It’s what comes from within that defiles

It’s what comes from within that defiles

On the topic of the “immorality” of women wearing pants, I’m let wondering if some people didn’t hear last Sunday’s Gospel (Mark 7:1-8, 14-15, 21-23):

“Nothing that enters one from outside can defile that person; but the things that come out from within are what defile.”

Another way of putting it might be, it’s not the clothes you wear that defile you, but who you are as a person. There are plenty of women lacking in modesty who wear clothes that cover up their figures and plenty of modest women who wear pants. Yes, there is a line that can be crossed in which we say, “That outfit is immodest,” but it’s where we draw the line that is the cause of controversy.
