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.”
