From Ecclesia Anglicana
Jeremy Taylor on the Blessed Sacrament

The Chianti cassock and mozetta?
'Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!' ('Not the comfy chair!') I love it! Seems to be part of the recent phenom, though, of black American ministers of unliturgical Protestant churches adopting Catholic tat without Catholic beliefs or more important practices. Once read of some getting episcopal consecration from vagantes so they can claim apostolic succession, but along with all this there seems to be a real high-church movement that ends up looking a lot like Anglicanism.

One can make an argument that the kente cloth is a legitimate development/adaptation. Complaints - not enough buttons (looks like an altar-boy cassock) and the zipper is déclassé.
