"I went to a Latin Mass yesterday for an hour and a half, and after it was over, the deacon had me up against the wall and said, 'You're not for raising that debt ceiling are you, Mr Buchanan?' Listen, friends ..."
I am occasionally reminded by the "powers that be" that an adult male in clerical dress, even under proper circumstances, can be a source of confusion amidst the pews. I have respectfully shared with them, of how I can be at a cocktail party talking about the Catholic faith, and people ask me if I'm a deacon, or even a priest.
Hey, people, maybe I just look good in black. Does anyone ever think about that?
