A vicar who believes socks are an "instrument of Satan" has been turned away from a bar for wearing sandals.
The Reverend Andrew Dotchin was told he could not go into The Wine Bar in Tacket Street, Ipswich, by a doorman due to health and safety fears.
The vicar of Whitton said he was "gutted" as "dog collars and sandals" are what vicars wear.

Y'know I could have gotten on quite well without seeing that parson's feet. o.O

LOL, health and safety fears. They'll say anything. The default one is the blame the insurer. As much as I hate poncy bars with pretentious dress codes, at least they're consistent in enforcing it.

Is this a joke? Socks are instruments of Satan? Ah, maybe the vicar has a sense of humour. So hard to tell with some of these people.
