JUST SAYIN'

This had better be some secularist's idea of a stupid joke.  Or I'm going to have to shut this site down before I hurt somebody.

I'm guessing it's Fashion Week in Rome?

Now I remember. Reminds me of Fellini's Roma: http://youtu.be/CYzRL9YIswQ

It's Italian, Roman and cinimatic. So what were you expecting?

Our Presiding Bishop has never looked more striking.

Can't see BXVI in that. He's not tall enough to carry it off... Talking about bad vestments, did you see Fr Longenecker's post about the female Episcopalian minister who enters bodybuilding competitions. Now that REALLY conjours up images that don't deserve to be in anyone's head.

As was once said to (RC Cardinal) Fanny Spellman, "Honey, your purse is on fire!"

Steampunk vestments?

I'd say its the new bishop of Washington, however that outfit is in a correct liturgical color,so that lets her out. Plus I don't think she'd be caught dead doing something like swinging a thurible, Thats just too christian and traditional and might be seem off putting to the "unchurched".

I love "UnChristian Dior"! ha ha

It looks like Orlando Bloom. Someone tell me that is not Orlando Bloom!

It's "Hell Night" at the initiation ceremony at the convent for the Sisters of Perpetual Novelty.

Too late. My eyes.

What is the source on this? It looks like a stage or fashion runway rather than a church. So it could be a seculartist's idea of a joke highlightening the excessive feminizing of the priesthood (which I am not inclined to argue with), and possibly a nod to the widespread secular belief that all priests are secretly homosexual (unitll there is child molestation, which case secularists fall over themselves trying to make homosexuals disappear from the equation entirely).

"highlightening"? Sorry about that. I'm not really smoking a bong at my keyboard. :)

This is the stuff of nightmares! Please, God, don't let this be real!

This is the creepiest thing a friend of mine has seen since the Neptunians in Planet Patrol.

The COST of the vestments can be as offensive and obscene as the aesthetics:

The Pope wears Prada?

I know Bishops wear a lot of doo-dads and froo-froo, but I didn't know a corset was part of the ensemble.
