Hmmm well that's just an indication that the Church's teaching has been obscured - all the more reason to take the time to make it clear.

I don't know what the decree says but I imagine it applies to what women wear in public.

Why does it seem like the Church has directed many of these teachings toward women, while there are hardly any directed toward men? We wonder why it's not common sense for a man to not go waltzing around in a tight muscle shirt, and here we have it.

Probably because there were trends toward immodesty that the Church wanted to address at the time, and for whatever reason the Church has not seen fit to address immodesty at all in many years, and so hasn't addressed the recent trends in menswear.

What, camouflage bib overalls and cowboy boots are immoral? :shock:

Depends on where you're wearing them

Isn't that why the decree was written, to provide clarity?
