My correspondent informs me that this stole was a gift which, I guess, makes it the liturgical equivalent of those SpongeBob SquarePants or My Little Pony neckties your kids get you for your birthday or Christmas. No matter how embarrassed you might feel, you've got to wear them and you've got to wear them more than once.

I'm not really sure what's going on here yet. I guess that thing at the top is the sun although don't hold me to that. As for the rest of it, I'm stumped.

As he regularly likes to remind people, Episcopal Bishop Steven Charleston is a Choctaw Indian but I don't think that's why he's rocking this stole. Says here that he recently held the position of "multicultural minister" for the Diocese of California so I think that's what's going on here.

Some fast-food chains are apparently hiring chaplains.

UPDATE: Bad Vestments New England bureau chief Janjan alerts me to these pictures of something called the Dorchester Gas Tank. I got nuthin'.
