He should not have looked like a Crusader today.

1. He should have been in green for ordinary time.
:shrug:

White is reserved for special feasts, red for the Holy spirit and/or martyrs.

Here's a run down from a traditional site:

Red cross on white doesn't compute at all!

2. He sad the bishop authorized white for 9/11.
I don't know where the red cross came from.

3. Yeah - I could maybe see using the white, but the red cross on
the white sounds more like something our Episcopalian brethren might have.

4. I'm trying to think of which is worse - wearing it knowing the
connotations or wearing it not knowing?

I wonder if his ears were burning during the readings.

We had a priest who commemorated the event by permanently installing the US flag and papal flag at three entrances!
