No skin in Basilica

  Vatican law says that no one with bare leg or shoulders may enter St. Peters Basislica, meaning you must be dressed in long pants, and full shirts, which in summertime when big city gets hot and humid, this is so very uncomfortable for tourists.

Do you think this law it is fair, and people should respect, or is it ridiculous and people should be able to dress accordingly to the weather.

  it's no big deal cause i'm sure it's air conditioned. I assume this St. Peters Basislica is a church of sorts... so they should endure the heat of hell for simply wanting to listen to the garb' preached in there.

jobs require people to wear pants/collared shirts all the time as well

  When it comes to something like churches and their laws, there seems to be no room for questions. In places like that, you have a rule and it's fair because they say so.

But church laws aside, if a person really actually wants to visit a place, they usually shouldn't be too bothered by following any rules that come along with it.
I think it's fair to respect the rules of a place in which you are merely a guest.

Yes, you guys hit rigth on th mark, in mi opinion. If you are visitor, than you can respect rules. Especialy because there are just so much vendor out in front, saling paper pant to peopl so they can wear them into St. Johns, this way they would not have to dress in hot long pants all day, just pay $1.50 for paper pant, wear them while you are in therre, and rip them right off.

  $1,50 for paper pants?

I think it's the people who buy them who get ripped off

  Is there a dress code in heaven?
I wonder if it's air conditioned there?

I have this picture in my head of two large bouncer angels grabbing me by the shoulders and throwing me out cuz I'm wearing shorts.

  A few friends of mine went to Rome 3 or 4 years ago, and since it was so warm they all wore tank tops. When it was time to go into the cathedral they just pulled on long skirts (of a VERY light material) and t-shirts over their clothes. They just rolled them up in their backpacks that they were carrying anyway; took up no room and barely weighed a thing.
