The other day I posted – HERE – about the truly weird vestments designed for the upcoming World Meeting of Families in Dublin.
At first, I objected to the impression given by the pastel colors chosen.
It seems to me that, in Ireland and in this time of renewed clerical crisis, this is NOT the best choice. In fact, it is completely tone deaf.
Or is it?
Then the comments started coming in about the symbols on the vestments. “Maybe, so, maybe not,” I thought.
But wait. There’s more.
I got an email from a reader who said that the swirly symbol is quite like the – blech blech blech – symbol used on the flag – even they have a flag – of the BDSM types (Bondage Discipline Sado-Masochism).
He said I would find the symbol at the wikipedia site for BDSM. DO NOT GO THERE. I found it. Blech. Here it is. In two forms.
I don’t even want to post their graphic file, so I will make a screen shot instead.
I had also posted about the Italian proverb that, “Il diavolo non può nascondere le corna… The Devil can’t hide his horns.”
In fact, the Devil doesn’t want to hide them.
The Devil always tells us what he is up to, if we are paying attention.
Start adding up all the things going on.
I have to ask…
WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?!?
