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.

I've protected the purity of men at Mass by not attending for about 40 years.

It is too much to ask men to control their urges apparently.

Especially priests with altar boys.

This wackadoodle Priest is preemptively asking women to wear the burka for the benefit of men, so men are not 'tempted'. How is this cleric any different from Muslim Clerics who impose a regimen of "modesty" (the burka) upon women.

It is all about the continuing blaming of "Eve" for bad behavior of men. It is about controlling women when ever the opportunity presents the possibility.

He should be warning the boys not to bend over.

Not understanding you. But I do know it's not our sides fault.Eve. Satan-serpent. Me waking up horny. It's like it was written in Prophesy or something.

I don't know what's going on in this priest's church; but she can't be serious. Have you ever seen a babe in tube top? Man! it always got my attention.

Hate to break it to ya Mr Priest man.

Men are not all that pure.

I would NOT let small children run around inside MY head.

That is for sure.

If he thinks some women need to dress more modestly...then say so.

But sex is everywhere in the secular world....the last thing I would worry about is how women dress in church.

I leave church and the first billboard I see is a plastic surgery ad.......

Another Catholic priest thinks having sex for fun is a sin.

I'm in favor of modesty at Church.

That being said I can see an attractive woman in a beekeeper suit and enjoy the view.

Perhaps they also need to cover up the half naked guy dangling from that cross behind the altar...

Unless it's with an underage alter boy.

Then it's fun fun fun!!

I wonder the reaction if women were to show up at mass in hijabs or burqas. Can you say 'religious bigotry'? I knew you could...

Old,

"This wackadoodle Priest is preemptively asking women to wear the burka for the benefit of men, so men are not 'tempted'."

And there are churches that require men and women sit on opposite sides of the building.

That's not wackadoodle. It's just their church tradition.

So what...what it's to you?

If these people are happy with it...why do you care?

Certainly I don't see anyone being oppressed or treated in a manner what implies they are less important then men.

However...when it comes to modesty...what's wrong with women showing a little class and little less skin?

i'm not an atheist, i'm an anti religionist and to an extent, precisely, in part, due to opinions like yours. let's start where you ended. who's to define what constitutes "modesty". why do men always place the onus of "proper" behaviour on the woman's shoulders. you cite separation of the sexes as merely tradition and not anything to be concerned with. in my opinion these are the opinions of a person who has what they consider a "live and let live" view of life but a large part of the "let" enables primarily men and in this case the clergy to repress the rights of women and children.
and as far as "what's it to me"...i would be less outspoken about the rancor i feel toward the religious if they paid their share. churches and clergy are a scam. it's politics whose constituency are the weak and fearful

Because the two are unrelated?

And who cares if that's how they've always done it. That simply means they've always been wrong.

Hardcore, unthinking, unquestioning religion is for freaks. Pathetic, brain dead freaks.

One of the sexiest things I ever saw was a hot woman in a full on black burka standing into the wind so as it pressed to her body. It was like a living trucker silhouette.

What a bunch of hypocritical nonsense. Purity, indeed.

Men spend most of their adult lives searching the internet, magazines and bars for women wearing as little as possible or, better yet, nothing at all. The more promiscuous looking, the better.

I seriously doubt they're going to be sexually overwhelmed by a bit of cleavage or a bare shoulder they notice six pews over.

It's the priest that has the problem in this story. Maybe even some dark secrets.

It's exactly the same. Maybe he needs to convert to Islam and move to Iran.
