This Particular Barbie Can't Swim The Tiber
Why can't she just stick to making little girls feel bad about themselves for no reason whatsoever?

Helmet tip to Father Gonzales.

Here's some of the article from ReligionNews.com; Barbie gets ordained, and has the smells-and-bells wardrobe to match

(RNS) With her careers as veterinarian, astronaut and U.S. president behind her, Barbie has at last found her true calling: as a second-career Episcopal priest.

The 11.5-inch-tall fictional graduate of Church Divinity School of the Pacific in Berkeley, Calif., has donned a cassock and surplice and is rector at St. Barbara’s-by-the-Sea in (where else?) Malibu, Calif.

She arrived at the church fully accessorized, as is Barbie’s custom. Her impeccably tailored ecclesiastical vestments include various colored chasubles (the sleeveless vestments worn at Mass) for every liturgical season, black clergy shirt with white collar, neat skirt and heels, a laptop with prepared sermon and a miniature, genuine Bible.

Apparently a devotee of the “smells and bells” of High Church tradition, the Rev. Barbie even has a tiny thurible, a metal vessel used for sending clouds of incense wafting toward heaven.
Poor Barbie. I think David Bowie said it best. Ch-ch-ch-changes...

Let us pray that the Episcopalian priestess Barbie helps drive even more conservative members of Henry VIII's church back to Rome.

I agree, Episcopalian priestess Barbie must be very high church if she is wearing a black (gasp) vestment! How retrograde of her. She should know that the first few letters of funeral are F-U-N and the priest(ess) needs to dress the part in vibrant colors to cheer everyone up!

Pretty appropriate that she's pictured wearing black, the color of funerals and mourning.
