Now, be it far from me to make any complaints or whatnot about religion, but I realized something this morning as I went to the gas station to get my
daily Dr Pepper.
As I pulled up, four late teens/early twenties stepped out of their car (two guys, two girls). They all were clearly church goers; the guys wore very
nice suits, the girls wearing short dresses with black nylons, hair all in place, make-up all pretty-like.
Here, then, lay my thoughts.
Why is it that women (in general), dress up more... scantly... than any other day during the week? Don't get me wrong. I love the way women look...
calm down... I do drawings/paintings and carvings/sculptures as a hobby. But what was puzzling me is the fact that these same women normally go about
the week with the attire and attitudes of 'don't look at me', yet, as they go to church, almost seems as if they crave the attention.
I know they were going to a catholic church... those are the only ones where I live, and they were locals, so I know the Catholics (officials) take
great measures to judge by appearances. But, it just made me wonder.
In the Book of Enoch, it addresses the concerns of women not to doll themselves up, least they attract the angels again. And, I remember going to
church as a young teenager, fondly looking across the room at the ladies.
So is church nothing but a place of lustfulness?
I guess it could be. Why not? Priests do some amazing things there... why can't we?
Oh well... this concludes my ramblings.
