C of E. No more funny hats?

Postby Abdul Alhazred » Sun Jul 09, 2017 2:38 pm

Church of England could ditch mitres over claims 'they look silly'
The Telegraph (UK)

Image

A senior Church of England figure is calling for bishops to ditch their mitres because they symbolise a "culture of deference".

Revd Ian Paul, a member of the Archbishops' Council, said the traditional hats were part of a "world of the past" and meant the bishops appeared elevated above the rest of the church.

"The mitre has become a sign that 'this person is a bishop'. It's not a very good one because it looks daft and it doesn't signify anything in the Church of England.

"It makes them distant and it makes them look silly," he told the Telegraph, adding that the hats were "Roman Catholicism by the back door".

...


Suggestion for new up to date uniform with a super cool hat so bishops can be down with the kiddies:

Well at least I know what those hats are called now.

They are kind of silly looking I suppose.

I believe the pope has also changed his style compared to how popes used to dress, hasn't he? He'll wear a skullcap but it's kind of rare to see him wearing a mitre these days, isn't it? Much less a papal tiara:

Regarding the new pope: lots of people say that he seems more humble than previous popes in part because he eschews the ostentatious bling of earlier popes.

This reminds me of a line from the movie War Machine. And I'm paraphrasing here but it was something like: "He was humble. But humble in the sort of way that conveyed that his humility made him better than you."

In reality, there is, perhaps, no one of our natural passions so hard to subdue as pride. Disguise it, struggle with it, beat it down, stifle it, mortify it as much as one pleases, it is still alive, and will every now and then peep out and show itself; you will see it, perhaps, often in this history; for, even if I could conceive that I had compleatly overcome it, I should probably be proud of my humility.

Pride is a funny thing, isn't it? One of the seven deadly sins (is that a Christian thing or do people all over the world think that pride is sinful?)

Too much pride is bad, but imagine as a thought experiment a world where nobody has any pride. What would that look like? Nobody would mow their lawn, right? No fashion. Everyone would probably wear like plain overalls or something like that. Could Beethoven and Mozart have written all that great music without a little bit of pride? I wonder what that world would be like.

Who needs pride if you have plenty of money? (And don't anyone give me a bunch of shit because you've confused pride and self respect either....)
