Church of England bans mankinis in the pulpit

It would certainly be a revelation – but not of the kind to be found in the Bible.

The Church of England is considering changing ecclesiastical law specifically to make it illegal for clergy to appearing at the altar dressed in overly revealing clothing.

While the prospect of vicars in lacy underwear or bishops in mankinis might seem outlandish – at least in most congregations – it is an apparent peril which has so vexed Church officials that they are planning to amend canon law to prevent it – just in case.
