Death and trousers

Girls, be mothers, and in order to be mothers, let not wild horses drag you into shorts or trousers. When activities are proposed to you requiring trousers, if it is something your great-grandmother did, then find a way of doing it, like her, in a skirt. And if your great-grandmother did not do it, then forget it! Her generation created your country, your generation is destroying it. Of course not all women who wear trousers abort the fruit of their womb, but all help to create the abortive society. Old-fashioned is good, modern is suicidal. You wish to stop abortion? Do it by example. Never wear trousers or shorts.
Thus sayeth Bishop Richard Williamson, of the schismatic Society of Saint Pius X, which recently has been readmitted to the Catholic Church. Bishop Williamson also dislikes Jews, Freemasons and the Sound of Music. The full story is told by Batholemew.

On the surface, he seems mad as a maggot. Delve a little deeper, and he seems mad as a hatter.

And wearing trousers means it's easier for me to kick Bishop Williamson's arse.

He is effectively instructing my daughter to get pregnant at 16. Should I take umbrage? I think the skirt won't be an impediment to that particular plan anyhow.

(Little Lucia also has a great-great aunt she could model herself after. Well into her nineties, she said the following to my mother - who was in her sixties herself: "I don't know how you young women manage with the trousers and all the underwear. It'll take a billhook every time you want to have a quickie.")

The peculiar thing is that in Jesus' time, all men (and women) in the civilised world wore clothing of a skirt or dress-like nature, chitons, togas, kilts and what have you.

Bifurcated clothing, breeches, trousers, was what the barbarians of the north and west wore.

Any man who's ever worn a kilt knows that they are the garment of choice for freedom of movement and physical activity. In an intelligently designed fashion world, men would wear skirts and the bollock-free sex would wear trousers.

Anyone with his views on the Holocaust deserves to be classified as a maggot.

Solid advice from the bloke in a frock.

I've always found girls far hotter in trousers. Don't like dresses. Tried to get my partner to wear trousers for our civil union. I must be an unconscious abortionist...

Those retro-Catholics aren't the only ones objecting to trouser fashion crimes: http://www.presstv.ir/detail.aspx?id=83478&sectionid=351020401

Excuse me, what proof is there that he has enough taste to detest the Sound of Music- which, after all, was one of Mary Whitehouse and Patricia Bartlett's favourite films?
