Values Voter Summit Tells Women to Dress Modestly

The Values Voters Summit, presented by the Family Research Council, has been bashing President Obama, birth control and homosexuals all week, but here is something they are for: women dressing modestly.

ThinkProgress.org reports that an organization called Modesty Matters, which has a table at the Values Voters Summit in D.C., is passing out flyers admonishing women to cover up, especially in church.

Some of the advice for the ladies includes: “Since men are particularly visual, immodesty in church can trigger lustful thoughts” and “All women, whether married of single, are to model femininity in their various relationships, by exhibiting a distinctive modesty, responsiveness, and gentleness of spirit.”

Another piece of literature says “My men’s bible study group talks frequently about controlling our lust, thoughts, and eyes. Yes the problem and responsibility are ours, but is it really reasonable for the women of the church to make it this difficult for us?”

Modesty Matters was founded by a retired pharmacist from Roanoke, Virginia named J.H. Woolwine.

GOP vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan was one of the speakers at the Values Voters Summit this year, as was Rep. Michele Bachmann and actor Kirk Cameron.
