R-rated homecomings prompt cultural clash

Andrea Morris, left, says some dresses at daughter Stephanee's homecoming last year made her blush.

When Andrea Morris of Clinton Township chaperoned her daughter's homecoming dance at Clintondale High School last year, it wasn't the dresses girls wore that made her blush. It was the lack of material.

That's why Morris, the mother of three, was relieved when Clintondale administrators implemented a dress code specifically tailored for the homecoming dance this Saturday. Banned: see-through dresses, plunging necklines and dresses with open backs below the waistline.

Last year, "there was a lot revealed -- a lot revealed," said Morris, whose daughters, Stephanee and Shannon, will attend this year's dance.

Welcome to the Eminem and Christina Aguilera generation. Hip-hop reigns, tank tops rule and "freaking" -- dancing suggestively against your partner in a way that sometimes looks like sex -- often is the dance of choice. ...

Many churches do not address the dress issue so many women cause distractions (sin) for men during worship. Then they take this same dress out into the world with the Pastors blessing and Christianity becomes a blur with the world. We are supposed to be different from the world and we are called to try to be holy. Most churches do not preach holiness because they are afraid people will stop comming. Jesus and the Apostles preached holiness and let the power of God do the rest. Preachers should preach the truth and then rely on the power of God to add or subtract to the church.

This is merely a sign of the lack of true Gospel preaching in our churches and subsequently the lack of true Christian holiness in the life of Christians. We cannot afford to "model" the world, nor to live according to it's standards. Just being "outraged" at the dress and living standards of our teens is not enough. We need to repent and have our children raised in the fear and nuture of the Lord, feeding them at home, at church, in society with the pure Word of God and breaking them off the junk food the world would have us feed them!

One thing that would help is if more preachers would go beyond just the "bless me Lord" preaching and get down to the more nitty-gritty stuff that's bitter to swallow, but good medicine. One of those is the New Testament advice on how women are to be dressed.
