A CASE FOR IMMODESTY Print E-mail
Written by Kevin L. Howard   

At least two factors work against me in my pursuit to keep my eyes and thoughts pure: being a man and living in Southern California.  I’m noticing more women showing off their cleavage these days. 

And who can blame them?  With all of the great deals on boob jobs and the ease of acquiring a tan on the beach, who wouldn't want to show off what they've got?  For nonbelievers, I try not to judge them too harshly.  After all, they have no motivation to dress modestly.  It's at church where I'm most tempted to judge.  But then I'm reminded that immodesty has many positive points.  Ladies save on the wear and tear of their knees when they bend at the hips; they also save cartilage and tendons by not placing a hand over the upper regions of their shirts when they stoop down to pick up their Bibles.  Never mind that they have a low cut top, they need their energy for other things, like talking on their cell phones in their Hummers.  Some of this immodesty must be due to genetics and can't be pinned on the individual women.  Certainly hips grow larger now than in the old days, so baggie pants are out of the question.  And women stand taller nowadays, so skirts can't quite make it down to the knees.  But then, some immodesty must be blamed on the clothes themselves.  Many jeans simply refuse to cover the butt like they once did; apparently denim only goes half way up now, riding low on the cheeks.  And shirts obviously shrink too much in the dryer so that belly buttons are forced to constantly stare at the gathered crowd.  I've learned to embrace immodesty and I'm sure you men will too.  And ladies, thanks for the help.
