I just happened to find your website with Google search engine.
I hardly could believe my eyes when I saw the page about modesty.
I mean, yes, this is exactly what EVERY preacher in the western hemisphere has been preaching - and the people obeying - between 0 AD - 1920 AD.
But since the two World Wars, this kind of moral teaching has so completely vanished from among western mankind, that I was honestly surprised to find any of it on the Internet.
Some related pages from my own website:

Dear John Joe Mittler
Thanking you for the contact.
YES! What you are saying is so true, after WW 2, men became pusillanimous, i would say Garden of Eden 2, revisited.
Well it looks like that God indeed has reserved 7000 men for Himself that have not bent the knee to Baal.
incidentally do have a look at this sermon of mine:
i gave this sermon to my church recently and the whole assembly got into a mad Tilt. when i finished, one of the elders launched himself into a counter-sermon that lasted longer than mine i risked being thrown out of the church.

If I went out on the street to express my opinions, most of the people would begin their counter-sermons. There is nothing surprising about that: people have their opinions, mostly borrowed from the television. More seldom from the Bible.
I see a direct connection between the introduction of Hollywood-produced television into people's homes and the quick decline of all real authority from the pulpits of churches. Television came in during the sixties, and at the same time were seen the last pants/skirt debates in major churches, the previously unheard-of V-cut swimsuits came to stay, women began careers as preachers, and so on.
If Hollywood preaches to people 30 hours a week, and the pastor of church only 30 *minutes* a week (that is 60 times less!), it is clear that Hollywood gets the final say in everything, as has been seen.
The only true problem is to maintain a community in which the clear majority supports Biblical views. If the clear majority of a church supports the gospel of Hollywood instead of the gospel written in the Bible, then remaining inside such a community only brings trouble upon trouble.
You cannot change the "world", and when the "world" is inside a church as the clear majority, then you cannot change the church any more. It is a goner. New wine to new wineskins.
