Wearing a Surplice is Gay?

Wearing a Surplice is Gay? December 3, 2018

I almost have no words for this! Doug Wilson of Blog and Mablog is clearly saying right up front that ecumenical robes, worn in most religious traditions, are indications of sexuality! How twisted and fragile is your sense of your own masculinity that it can be threatened by a cloth robe? Doug thinks that wearing a surplice is gay.

What is a surplice?

Screencap from Google

There are even choirs that wear surplices. These are garments that are common in liturgical traditions throughout mainstream Christianity, not some rainbow flag announcing sexuality.

This is from Wilson’s ‘November Nonsense’ series where he worried about his sexuality copiously. Speculating over a child’s sexuality is reprehensible.

A child! A small child. He is judging the sexuality of a child who is not his, or related to him in any way. Very creepy.

He follows this with a pile of jokes, tasteless jokes about mainstream religion and what he considers deviant sexuality. So classy! So … revealing.

Then Doug goes on to bash Catholics and Episcopalians with relish before returning like a dog to it’s vomit to the theme of gay men wearing a surplice. Real men worship Jesus without frou-frou garments according to Doug.

This constant circling around to fear-mongering over gay men in most of Wilson’s posts are frightening. He thinks more about penis  than the guys down at the New York Jacks.
