  • Supreme Court refuses to hear 'Free the Nipple' appeal in New Hampshire case

    The Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear an appeal by three women arrested for violating a New Hampshire city ordinance by exposing their breasts in public as part of the so-called "Free the Nipple" movement. The rejection leaves in place a 2019 ruling by New Hampshire's top court that upheld their convictions for violating a Laconia, N.H., measure that prohibits female toplessness in public. The women -- Heidi Lilley, Kia Sinclair and Ginger Pierro -- argued the ban violates the Constitution. The ordinance makes it illegal to uncover female breasts “with less than a fully opaque covering of...
  • Kim Kardashian says she's had an 'awakening' about dressing 'too sexy' because of Kanye's influence

    Kanye West recently aired his views about his wife Kim Kardashian's skin tight Met Gala dress and although she rebuffed him at the time, it seems like she's given it some thought and is coming round to his way of seeing things. The reality TV star told The Cut that she's had an "awakening" about her clothes choices and nudity in general. In addition to her husband's opinion of what she wears, it seems raising four young children is also giving her some food for thought. It goes even further than that too, as she even owned up to being...

    Church for Men ^ | May 28, 2019 | David Murrow
    A few weeks ago an Indiana mother wrote a letter to the Notre Dame University school newspaper, asking women not to wear leggings to Catholic mass. After sitting behind a group of girls in church with her four sons she wrote: I was ashamed for the young women at Mass. I thought of all the other men around and behind us who couldn’t help but see their behinds. My sons know better than to ogle a woman’s body — certainly when I’m around (and hopefully, also when I’m not). They didn’t stare, and they didn’t comment afterwards. But you couldn’t...

    A Catholic priest took to Twitter to ask women to dress modestly for church services to “protect the purity of the men”— and people online are not having it. Father Kevin M. Cusick, an ordained Catholic priest and veteran, wrote a tweet addressed to “ladies,” writing that a fellow priest was “forced” to ask a woman at a Catholic mass to cover her shoulders. Cusick went on ask women to “please help the priest to protect the purity of men at holy Mass by choosing to dress modestly.” Cusick added, “The alternative is awkward for all involved. Thank you.” Ladies,...
  • Group slams Chertoff on scanner promotion

    11/14/2010 7:21:19 PM PST · by george76 · 9 replies
    Since the attempted bombing of a US airliner on Christmas Day, former Homeland Security secretary Michael Chertoff has given dozens of media interviews touting the need for the federal government to buy more full-body scanners for airports. What he has made little mention of is that the Chertoff Group, his security consulting agency, includes a client that manufactures the machines. Chertoff disclosed the relationship on a CNN program Wednesday, in response to a question. An airport passengers’ rights group on Thursday criticized Chertoff’s use of his former government credentials to advocate for a product that benefits his clients. ... In...

    A female Democratic lawmaker on Wednesday reportedly said women who wear revealing clothing often create an “invitation” to sexual harassment. “I saw a member yesterday with her cleavage so deep it was down to the floor,” Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-OH), 71, told fellow Democrats during a caucus private meeting meant to discuss sexual harassment issues, according to Politico. “And what I’ve seen … it’s really an invitation.” Politico’s unnamed sources said, “the comments left many others in the room stunned.” “Maybe I’ll get booed for saying this, but many companies and the military [have] a dress code,” Kaptur reportedly said....

    The Secret of Modesty Msgr. Charles Pope • April 27, 2016 • The following post contains some adult content. There is nothing inappropriate, but it does speak frankly to an aspect of sexual desire. Exercise caution if reading it to younger children.There is a secret, once known and widely shared among women, that the best way to get and hold a man’s attention is through modesty. Near nakedness can get a man’s attention, but it is modesty that will hold it.Why is this so? It is because mystery is powerfully attractive. It entices; it draws and holds one in...

    FULL TITLE: 'We don't want to make a man uncomfortable in church': Mother says she was told to leave a CHURCH for breastfeeding A breastfeeding mother claims she was escorted out of a church service in Virginia and was told: 'We don't want to make a man uncomfortable in church.' Annie Peguero has posted a video on Facebook about her treatment on Sunday at the Summit Church in Springfield and said she would never go back there. Peguero, a personal trainer and military wife, said a church official told her: 'We don't want to make a man uncomfortable in church,...

    Trend analysts have dubbed what they interpret as a new wave of feminism the "pluri-empowerment" factor, says Iza Dezon, a trend forecaster at Peclers Paris. "An empowered woman is no longer subject to a specific definition, nor must she live by a specific set of values," she explains. "We're seeing the opening up of what empowerment means, allowing women to create their own definitions." The modest movement has been gaining steam for a few years now and the hijab has become a recognized symbol. In 2014 DKNY launched a bespoke modest fashion collection. In 2016, Dolce & Gabbana released a...

    First there was the burqa, then the burkini and now comes - the burkirndl. A woman in Germany has modified her traditional Bavarian dress - called a dirndl - after converting to Islam. Renate Hoffmann, 63 from the small village of Fensterbach was once like her neighbours: God-fearing, Christian worshipping, singing in the local choir, enjoying a beer at the local festivals and sporting the dresses designed to showcase the female figure.

    Modesty and Beach Volleyball Msgr. Charles Pope • August 14, 2016 • One of the less edifying aspects of the Summer Olympics in Rio is the attire of the women’s beach volleyball players from Western countries. Most of the women wear a tiny bikini with the bottom being especially tiny. (I do not show a picture here because I deem it immodest to do so. Instead, I show a picture of some of the men, whose attire I mention below.) Embed from Getty Images  Frankly, playing volleyball in a tiny bikini seems quite unnecessary. I would argue that it...

    Katherine Haik’s one-year reign as Miss Teen USA ends Saturday evening in Las Vegas. An active member of her youth group at First Baptist Church in Franklinton, Louisiana, in 2015 Katherine became the youngest-ever contestant to win the pageant. Alas, the then 15-year-old high school freshman did not earn her victory without making a certain compromise – disregarding the Scripture advising that “women should adorn themselves in respectable attire, with modesty and self control.” Well, one needn’t be prudish to wonder whether sashaying across a stage in high heels and a teensy bikini fits the Biblical definition of “modesty.” Especially,...

    Fathers and Daughters – Is This a Missing Key to Modesty Today? By: Msgr. Charles PopeWe often speak today of the terrible toll that fatherless homes have on young boys. And this is true. Without a reasonably good (even though not sinless) model of manhood and responsibility, many boys lose their way. Fathers also play a large role in disciplining boys, especially as they grow older and become  stronger than their mothers.But missing fathers also bring forth terrible effects on many girls. Women, even young girls, certainly do seek and desire the love and appreciation of men and have...

    Yoga pants are under attack. Lately, they have been a hot topic on Facebook, blogs and other corners of the web. Some say they are too tight. Others complain that we, as a society, have lost all sense of modesty. The question has been posed: Should women wear yoga pants in public? For one state legislator in Montana, the struggle against yoga pants is real. No. Seriously. From the Billings Gazette:

    Traditional Catholic Priest ^ | 9-28-14 | Fr. Carota
    In this blog I want to show that sexually provocative clothing can lead to sexual activity. The lust that provocative clothing causes, is for sex, for pleasure outside of marriage, and not to bring a child into the world. The type of sex that this could provoke, based on lust, could lead to an un-wanted pregnancy. And this pregnancy could end with the unborn baby being murdered at an abortion mill.As many of you know, the 40 Days For Life has begun again. I went to pray the Holy Rosary where they kill unborn babies this morning after Latin Mass....

    History of Head Covering and ScriptureFor over 2000 years Christian women have covered their heads during Mass, sacred rites, as well as prayer and adoration. In most instances this was done by wearing a veil, as it tended to be the most convenient way. It was not until recently that many women stopped wearing the veil or any head covering for that manner. This is true especially during the post Vatican II epoch and during the women’s lib movement during the 1960s and 1970s.Old TestamentIn the book of Genesis 24 when Rebecca meats Isaac she veils herself. “Rebecca too looked...

    The fact that neither Hillary Clinton nor State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki can name a single significant achievement of her tenure as Secretary of State may not be as devastating as it first appears. “First of all, Secretary Clinton is a very modest person,” Psaki claimed. “It’s really hard for her to toot her own horn. So, there could be lots of things she’s done, but doesn’t want to boast about.” Psaki defended her own reluctance to enumerate even a small number of the former Secretary’s accomplishments as “a tribute to Mrs. Clinton’s self-effacing personality and for reasons of national...

    On the Imprudence and Uncharitableness of ImmodestyBy: Msgr. Charles Pope The video below contains a  fascinating interview between Sean Hannity and two women on the question of immodest dress as a dangerous thing for a woman. It would seem that a Toronto police officer was quoted as saying, “Women can avoid rape by not dressing as sluts.” He said this in the context of a lecture to college students about a recent campus crime wave. He has since apologized, but some will not accept it, or do not think he was specific enough in his apology. His remarks have...

    What do you expect from your relationship to Jesus Christ? I have come to discover that many do not expect all that much. In effect they hope that faith can kind of help them “muddle through” life and offer them a few consolations that, perhaps things will be better some day, and in heaven. Others see the moral life described in the scriptures more as a duty than a description of the person being transformed by Jesus Christ. And because they see it as a list of duties,  rather than the result of grace, they tend to resent it, consider...
