Modesty, Is it important?

Is the world beginning to recognize that our hyper-sexualized culture is destructive?  Jennifer Moses, writing in the Wall Street Journal asks, “Why Do We Let Little Girls Dress Like That?” I am glad to see articles like this coming from secular sources because it seems to be something that we are uncomfortable talking about in churches.

Parents, read the whole article, but consider well her conclusion,

…We wouldn’t dream of dropping our daughters off at college and saying: “Study hard and floss every night, honey—and for heaven’s sake, get laid!” But that’s essentially what we’re saying by allowing them to dress the way they do while they’re still living under our own roofs.
