What the hell #23

Praise be you are naked

I like art and I like to rip on organized religion from time to time, but this one leaves me at the crossroads. On one hand I want to praise the art, the other hand I scoff at it. On one hand I want to start going to church in Germany, the other hand I’m laughing at the pastor’s comments.

What am I talking about? A teen youth group in Germany is putting a 2006 calender with staged photos of erotic moments in the Bible; including nude scenes. Right…you think I make this crap up don’t you? Nope. Check it out at Reuters.

My favorite part of the article?

Bernd Grasser, pastor of the church in Nuremberg where the calendar is being sold, was enthusiastic about the project which is explained online at http://www.bibelkalender.de.
‘It’s just wonderful when teenagers commit themselves with their hair and their skin to the bible,’ he said.

So the pastor is excited that teenagers a taking their clothes off? Wow, that’s what I call old news…maybe we need to redefine the phrase “commit to the Bible”, because I am pretty sure church service attendance would go way up -or way down.
