” and “proper behavior and dress codes,” and who are allowing their children to redefine these terms according to their own immature, carnal desires.

Paraphrasing, this “expert” in the news story (Rosalie Whiteman) insists that it’s wrong for adults to perpetrate their dress codes on young kids because it is shaming them about their bodies.

REALLY? What else are ADULTS for, but to TEACH children and keep them safe?

Mark 7:20-23 And he said, “What comes out of a person is what defiles him. For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, coveting, wickedness, deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within, and they defile a person.”

1 Corinthians 6:9-11 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. (ESV)
Acts 5:29 But Peter and the apostles answered, “We must obey God rather than men. (ESV)
Galatians 5:19-21 Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. (ESV)
1 Corinthians 15:33 Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.” (ESV)
Revelation 21:8 But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.” (ESV)

  1. I believe the people who live and practice degenerate and reprobate ways (Romans 1:18-32) fear the coming judgement (Tsephanyahu 2:11, 2 Kepha 3:5).
