I named my Mass Effect female Shepard after her (Zooey Shepard).

When officiating, vestments.

Some Protestant ministers where academic dress.

Hey I got baptized in one of those miniature inflatable pools that kids play in in backyards! But of course a river or lake isn't exactly a good option for baptism in Minnesota in February. I know during the summer some churches here do baptisms in Lake Harriett.
Why don't you purify yourself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka?

Well, since I reject the idea of ordained clergy but rather prefer that preaching be done by volunteer, lay members of the congregation I can say that it doesn't matter to me what they wear.

However, I would like if my preachers wore suits and other business attire as it is just what I am used to.

Some form of vestments, definitely. They don't have to be fancy, even use a simple black Geneva gown if you want. But preachers in suit and tie (or worse, T-shirts) just look dumb.

But the weird new-age feminist hippie vestments beloved of some can be extraordinarily ugly and distracting, I must say.

Ideally, there would be no clergy, but options 1 and 2 are absurdly archaic for everybody.

No they don't. Ties only look good if one wears them "ironically". My supervisor at work often wears a tie along with ripped jeans and with a hoodie over it.

Speaking of which one of the pastors at my church did wear a tie when he was preaching one week, but of course it was to be "ironic". The next time he preached he was actually wearing a hoodie.

The thing about suits is that they automatically make a man look suspicious and insincere. Salesmen, lawyers, politicians. Not exactly good company.

Hence why clergy should wear them. Religion is supposed to be or at least evoke the transhistorical.

Heh. It's funny. I've read your posts on politics and religion and even though I disagree with you, I don't get mad. But now you have a different fashion opinion and I'm pissed. Funny that.
