Because Christian worship is not supposed to be about you.
With pockets for a little spare incense? The radio mike? A cough drop or two? At the very least, to collect lint to match what's in the wearer's head?Ye gods.
A brilliant blog!

Does this stole come in a set with the Blue Jeans Bible?- Elle
Pray tell, for what season or festival does one wear the blue jean stole?
It may be custom-designed for the emerging Cowboy Churches....
In Lutheran usage, blue is the preferred color for Advent. In ELCA usage, too.Apropos of which, the premise of this blog is questioned at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t9dvVp0Nxjo
Do denim right: It needs a chi-rho in orange double-stitching and copper grommits.
WHO MAKES THIS CRAP?!?!?!?!?!
How very judgemental of all of you! You should be ashamed. It is not "bad vestments" that keep people from church, it's overly-judgemental, so-called Christians like yourselves. Who are you to judge what God finds pleasing or not? Did He not give the person who created this the skills to do so? Are you therefore MOCKING and QUESTIONING God Almighty's decision? You should all drop to your knees and beg forgiveness.
The links says: "Care instructions: This stole may be washed in warm water on the gentle cycle and machine dried low, or dry cleaned."And it you are hanging out clothes on the washing line, the stole comes with handy pockets to store your pegs.
