My eyes! These bishops need to become acquainted with the works of Mies van der Rohe. You know, "less is more" &c...

If you squint, he looks like a Dalmatian wearing a nice big red Christmas bow.

It's the vestment for all seasons. Unclear of the liturgical color for a day of national thanksgiving? Never fear, this vestment is here!

Coming soon to an altar near you, matching paraments.

I second EC, only I was going to say a dalmation on a fire truck.

It looks exactly like the Christmas tree skirts I saw at Marshalls today.

And what about those wretched dried blue flowers on (?) the altar? with the blue-green full frontal. I'd rather he just use a cassock and surplice and an altar fit for Good Friday. Good heavens!

The same might be said of theology, especially for the Episcopal Church.
