Catholic priests don’t wear suits to Mass. So why so many tuxedos at the Met Gala?

@catherineaddington the wires are crossing!

Hah, thanks y’all! I wrote up my tweetstorm for America Magazine today:

This is a culture that buries bones in its altars, builds chapels out of skulls and carries the broken yet whole body of Christ through the streets. When Sarah Jessica Parker walked out on that carpet with a seeming reliquary on her head, only to reveal a smiling nativity scene within it, bloodless and plasticine, the game was up.

Catholicism is already weird. It is the United States that is so incredibly boring.
