    And god said to the women "Thou shalt not wear a suit"
    (Can't remember chapter or verse)

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/acts-of-faith/wp/2017/10/12/church-denies-first-communion-to-fashion-loving-girl-because-she-wanted-to-wear-a-suit/?utm_term=.e9f84626014f

    A spokesperson said
    [i]Most people have dress codes at work. They have dress codes
    for other things. They’re in place for a reason: so that there’s a
    consistent, uniformly enforced dress code,”

    That is brilliant!

    "We have a dress code so that it can be uniformly enforced" 🙄

    Catholic understanding. An oxymoron.

    1 Timothy 2:9:

    "I also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, adorning themselves, not with elaborate hairstyles or gold or pearls or expensive clothes".

    It's not just a Catholic thing, it's a bible thing.

    The thing is - what she wanted to wear (a white tailored suit)
    was more modest than the dress they wanted her in!

    I found one Catholic site that said pant suits are acceptable attire for females. Perhaps it is a local church thing based on traditional attire.

    I can't see the link because a membership is needed for that particular story. The title in the URL mentions this was about a "Fashion-loving girl", which made it seem like an issue of perceived modesty.

    I'm not suggesting that it is Catholic doctrine.
    The "dress-code" is that of the local church.

    The title of the thread is misleading.

    It should have been Lack of Catholic Understanding
    but I went with the sarcastic.
