MEN living on a tiny Fijian island have been ordered to wear a skirt instead of trousers on Sundays to avoid offending God.

Actually, Kilts are normal in Scotland during Catholicism and after Prots even...standard dress attire for banquets,etc....at least in past, soemtimes still...

Also, most Fijians classify themselves as Christian, Prot or Catholic:

Christian 64.5% (Methodist 34.6%, Roman Catholic 9.1%, Assembly of God 5.7%, Seventh Day Adventist 3.9%, Anglican 0.8%, other 10.4%), Hindu 27.9%, Muslim 6.3%, Sikh 0.3%, other or unspecified 0.3%, none 0.7% (2007 census)
