Today, for your listening enjoyment is Randy King expounding for us the doctrine of women sans pants.[audio:http://www.stufffundieslike.com/audio/britchesonwomen.mp3]
Sorry to disappoint Randy, but a little research would have revealed that if you go back in history the pants “controversy” was addressed as far back as 13 November 866, when Pope Nicholas I wrote to King Boris I of Bulgaria in response to a question about whether Bulgarian women should wear dresses instead of trousers:
‘Whether you or your women wear or do not wear trousers neither impedes your salvation nor leads to any increase of your virtue’ (‘sive vos, sive feminae vestrae, sive deponatis, sive induatis femoralia, nec saluti officit, nec ad virtutum vestrarum proficit incrementum‘ – Patrologia Latina, CXIX, 1002;).
Which, of course, only goes to demonstrate the complete moral bankruptcy of the Roman Catholic Church.
