Why does the Pope wear such funny clothing?

Why does the Pope wear such funny clothing?
I have always wondered this. What difference does it make if he is wearing a dress and a funny hat??

Nothing more than ritual. I believe those things detract from worship.

God loves those who believe and those who do not and the same goes for me, you have no choice in this matter. That puts the matter of total free will to rest.

RE: Why does the Pope wear such funny clothing?
Current Papal regalia is largely a holdover from the time when the pontiff was -  in a very real sense - a king, on a par with secular monarchs.  Technically, the pope is still a sovereign, which is why he dresses the way he does.  His attire is really no sillier than that of many medieval/Renaissance heads of state (take a look at paintings of Henry VIII or the Borgia boys).

But I agree that it makes him look like a poor grade of drag queen.

Maybe god's eyesight is going and he needs to be able to pick him out.

Or maybe camouflage.   Let's say the Pope does something that gets him in dutch with God - you know, something REALLY anathema to the Church, like actually punishing child molester priests or officiating at a same sex wedding.  When God In His Wrath comes looking for Francis, he could simply mingle with a room full of drag queens and God wouldn't be able to spot him.

Mojo. And he looks FABULOUS as well.

Too bad they can't thinking of a better way to spend that money.

Says the guy steeped in ritual.

I'm sure that there is something in Scripture authorizing the fancy dress. Hard to imagine a self described Bible/Christian faith running off the rails on something like that.
 The granting of a pardon is an imputation of guilt, and the acceptance a confession of it.

The John the Baptist look is so disgusting.

Matthew 3:4 (KJV) = "And the same John had his raiment of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey."
