A priest from Kerala wants women wearing jeans, T-shirt, shirt and all men's wear to be drowned in the sea saying all these were against the Holy Bible.
A video posted on Facebook by a user named Jasmine PK, shows the minister saying that women who arouse men by wearing attires that expose their body and wearing men's wear should be drowned in the sea with rocks tied. The video is going viral on Social media and it is seen that it has been taken from Shalom TV and posted on Facebook on February 25.
A rough translation of the pastor's speech can be given as:
"When I go for prayer meetings in some churches, especially during the Holy Mass, I feel like leaving because of some women who I see in front of me. I feel it's better to kick them out of the church premises.
They will wear jeans, trousers, shirt or T-shirts, and will have a mobile phone in their hands. They wouldn't even tie their hair. They do this get attention. I don't know why these "things" come to the church.
Here's my question to women - "Did the Catholica Church give you permission to wear what men wear?" Okay, let's keep the church away. Did the Holy Bible give you permission?"
Let me tell you what the Bible says. "Men should not wear women's clothes, women should not wear men's clothes. If you do, you disregard god." Will you get mercy if you go against god and then act in the church as if you're more devoted than your mother?
Many boys, after prayer meetings, come to me and say, "the moment we get out of the church we see women wearing half-nude clothes. We get aroused and slip into sin".
Bible verses say, "those who provoke you into sin should be drowned in the depths of the sea, with a rock tied to their bodies." If you [women] arouse men, you're the sinner.
The best suited attire for women is 'churidaar', but these days, when Satan enters them, women throw away the 'dupatta'. They walk around without shawls."
The things which he has said then can be summarised as:
- I found myself in an awkward position when I saw a girl in an attire exposing herself.
- I saw a case of a girl conceived from her own brother, and the brother told me that he couldn't rein himself seeing his sister wearing shorts and T-shirt.
- Will the god accept such girls who arouse their own father and brother b wearing such dress when they come to church?
The video has stirred an uproar on social media as progressive organisations and activists rigoruously came against the priest.
