Reminds me I have to carry a camera around with me to take pictures of the "multi-cultural sock puppets" and "dog riding in a car with the top down" signs for a church near where my wife works. I believe the colorful sock puppets are to advertise their commitment to diversity and the dog one is to advertise their open air services in the summer.
So, at that church, do they all go "down to the river" then all take off their clothes to dry during the rest of the service?
Whatever, that is how most people dress at the (Catholic) church I go to. Its annoying. This is the bubble I imagine over their heads, "Woo hoo, let's go have some picnic Christ!"
Sadly, the dress code's about the same at my Catholic parish, too. It's pretty much the universal "going on errands" wear. Of course, if someone really important was going to be present -- like, say, Bono -- I'm sure they'd dress up.
Sadly the dress code in pretty much every church and pretty much everywhere has gone way down. Remember how classy everyone, including the poor people dressed in the fifties? (Ok, some of us may not remember, but we have all seen pics of the era.) That got lost with the hippy era and people haven't got it back.
