No Necessary Standards

I believe there should be no necessary and required attire for clergy. This is not to deny that there are conventional standards for such, and that many people may be offended on the occasions when those conventions are violated. My focus here is upon the idea of necessary standards. Throughout the world, there are many of what are called nudist communities or naturist communities. These people just find it liberating to dispense with clothing altogether. In a naturist community, people live their lives in the nude. This is speculation on my part, but I cannot see why such a community couldn’t also include ordinary religious services. And I assume that whatever minister, priest or cleric conducted such a service would do so in the nude. And if I am right about that, it would certainly establish that there is no necessary attire requirement for functioning as a religious leader!
