This image hurts my eyes.
It was not exactly a favorite in Anglican Land either.
I have a question, but there's no real nice way of asking it, and that makes me feel bad because I really don't want to poke fun. Why does she (and other clergy) wear such vestments?
There seems to be a tendency in Western churches to simplify vestments, and that's fine (you don't have to raid all the brocade from Lalame LIKE SOME PEOPLE
), but it can still be done with good taste. Why does tackiness (or worse) seem so appealing? RC bishops do this sort of thing too, but it always seems to be a little worse on the Episcopalian side. RC's will also use nice vestments, or at least OK vestments, and I'm sure Episcopalians must have them too, but where are they? No offence, but I would've thought women clergy would have a better fashion sense.
