Abomination of the Week or SQUAAAWK!

Questions this abomination raise:

Is it comparing the crucified Son of God to . . . a parrot? Or is the Holy Spirit a parrot in warm climes or in the turgid minds of libchurchers?

Does it go “Polly want a cracker!” during the distribution of the Blessed Sacrament?

Has there ever been a vestment that is so intentionally pointless and irreverent?

Should I laugh? Be angry? Both?

Yeah. I really loathe "fashion" vestments(if one could even call it that).

It makes me sick to my stomach to even think of a priest/bishop wearing one these ghastly creations!

Give me the old-traditional please!

You can tell ugly or bad art chasubles because they are made for celebrating in the "Bartender" position. I don't remember seeing any such chasubles designed for "facing the east".

This one is obviously mad to wear with "Poll Parrot" shoes - remember them? They were the main competitor to "Buster Brown" in the children's shoe world.
