I just read an aritcle in the news about a young girl receiving a religious pamphelt from her drive up window customer that contained this:
"You may have been given this leaflet because of the way you are dressed,” it begins. “Have you thought about standing before the true and living God to be judged?”
It continues with one essential theme: The sins of men are, in part, the fault of women, specifically women in tight-fitting clothing. Yates was annoyed. Then she got to a section on page two:
“Scripture tells us that when a man looks on a woman to lust for her he has already committed adultery in his heart. If you are dressed in a way that tempts a men to do this secret (or not so secret) sin, you are a participant in the sin,” the leaflet states. “By the way, some rape victims would not have been raped if they had dressed properly. So can we really say they were innocent victims?”

What! Are children playing in their bathing clothes or naked a participant in a child molesters sin even if that molester just THINKs about the child badly?????????????? Common sense shouts a big fat NO!
Bad dress does reflect badly on our personal morals (we use dress to express ourselves after all and that would be pointless if some 'message' couldn't be attached to certain styles and choices). But a woman walking the streets naked while being a "cause for stumbling" is not without rights. One of those rights being the right to CONSENT to sex or not. She may look 'loose' and likely to want casual sex BUT SHE IS STILL MISTRESS OF HER OWN BODY AND MIND!!!!!!

Anon 59: There is nothing in the post about how she was dressed. It says she worked at a drive through, chances are if it was a fast food chain, she was in a uniform. You're making judgements based on information that you do not have!
OP: I think it is disgusting! That is why I would never consider Christianity. It is far too restrictive for my free spirit.
