    Long-standing rules on modest dress, previously applicable to St. Peter’s Basilica, were recently extended throughout Vatican City. For reasons of respect Swiss Guard officers have started banning members of the public from entering the city who wear “inappropriate” clothing. This…

    They've done this for sometime, apparently.

    I got distracted by the Spartacus-trashing article on the site. I want to see this whole series soooo badly.

    For some reason, the article doesn't load for me. The site asks me to sign up or something.

    Good article Michie. I used to belong to Catholic Exchange (from where the article came). I remember that they'd have great "Faith Promoting" articles.

    My problem is what constitutes "modest" and what doesn't? My priest were shorts to the church picnic--and he has nice legs. :p
    I never wear shorts, but I have a pair of jeans that look tight because the material has some spandex in it and they're very comfortable. But, I usually wear shirts that are long and flowing. So, I don't know if that would qualify as modest or not when I wear the jeans with it.
    Honestly, if the guys' a pervert, you could wear a gunny-sack and he'd still leer. So, some men have to start taking responsibility for letting their lustful thoughts run wild and not praying for a clean mind.

    Same for me. Couldn't see the article. Hence the reason I got distracted. :p

    I never think that what I'm wearing is inappropriate. But I also wear shorts, tanks, I even have a bikini (gasp! the horror!).

    The whole thing is so subjective. But, on the whole, I don't think that I ever put something on that is indecent or anything else (unless that is the point and I've maybe only done that once or twice).
