WE BRING GOOD THINGS TO CHURCH

It's a good idea to be careful in one's vestment selection.  Do you know the first thing I thought when I saw this?  Why does Archbishop Duncan have the GE logo on his miter?

Bishop of the disaffected microwave owner. He brings good things to light.

Gee, I thought of the Japanese flag pre-WWII! Is the Empire of the Rising Sun staging a comeback?

At least it's a cross. That ++Duncan is wearing it doesn't surprise me. If +Schori were wearing it, I'd faint.

I'm confused - why does Bob get ++ ? Is it like a double D mansierre?

Because he's the Archbishop of ACNA? If I'm wrong, my apologies. Why not +Schori? Because she's not an Archbishop. And not a primate (in my eyes) either. She's just the Presiding Bishop. Just like Griz was. But at least Duncan is wearing a cross - which is more important that all the above.

Ah...titles..meaningless titles and power plays for all. Bobby was angling for that archbishop title for years. Never mistake his "conservatism" for integrity. Katharine had her political posse out to ensure her election. Grizzy began the entire primate entitlement. What's more important than any of this is that the church was never the hierarchy. So opinions about Katharine or whether Bobby wears a cross (or a double D mansierre or gets his eyebrows permed) is irrelevant. Let's stick to the topic - making fun of hideous vestments and the clueless clowns who wear 'em.

It is so amusing, really. Most of these bishops simply don't look well wearing a mitre.

Reminds me of what Sydney Smith said about two centuries ago. "Miters are best seen on signet rings, stationery, and carriage doors---but not on men's heads."

What are bishops trying to prove---that they're 'pointy-head intellectuals'?

We're sure this is not from the Land of the Rising Sun?
