Lol. I've shared many times about going to a 'holiness pentecostal' school when I was 16. Dresses down to the shoes and sleeves down to the wrists etc.

Us guys had to spend about 3 times as much time trying to figure out exactly what was going on under there - so it just made the 'problem' worse.

Lust is in the mind of the be-luster.

Think about the African tribes which go topless, and because they do - a peek at the breast means nothing. Here in the states its a big deal because it's forbidden in public. See how that works?

Sounds like you should. Saaaaave us by doing this!!! Please! (don't forget to cut some breathing holes so you won't die. Maybe on the top of the head so not too much beauty will get through and you won't "cause" us guys to sin).

I've come to a certain understanding in my life:

I am a man. I will make no apologies for being a man.

I have news for this whack job pastor, men think about sex constantly from the day we hit puberty until the day we die. It doesn't matter what a woman wears or doesn't wear. If a guy can't see a woman's body, he'll just imagine it in his mind.

Agreed. I don't think it's becoming for humans to act like dogs. Not good for individuals - not good for society.

Or maybe just a powerful kick to the crotch. Then look innocent and explain: "I'm just helping you not to lust too much"

Or mow the lawn... and take care of the kids.... Just saying.

I've heard of the book, but haven't read it. I try to stay away from anything that gets me too riled up these days. Taking a break from the heartache, confusion, and madness I guess you could say.
