I was having so much fun at this BAD VESTMENTS
blogsite - what with the funny pictures and combox comments, and coming up with some Catholics-have-better-tastes-than-that thoughts, namely:
1. Are bad vestments a sacrilege, or are they a mere liturgical abuse?
2. One reason women can't be ordained priests is that they just don't look good in male attire. If they can, some fashion designer will just have to come up with a bishopess miter. (Please roll down pages to see miter samples.)http://badvestments.blogspot.com/2009_0 ... chive.htmlhttp://badvestments.blogspot.com/2012_0 ... chive.html
Not exactly what I mean.http://badvestments.blogspot.com/search ... results=35
3. But honestly, even non-bishopess priestresses look funny in funny priestly vestments.http://badvestments.blogspot.com/2009/0 ... -tree.htmlhttp://badvestments.blogspot.com/2012_0 ... chive.html
3. Equal opportunity tack. Even male priests look tacky in bad vestments.http://badvestments.blogspot.com/2011_0 ... chive.htmlhttp://badvestments.blogspot.com/2011_0 ... chive.htmlhttp://badvestments.blogspot.com/2011_0 ... chive.htmlhttp://badvestments.blogspot.com/2010/1 ... -dont.html
3. Then I came upon this and was dismayed.http://badvestments.blogspot.com/2011/1 ... f-but.html
That's the straight-arrow, sharp-shooting Bishop of Marquette, MI - the Most Rev. Alexander Sample. The blogger comments that the Bishop is holding his nice crosier correctly, that he's got his amice just so - but what's that on his chasuble - a hamburger?
I'll give you three guesses, but I think a monstrance or a chalice or even a stemmed ciborium would have been a better design.
