Quoting Quiverfull: Telling Someone Else To Cover Up?

Quoting Quiverfull: Telling Someone Else To Cover Up? July 26, 2015

quotingquiverfullby Trish Ramos from Fish With Trish – “Uh Oh!”

Editor’s note: Several stories at Ramos site that explain how she and one of her readers confronted and shamed women dressed in what they considered an ‘immodest’ manner. I can’t even… just horrified thinking of how badly the recipient of their tracts and unsolicited advice must have felt, ashamed, blamed and all sorts of negative things. Intolerance, hate disguised as love and a number of other things Jesus never said to inflict upon others.

Look, there are always things others will be wearing that someone else is going to find inappropriate. Recently I was at a church where one of the ladies near 50 kept wearing very low riding short shorts, so low that every time she got up or down during worship everyone behind her was treated to a view of her butt crack and tattoo. What did I do? Rush over and confront her? Nope, I averted my eyes and made sure not to sit behind her any more when she has on those shorts.

You know who else makes it their business to confront women on if their dress is modest enough? ISIS, the Taliban and other extremist religions I’m sure the original poster would have a problem with.

Join the “Uh-Oh” Club. And I’m not joking. I want to hear from you. Here’s what you can do, the next time you see a lady that is dressed in an immodest fashion: Hand her a tract and say something to the effect of, “Here, this is for you.” Or you can say, “Did you get one of these.” And then point to the immodest area and with a horrified look, say “Uh -Oh”. And better yet, perhaps you can talk to her. Either way, I’d like to hear what happens. Either send me an email or post below.

Confronting someone in this way is not easy. But don’t forget, that just like with evangelism, it will get easier each time.
