A Catholic priest has called for women who wear jeans and other ‘provocative’ dress to be drowned for ‘tempting men’. The priest, identified only as Father Sharlom, says he does not want to give communion to girls in jeans, trousers or shirts. 

.

.

He even asks, in a rhetorical flourish, whether the Bible gives permission to women to wear these types of clothes. Father Sharlom continues to rant about how women should and shouldn’t dress during the horrifying sermon in a church in the southern Indian state of Kerala. 

.

.

A video of his rant was shared online by a woman named as Jasmine PK. In the footage, Father Sharlom is shown saying: “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.” He also criticises young women for showing off on social media and even refers to such women as “things”. .

.

.

He goes on: “After I lecture young men on the ways of God, they come to me later and tell me, ‘Father, after absorbing all the knowledge you give us, we exit and are exposed to semi-naked women. We’re involuntarily provoked and aroused’. 

.

.

What have the preachings taught us about this? ‘It’s best to tie the source of provocation down to the depths of the sea.’ When a father or a young man has come to the church to offer themselves to the God, if you’re standing beside him, having dressed provocatively enough to distract him, you’re a sinner, and you deserve to be tied down to the depths of the sea. 

.

.

And then you complain that you can’t find a groom or a job. Why? Thanks to the way you dress. Once a family brought their son who got his elder sister pregnant, to me, for counseling. When I asked him why he had committed the sin, he shared his sorrow with me. 

.

.

He told me when their parents left for work, it was just his sister and him alone at home. All he could see was her roaming around in her revealing shorts and tee.”
