I know that I am going to get all sorts of ugly comments from this. I don't care! If you've got the stones to say something to me, I will read it. I might delete it right away, but I will read it.The Pope is not this old man sitting on a throne dispensing justice. As far as vestments are concerned, all of the clergy of Orthodox and Catholic Churches wear proper vestments, as they are representing Christ Jesus at the altar.
