Well, I will confirm that the message does not come from home aloners or sedes, these are friends from Mass. What I am afraid of is that it is the orientation from a nun. I received an excellent response from a priest last night. he said that there is nothing wrong with discouraging jeans, but they should not be prohibited. The attitude that is exagerrated about what you wear sometimes seems very anti-modernist on the outside and lacking virtue on the inside. Young men and laity should take their advice from padres (priests) and not madres (nun superiors). Also jeans are made from cotton while slacks and dress pants are made from polyester, (so which material is more modern?).
Someone said that sinners wear jeans!!! Sinners do lots of things, like breath air and smoke cigarretes, drink beer, but these things are not prohibited.
Like I said originally, I think that it is an inculturation coming from converts from the protestant sects. Johovah's witnesses walk down the street wearing their uniforms so now some newbies who converted 3 years ago want to impose their will on all Catholics that we must never wear jeans.
The serious of the matter is that the email I receieved uses some interesting language.
For example, regarding modesty "we don't have opinions" and "submission" in "all occasions" the modesty must be submitted to "what the Holy Mother Church teaches" and as a "general orientation men must only wear dress pants and dress shirts".
So now I am being told that it is the teaching of the Church that I must never wear a t-shirt and jeans in my daily life, or I am a modernist, not submitting to Holy Mother Church.
Again any documents against this creeping puritanism would be very appreciated. If they want to be puritans they can go join the thousand something heretical sects that walk the streets.
