Cristeros of Mexico
I’m not ordinarily a fan of beauty contests, but this story is too good to pass up. The militant and evocative dress of lovely Miss Mexico has been making waves today. The skirt honors the heroic Mexican Cristeros (video link courtesy of Hallowed Ground). Predictably, the secularists are furious and have demanded that she “tone it down”. Poor Miss Mexico violated almost every rule in the Universal Handbook of Political Correctness. Just imagine: a modern beauty pageant entry celebrating traditional Catholic piety combined with temporal military strength, and replete with rosaries, scapulars, a full length skirt and no cleavage! (What might look at first to be a bare midriff is actually a brown ammunition belt.)
I’ll be scarce for a couple of days. See you next week.
