THEMES TO AVOID

A rosary as fashion statement.  Who are you, Madonna?

CAROLINA THREEFER

First, a little housecleaning. Things have been a bit on the hectic side around here lately. I'm still working on the field for the 2009-2010 Bad Vestments "Worst Vestment of the Year" voting and should have it up by this weekend.

On to new business. If you run a site like this, any story about the consecration of an Episcopal bishops is like Christmas. You don't know what's in the package but there's a pretty good chance that you're going to love it.

Of course you're going to get socks or a tie once in a while. Granted, I haven't seen many pictures of it but the recent consecration of Mary Glasspool, the Episcopal Church's second homosexual bishop, out in Los Angeles, has to be considered a major disappointment.

But the Diocese of Upper South Carolina just made up for it.  Um...Upper South Carolina, Gracie?  Yup.  For those who don't know, there are almost as many Episcopal dioceses as there are Episcopalians and, as Andy Warhol might have said, in the future, everyone will be an Episcopal bishop for 15 minutes.

Anyway, Upper SC just consecrated a new bishop.  That's him in the middle, the Rev. W. Andrew Waldo.  I'm not sure what's going on there.  I guess it's a variation of that flames theme.  Once again, it's kind of not a good idea if they look like they're coming from that direction.

The woman to Bishop Waldo's right is rocking a stole with the names of women from the Bible signifying, of course, that there were...women...in the...Bible.  I don't know about you but I didn't know that so I appreciate this woman communicating that fact.

I don't know what's happening on the stole on the woman to the Bishop's left.  God's in charge of the weather?  A tribute to the cold front?  Go Iowa State Cyclones?

TRUTH IN ADVERTISING

Sarah wasn't the only one who busted a gut, dude.  I think I might have broken a rib just now.

THE BV WORST VESTMENT NOMINATIONS

This site doesn't turn a year old for another couple of months and we're still a few days off from the consecration of Episcopal Bishop Suffragan Mary Glasspool out in Los Angeles, an event that has the potential to be a bad vestment gold mine so now's as good a time for this as any.

What is the worst Christian vestment you have ever seen?  Nominate it down in the comments.  There are two ways to nominate a vestment you've seen on this site.  Put in the URL of the post or just put the title of the post and the date so I can find it.

If you know of a vestment that I haven't gotten to yet but that you think deserves consideration, type in its URL.  I'll leave a link to this on the sidebar for a week, put together a field of ten or so(and the more votes a particular vestment receives, the more likely it is to make the cut) and then we'll vote for a week or so.
