An Italian priest has announced a ban on midriffs during Mass (female midriffs are mentioned, but I sure hope this is equal opportunity....). I'm not sure this is ironic as much as a generally good and somewhat amusing idea, but check the last paragraph of this story:
Guards at major churches in Italy routinely keep out people wearing skimpy attire. But Father Felice says he resorted to the signs because his parish cannot afford guards to keep out the low-cut jeans and high-cut tops, newspapers reported Monday.Hired guards? Whoa.
Then again, I can't see the hospitality ministers at the door saying "Peace to all, and welcome to our community! Now get on a T-shirt, wench! Or else!"
