Josh Seeks Godly Wife

Meet Josh, a 26 year old Christian with some very definite ideas--falling somewhere to the right of Osama bin Laden's--about the specific sort of godliness his future wife should ooze.

Josh defends his many, many requirements with scripture. In arguing for 21st century cultural norms in women's dress, he cites Timothy, a barbarian writing in the Roman Empire:

In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;

Josh doesn't quote the next passage, but I thought it was funny anyway: But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

But back to Josh!

"Here are things I feel personaly are inmodest and not appropriate for women:

A shirt that reveals cleavage or shows your breasts
Skin tight clothing (shirt or pants)
Low riding or low cut jeans meant to show your underwear or stomach
2 piece bathing suits (way inmodest – how is this different than underwear?)
Tank top type shirts for women (a friend believes sleeveless is too much, but I think it’s fine)
Short shorts
Short skirts
Jewlery is ok, but not the point of being gaudy, distracting, or worn only to show your wealth/affluence
Skirts coming to withing a few inches of the knees and shorts below mid-thigh are probably fine… but I know that I don’t stumble near as quickly in this area as it seems most guys do, so maybe my thoughts are pretty tame compared to true modesty.

Full length skirts or stronger views are fine as well as well, I’m not sure a girl in this day and age can be too modest."

As I told Wordgirl, who turned me on to this eligible bachelor, I just wanna fill him up with Long Island teas and drop him off at a whorehouse!
