What's up with church?

I attended a Catholic Mass this morning, and I was a bit disturbed by the apparent dress code.

In the service I observed girls (10-12 years old) going for Communion in mini skirts and other clothing that is more appropriate on a street hooker.

Adults wearing sports jerseys. Adults wearing moderately offensive attire. Shirts with totally inappropriate phrases, slogans and logos on them. The tamest example is, "I'm grumpy because you're dopey." Cute, but inappropriate in a religious setting.

I don't advocate 3 piece suits in church, but the other end of the clothing spectrum (short shorts and mid-riff tops) is just as bad, if not worse. We come together to worship, not to "style and profile."
