This sure isn’t accentuating the positive – over at Real Clear Religion, Nicholas G. Hahn III gives 20 examples of “The Ugliest Vestments Ever Worn.”
I count 1 Baptist in the lot, 1 Lutheran, 2 nondenominational (both Joel Osteen), 5 Roman Catholic, and 11 Episcopal/Anglican. Three of the latter are all from Katharine Jefferts Schori.
Get this: of the 5 Catholic examples, one of them is Alexander Sample! And two are Benedict XVI. Don’t blame them – I suspect it is their handlers in both cases.
What do you think of these examples, and by what criteria do you… oh never mind, you don’t need any help from me to issue your opinions. Have at it.
