This past sunday my pastor preached on women's appearal. What's appropriate. He stated that pants, short skirts, or anything reveling is the reason women are attacked (raped).
I completely disagree with this though this is not the first time I've heard comments like this directed at women and their clothing.
I would like to hear some of your ladies comments on this subject. I'm pentacostal and always have been. I've just always struggled with the rules of dress for women.
No make up. (You don't want to be like Jezabel)
No skirts above the knees.
No cutting or dying of the hair.
No nail polish.
No perfume. (especially Victoria Secret)
No pants. (Women aren't suppose to guird their loins)

I was raised Christian ( baptist). When I was Christian, I followed those rules exactly so did my mom and sister. This comes along with being committed to Christianity. Our reasons for abiding by those things were different than your preacher's, he is obviously ignorant. Of course I don't believe it is right, that is one of the many many reasons why I am not Christian.

To lay the blame on women who are attacked by how they are dressed is wrong. Rape is about power, control, humiliation, not sex. So what you are wearing matters very little.
I would run not walk away from that church as fast as I could.
