This post from Andrew brought to my memory a heated debate that transpired in ’99–should women at Baylor University wear jog bras on the Bear Trail minus a cover up? Yes, you just read that right. The controversy erupted–bringing in a wave of student responses, attempts at biblical exegesis to demonstrate the appropriateness/inappropriateness of job bra displays, and a whole host of fodder which the NoZe Brotherhood can mine for years to come.

Appropriate church attire is a more worthy discussion…I guess. At the very least, the presence of culturally deemed “inappropriate” dress gives us a chance to question our own degree of moral formation, and if we should follow Jesus’ advice to pluck out our own eyeballs on the occasion that we (men) lust after a scantily-clad female (Matt. 5:28-29).
