Whether you are Mormon or not, it’s a pretty interesting phenomenon that we are pretty much the only church that wears skirts/dresses to church exclusively, but wears pants the rest of the time (Orthodox Jews, Fundamentalist Christians, Amish: the women wear dresses all the time. If you aren’t one of these than you can wear pants, skirts or even–gasp–shorts to church).
Why is this? And will it ever change? It’s not in the doctrine. It’s not really even spoken about. It just is.
I’m over at Segullah talking about that today. I’d love to hear your opinions. If Segullah scares you, you can leave a comment here.
