The Winner of the Nasty Chasuble Contest!
Fireside Chat with the Rector ^ | 12/27/2004 | Vicar

Posted on 12/28/2004 9:09:56 AM PST by sionnsar

Yes, folks, the time has come to announce a winner! At the eleventh hour, Father M. (he wishes to remain somewhat anonymous) from Folkestone on the Kentish coast sent us photos of this absolutely nasty chasuble. It was apparently procured in the United States, as it sports some symbols of the American church, but that is just NOT an excuse for its nastiness!

Father M. will be recieving a signed original "Father Jolly" print, and will have a candle lit for him in the Chapel of St. Knorr of the West Saxons. I wish to thank everyone who contributed photos, and in the next few days I will be running each of the entries which took first, second and third-place honors, as well as the honourable mention.

Thank you again to Father M. for his hard work and dedication to unearthing true nastiness in the Church! Keep it up! And please notify us when you will be able to post photos from the chasuble-burning that you are scheduling for next week!


TOPICS: Mainline Protestant
KEYWORDS: chasuble; nasty; ugly
[LOL! You'll have to click through to see it, but this is one nasty chasuble!! First-place honors? Should be first-place horrors.--sionnsar]

I think even God Himself might consider that to be at least tacky.

Re: "It was apparently procured in the United States, as it sports some symbols of the American church, but that is just NOT an excuse for its nastiness!"

This vestment alone has set back Anglo-American relations 150 years. It is a wonder English people even speak to us.

LOL. I think we'll be all right if there are no protests over here at its burning.

Maybe the revisionist can work the burning into their new Druid Rite? Hopefully they will not consider that sacrilegious and insist on the burning of a Traditional vestment while wearing that ugly thing. Or is all this moot clothing in general being optional?

Somehow that hideous thing deserves something more than just an ordinary burning.

Maybe a liquid oxygen immolation? Less likely to leave disgusting residue.

. . . . that IS just about the ugliest thing I've ever seen. It's uglier than ANY felt banner that ever made an appearance at our church. Attributing it to fourth graders is an insult to their intelligence and artistic skills. . . .

Update from the same source:

Anyhow...the twelve days have grown stranger by the moment. As soon as I announced the winner of the "Nasty Chasuble Contest," my telephone began ringing off the hook, and a man arrived from town with a telegram. I fear that I have alienated a certain vestment-monger in Leicester, and I also have half of the Mother's Union from St. Dymphna's, Horsham after me for insinuating that their entry was not even good enough to publish! What a day!

It's Japanese actually, but iinteresting.

The original owner of the blog (The Rector) abandoned it a couple of years or so back. Somebody else took it over pretending to be The Rector (and failing) and then did something Swedish/Norwegian/Viking (I don't recall clearly) and it sat that way for a long time.

A pity really, because Fireside Chat was a real hoot. I frequently checked in to follow the saga. I'm just glad I was able to rescue the chasuble photos as well as the Fr. Jolly comics.
