Pomp and circus

Having spent the weekend in Narnia, I went with my mother to mass in Joliet. The bishop for the Joliet diocese said a special mass at 2pm for the Right to Life group, and don't even get me started on those whack jobs! They say no to sex, birth control, and abortion. They won't even explain sex when they preach abstinence, if they bother to teach the kids about that. Just say no, how is that workin for ya?? I say you have to pick your poison...but I digress.

Back to the circus. The bishop was escorted by at least a dozen other priests and by the Knights of Columbus in full regalia. I am talking tux, cape, sword and weird hat with feathers. The priests were in their usual colorful cloaks and the bishop was sporting one of those cone shaped hats.

The entire time, all I could think was, "What in the hell is it with men in silly costumes and funny hats?" REALLY?? My mother is going to Rome to meet the pope. I told her to look for the dude with the biggest hat.

Sounds like Mardi Gras at the gay bar.
