Mexican Priest Blames Rapes on Women Wearing Miniskirts

"A Catholic priest's condemnation of miniskirts on an official church Web site is causing outrage among some Mexican women, who say the Roman Catholic Church is making it easier to justify sexual violence against women.

The Rev. Sergio G. Roman sounded the alarm against miniskirts in an online publication to prepare Catholics for a church family-values forum next year in Mexico City.

'When we show our body without prudence, without modesty, we are prostituting ourselves,' wrote Roman, a Mexico City priest.'" Quotation from Associated Press/Mary Cuddehe

I thought that this type of sexist mindset no longer existed, even in the reactionary Roman Catholic Church.

The Catholic Church is giving rapists a green light to rape women and girls wearing miniskirts and other skimpy attire. The Catholic Church doesn't want females to express their sexuality, they are intimated by the fair sex. Is it any wonder that this Neanderthal institution bars women from the priesthood?

Clerics whether they be Islamic holy men who keep women fully draped in burqas or Catholic priests who bar them from positions of authority, should be anathema to feminists.

Will this idiot priest sound the alarm against little boys dressed in cute outfits because it will encourage priests to rape them?

Catholic parishioners should come to their senses, the church is no place for those who believe in the human rights and the equality of the sexes.
