    Yes, I'm a 10th generation North American. My ancestor was one of the first acadians before the British stole their land and country away from them. For a while my family picked cotton with slaves in Georgia but eventually made it back to the Miquelon Islands. The Acadians that stayed down south took an 'x' to the end of their name - these are the Cajuns. Those who settled in Quebec added an 'lt' to their names.

    Somehow this image does not fit Joel Olsteen. He reminds me more of a poster boy on a fashion magazine. :lol:

    I sent an e-mail to the head of the college of cardinals this morning regarding the various vestment possibilities being suggested in this thread (along with the photos). After extensive dialogue, he agreed, albeit reluctantly, to pass it on to Pope Benedict XVI. When asked what Benedict's response was to viewing the pictures, particularly Joshua's hyper-masculinized Joel Osteen with the big sword, the head of the college of cardinals forwarded to me the following. Judge for yourself. BTW, if you hear news of the pope having a stroke today, you know why. It was either the Joel Osteen gladiator or the 90 yr old lady housedress fabric, I'm sure.

    Oh, the Pope said something about a wild boar being loose in the Lord's vineyard, whatever that means.

    Cut it out Dennis. The Pope is MY friend. Joe and I came up with this whole idea. He was over the other night and he was playing the piano and I was strumming my guitar and we were singing "Leaning On the Everlasting Arms" (the harmony was awesome), and I got the idea, "We need vestments like your posse wears.

    I picked out the suit with the Tulip on top and he ran giggling down the hall and came back dressed in black drinking a Franzi. We couldn't stop laughing (I'm sure it was the beer). Anyway, I beat him in a game of Jenga and then he had to go back to the 'Vaticombs' as he calls it when he's drinking.

    Dude, I saw that guy at the Italian Village restaurant just last weekend! He was waiting tables. Is Joe possibly moonlighting for mad money?

    Bob that was very edifying. I keep coming back to it.

    It's just so great to see evangelicals and catholics playing Jenga together.

    Could you ask him about the candles? They could sit in that bowl inside the tulip. I'd really like that. It would be like an illustration in a book I had when I was a little girl (I had a sort of troubled literary childhood).

    Bob, in the OP, it looks like you're wearing earrings. Are those the pearl drop model or just generic dangly ones?

    Vestments R US - Because we don't want to draw attention to the man!

    Advertiser's Description: "These discrete vestments will make your parishioners as well as those outside the church squirm under your authority.

    Not only does our vestments just scream authority, they are practical as well. For instance, we have affixed a large cup on the top of the head for use in administering the communion wine. The only way your parishioners shall partake of the wine is if they abase themselves low enough at your feet so that you have to bow to see them, thus spilling a little wine (make sure they have their cups ready and properly placed before abasing themselves before you!).

    For a limited time only, we are slashing the price on this fine vestment by 20%. Now you can own one for only $8000.00. At that price, shouldn't you get two so you have one for a rainy day?

    Customers who purchaed this product also purchased:
    Umbrella Vestment Replacement - Replaces communion cup in vestment with an umbrella attachment.
    Communion Wafer Replacement Kit - Replaces the metal circles with communion wafers. With this addition, communion is as easy as 1-2-3!"

    After looking at the outlandish suggestions by some of you, I began to wonder how certain Reformed luminaries would look in more "conventional" garb. Here is my suggestion. After all, he already knows Latin and uses it constantly, is comfortable traveling in Europe, and is known for speaking ex cathedra.

    BTW - it was very late when I found the R.C. pic and honestly did not notice that it had a crucifix rather than a cross in it. When Josh drew it to my attention, I was crimson with embarrassment. My bad. Thanks for vigilant moderators.
