Polygamists make their own fashion statement
For a society accustomed to the likes of Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan, the images of the women from the polygamist compound in Texas are almost shocking in their understatement: Ankle-length dresses, makeup-less faces, hauntingly uniform hair.

And while no one would accuse the women of making a fashion statement, the pioneer-style outfits are a rare example of how in an age of overexposure, modesty, too, can give pause.

The puff-sleeved, pastel dresses worn by the women in the sect are a combination of original 19th-century wear and 1950s clothing that was adopted when the church took a conservative turn, according to Janet Bennion, an anthropologist who studies polygamist women. ...

Indeed it is novel to find women in dresses who are covering skin instead of endeavoring to expose it through nakedness or skin-tight clothing. The latter being something taken for granted even in most churches today where even underwear (i.e. bikinis) are acceptable wear.

Certainly not in any way advocating the doctrines of the Mormons or these polygamists, but the attire of the women is very refreshing. It is sad that it is shocking to see women dressing like women instead of men where they dress modestly by not donning the attire of a harlot condemned in Scriptures.

Very tragic though that it is those outside of the body of Christ who are giving the world and MSNBC pause...
