Let the Laughing Begin

When are we going to start laughing at grown men whose work clothes are dresses, but they despise cross dressers and homosexuals?

And to top it off these old, typically white, men wear funny hats.

How can we not laugh at these presumptions?

To dress as others did hundreds of years ago; who else does that? Tradition prescribes that blacksmiths wear leather aprons, but there are pragmatic reasons for doing so. Baseball players wear funny uniforms, but again there are pragmatic reasons for it (plus they are in the entertainment business.)

Does clerical garb allow prelates to better run away from ravening gangs of atheists? I think not, in fact it may inhibit such behavior. Does clerical garb contain Kevlar to stop shots fired by separatists, or Islamists, etc.? No, no evidence of that.

Maybe the church likes cross dressers and recruits them through these outfits?

Is great puzzlement. Bring on the laughter.

Note The laughter recommended is mocking laughter. The religious claim they have too much dignity to be mocked. Now, that’s a laugh.

    • But they are still on record hating homosexuals. It is either self-loathing or a protective mechanism, but it is what it is. :o)

    • They seem to prefer colors only royalty could afford (Royal purple, for example) and are signally their political power by wearing it. But they also have established rituals in dressing up, as if the process were sacred. Attendants have to learn how to properly clean and prepare the garments, and also to fold (or not) and store them, and how to present them to their “divine.” The more effort involved in serving someone, the more special that someone is, no? Rock stars insisting hat one color of M&Ms have to be removed before they are served. (As if they couldn’t pick them out themselves.)
