Skip to comments.Are we Witnessing the Death of Modesty?

Every time I walk through the mall I feel this stab of pain in my gut. It also happens in Target, Wal-Mart, the doctors office, the grocery store; it even happens in church. I dont need medication for this pain. Its not a disease its grief. Im mourning the death of modesty.
Last week I read the most perfect definition of modesty on the website for the Archdiocese of Washington. Msgr. Charles Pope wrote that modesty is reverence for mystery. I cant imagine a better way to define it. And sadly, in our culture, the mystery is GONE. And with it has gone all reverence, dignity, and respect.
Im just so sick of seeing women on display everywhere I go. Its inescapable and its gotten trashy. I feel sorry for men today at least the men who are attempting to be gentlemen. Men are visual creatures by design, and now the poor guys can hardly raise their eyes off their shoes without being confronted by half-naked women theyre then not supposed to look at. Its more than inconsiderate; its irresponsible and disrespectful.

After getting an email yesterday with the latest pics of folks shopping at Wal-Mart, I’d say that modesty is dead and rigor mortis has set in.
I tell the girls in my Sunday School class “If the teen guys are noticing, so are the old men”. It really grosses them out.
Daddy always told me, “A man’s imagination is a woman’s greatest asset.”
Msgr. Pope is a great priest - used to be assistant pastor at my parish.
And then the women start talking.
I’m sure it’s been dead for quite some time.
Try taking three girls cloths shopping. It is painful for all of us. My girls are very modest, and the have the hardest time finding anything.
I’ll have to remember that line if I should be blessed to have daughters some day.
When my oldest son started high school a few years ago, I was shocked by what the girls wore to school. His school was “Hamilton Southeastern” but he said even the boys there called it “Hamilton Slutseastern” and “H S Sleazy.”
Geez, you might want to run that one by a shrink to see if you are doing more harm than good. ;-)
Why does anyone pay attention to these people? Their ideas are not helping society. The damage they have inflicted is obvious to everyone except their supporters.
“poor guys can hardly raise their eyes off their shoes without being confronted by half-naked women “
Yea, especially when I put my feet up at the tittie bar.
God did not create modesty when Adam and Eve were in the Garden of Eden. It was only after they had sinned that they were modest. Think about it.
Maybe if those “WalMart shoppers” didn’t have clothes, they would do something about their bodies! lol
Yes i agree with you btw do you have any more pics for research i am doing...
