Ladies: Rocco Grimaldi requests you “cover up”

HT to Mark.

Who is Rocco? He’s the California lad that the Florida Panthers selected in the second round of the 2011 draft.

And he’s a Christian who encourages gals to cover-up.

You can follow the college gentlemen on his Twitter feed (@RGrimaldi23), and here are the recent things he says to men and women.

First to women:

Ladies ur up 1st. Guys ur later on this evening. Sorry if anyone takes offense to what i post but i don’t feel bad about saying it. Ladies, you can help us guys out big time. Put your boobs away and everything else that is hanging out. Guys have a hard enough time with that temptation without u helping it along. When did being a beautiful girl become dressing with the least amount of clothes on? When did what u wear become a competition? Before you dress ask, “Does this outfit honor God, does it honor my body, does it help serve/love my brothers? If it’s a no to any of those questions, then u shouldn’t wear that outfit #ThinkBeforeYouDress

Then to men:

“Guys, when did sleeping with every girl u can make u a man? Anyone can lay with a woman. And don’t blame the women for how they dress. Don’t say it’s because they want attention. Don’t blame ur “curiosity” or that u just wanted a little taste of what it would be like. Women are not an object for playing with. Sex is a gift from God. We have made it idolatry by how we use it. We blame the women for what they’re wearing, we blame the media for what they’re producing, but we never blame OURSELVES for how WE’VE twisted God’s gift to only glorify ourselves. WE are the men and WE are to blame. God put US in charge of this earth so WE are the ones who need to man up and lay down our lust. Don’t fall into that temptation. If you don’t do this, you may be a boy for the rest of ur life #ManUp

    Rocco reminds me a bit of…ME, right down to the fact that he’s from California. True, sleeping around does not make a man my idea of a man(though there are people, male and female, who not only disagree, these folks even go so far as to call a male who has not had premarital sex by at least 21 a homosexual), and more people need to realize it. Also, I agree with his pleas to females to cover up. Females(adults and kids) need to avoid pants, shorts, and too-short skirts and dresses(that is, skirts and dresses not at least 2″ below the knee).

    My support for Rocco Grimaldi is unyielding. If what I read regarding reaction to his comment means anything, some want to have their cake and eat it too. They want to pin the blame ONLY on males, but call Rocco sexist and archaic because he wants gals to not dress like Kelly Bundy. He makes it clear he DOESN’T advocate potato sacks on females, but some people don’t care!

    I like the fact that it is pointed out that women need and should dress more modestly, we can’t accept and grow lax thinking harldy wearing any clothes is okay, those itty bitty shorts and skirts for example are so…dirty. I am young and I dress modestly. The way I dress is important to me and others, I don’t want to be a source of sin for others because of an outfit I am wearing!! I get compliments on my clothing all the time, I dress stylist, I dress in what I like and what matches me! I do not dress immodestly, with all the clothes and styles out there..there is absolutly no need to , the fact that one Loves and obeys God should be enough!!! Why some ppl walk around with extra tight jeans and their underwear visible is beyond me, the fact that some women wear extra low cut tops with just a bra under is tasteless, why some ppl walk into church with itty bitty shorts on and spaghetti straps is wrong. People need to invest in mirrors and proper fitting , modest nice clothes for ones figure. When I think abt the times someone has been inappropriate with me and I do not even dress inapprproiatly, and I know the kind kind of things they say to women who walk around with hardly no clothes on….they must be desperate for attention and it has to be the negative inappropritae kind and I guess they don’t mind…men do not take seriously women who flaunt all they have so they can be lusted after, When one dresses immodestlly u r leading others to sin, u r hurting ur soul, u r offending God etc, u r promoting sexuality, promescuity, indecency.Man or women but esp women. If one has a large bottom or breasts , okay thats fine, thats how ur body is, thats not a sin, but dressing to specifically highlight those areas in scadelous outfits is wrong, wearing TIght jeans for eample is a big no, no and its oh so tacky!! Please cover up your bodies ladies, flaunting it off is not want God asks us to do and flaunting it off only brings trouble…SIN…negativity, impurity…

      JB, what you said makes so much sense it’s scary! In fact, if what you said about members of your sex with large bottoms means anything, that’s all the more reason females should NOT wear pants or shorts! In fact, if a female wears skirts and dresses, male eyes are less likely to go where they ought not(such as, but not limited to, her bottom) than if she wears pants and shorts. God Bless you.

    To make a long story *very* short, I am a recent revert to Catholicism from Islam from Catholicism. (Whew, try saying that fast three times!)

    I feel very sorry for my Christian sisters as society (read, the media) mocks them for dressing modestly, whereas in Islam, I felt supported, both by a conviction that I was dressing in a way that pleased my Creator and also by a cultural norm of acceptance and pride in women covering themselves.

    I cannot tell you the glory of being back in the Church, and I am forever grateful for the prayers of (L.L.) whose rosary I still keep and whose devotions to Mary brought me back to Christ and His mercy. I am so happy and feel so blessed to be able to partake in the sacraments once again.

    I wanted to share just a little bit of my experience as a Muslim, in the hopes that this will bring encouragement to my fellow Christian Sisters to try this experience of covering up and covering their hair with a scarf when going out. Just to define terms “Hijab” means both “a scarf” and “dressing modestly”.

    The reason behind wearing hijab and covering is not as an arrogant show to outsiders, but as an inner candle of conviction that one’s self is precious to God, and should not be paraded around like a plucked chicken wearing lipstick and high heels.

    Wearing the hijab was a liberating experience. Men didn’t look me up and down anymore. They looked me in the eye if they looked at me at all. I felt like Aretha Franklin was following me around singing “R.E.S.P.E.C.T.!” I felt safer on the sidewalk with my hijab wrapped, covering my hair, my neck, bosom, and back, and my loose and comfortable dress.

    Men held open doors, stood up to let me have a seat on the overcrowded bus, gestured for me to go ahead of them or even pulled out my chair at lunches. I didn’t feel as threatened or challenged as I used to on City streets as a woman. I realized that I could “guard my gaze” and that I didn’t have to rise to the provocation of strange men trying to get my attention. My garb signaled to them that I was a “NO RIGHT-OF-WAY” street.

    I find myself MUCH better behaved in pubic as a hijaabi. I know that people may be judging my faith based on my actions, and that makes me more patient, helpful, and (hopefully) kind. Sometimes a scarf is just a scarf, and sometimes, it’s an important symbol to the world.

    Religion is a matter of submission to God. On Judgment Day we will all be spiritually naked before our Creator. And believe me, I would rather be hot on a sunny day in a long dress with sleeves, high neck and a big scarf than burning in Hell for all eternity.

    Yours in Christ.

      The fact that you are a revert to Catholicism from Islam should put a Catholic born and raised former NBA player born Lewis Alcindor on notice and follow in your footsteps and leave Islam.

    “Religion is a matter of submission to God. On Judgment Day we will all be spiritually naked before our Creator. And believe me, I would rather be hot on a sunny day in a long dress with sleeves, high neck and a big scarf than burning in Hell for all eternity.”

    Thankfully, God doesn’t ask us to swelter in long sleeves, high necklines, and big scarfs or risk going to Hell – only non-Christian, non-Catholic cults teach such nonsense.
