Vatican dress code swiftly owned by wise old woman

The Vatican has been cracking down on violators of their dress code. Members of the Swiss Guard have been drawing aside men in shorts and women without sleeves across the entire Vatican City State, not just St. Peter's Basilica like usual. This would be boring news if it weren't for the awesome quote at the end:
"Given all the scandals the Church has been involved in, what possible right can it have to be preaching about the morality of sleeveless dresses?" said one woman in her seventies.
Oooooohhhhhhhhh snap!


Just for shits and giggles, here's a photo of my mom and me in St. Peter's Square when we visited Italy 10 years ago. I would have been 12 in this photo:
Wait...NO SLEEVES?! I didn't realize my mother was such an infidel! How did we enter the basilica without bursting into flames?!
