Much of a flurry over the cassock-alb. Somebody doesn't like them. Thinks they're too quick and easy. For those not into the more Liberal side of Anglo Catholic things, this is a thing ministers wear. It's white. It's a bit like one of those winter coats we used to have in the early 80s, which buttoned at the shoulder. And it's quicker to get on and off than the alternatives. Which, in some situations, can be an advantage.
In fact, only if you're keen on "fumbling with amice strings" could this be a problem. I don't know what an amice is, or why it has strings. But if that's what you like doing, then I suppose in the privacy of your own vestry, you can fumble with your amice strings to your heart's delight.
As ever, I ask myself in these circumstances, how could the correct use of the clothing of the Roman oppressors of God's holy people - for that is what albs, cassocks and stoles and the like are - be mapped onto the way the early Church lived?
Did St Paul have to arrive at gigs early because he had to struggle with alb, cassock and maniple? If he did there's no mention of it in Acts. Did Peter open the Council of Jerusalem with amice aforethought? Nope. Going further back - did David dance with all his might in a fiddle back chasuble? No.
Did the disciples, on the day of Pentecost, ask the Spirit to give them five minutes as their tippets weren't straight? Not in the best manuscripts, no.
No, I've checked. The sheep aren't separated from the goats on the basis of how complicated their clothing is. The Prodigal Son's depravation - even in his brother's imagination - didn't include wearing a onesie. The Sermon on the Mount doesn't include an injunction that the biretta-wearers will inherit the earth. Dives didn't wear a Spandex jumpsuit, and Lazarus wasn't in his best Gaudete Sunday rose outfit.
In short, I don't think God cares what you wear.
Apart from Lycra cycling shorts on middle aged men. MAMILs make the baby Jesus cry.
