This action by Adam Lambert makes me wonder if it is not a political statement. I found a video on youtube of him singing Madonna's Ray of Light. He wore this "mockery" outfit during this concert, or at least while singing this song at the concert. The script on the outfit appears to have some Slavonic on it. The symbols seems to be a mis-mash of various things. Whoever designed it had some knowledge of the monastic schema.
Could it be a statement against the Church of Russia, or Russia? It has been said here that Adam Lambert is homosexual. Perhaps this is a kind of protest (like Madonna speaking out) against the recent laws in Russia concerning homosexuality?
For me, the Monastic schema has an other-wordliness. Its is quite visually striking. Personally, it is strange to see such a thing that Adam Lambert is wearing. It does seem a "mockery". Truly, it is, I believe though, just an act of ignorance, no matter the reason he wore it or the reason the designer designed it. I pray for those who are involved in its existence. I'm not personally outraged though. If Adam Lambert and the designer had ever spent time with a Holy elder or Holy Eldress of the Greatschema, I doubt that such a thing would have been designed by the designer or worn by Adam Lambert.
The hoodies and shirts designed by Death to the World, I think they have their place. I'm not going to beat down on them. They aren't for everyone, but for some, I think they can be a step, even though very small.
