The St John the Baptist Catholic Church at Pedu, Cape Coast, Ghana, has banned what it describes as provocative dresses in the church by its members, graphic.com.gh reports. The church now posts pictures of unapproved dresses on its premises every Sunday.
The President of the church council, Andrew Kofi Wosesor, said the ban was necessary, as some female church members exposed their breasts and panties through the dresses they wore to church, an act which Christianity frowned upon. According to him, dresses that exposed vital body parts of women tempted some ‘weaker members’ and even some of the priests.
He said: “It is not that the dresses are not good, but they are not good for the church. In this era of fashion, some people easily get swayed by the naivety of what they see others wearing, without taking note of where they are going with what they are wearing.”…. for example, as we speak, ppl av started wearing bikini to church in Nigeria….
