As far as Christian worship is concerned, I lean more to the anti-vestment side of things.  Nevertheless, I have to admire the fact that you can purchase a liturgical vestment for just about any situation a Christian minister might encounter.  When you want to emphasize a Biblical theme.  When you're celebrating a particular feast day.  When the roof leaks.

This picture comes from something called the Young Feminist Network, part of the Women's Ordination Conference, a group dedicated to advancing the cause of women's ordination in the Roman Catholic Church.

I have no interest in debating the theological merits of that topic and I'd appreciate it if none of you did either.  I'd just like to know something.

What is up with leftists and giant papier-mâché puppets of doom?

You see them all the time in secular leftist demonstrations and I sort of understand using them there.  Well, no, actually, I don't.  If you want to convince me to back your cause, looking as stupid as you possibly can is no way to go about it.

But I really don't understand using them in church.  Do these people seriously believe that people like me are going to take one look at ridiculous displays like this and think, "Jeepers, are these people spiritual!!  Maybe they're right and I'm wrong."

Because that's not the message I'm picking up, yo.

Give it up for a giant papier-mâché Roman Catholic puppet of doom.
