BBC reports that a youth group at a church in Nuremburg has produced a calendar in which students recreated scenes from the Bible, well, au natural.
One girl, who posed as the prostitute Rahab, explained, "We wanted to represent the Bible in a different way and to interest young people."
I guess that is what happens when reading the Bible becomes a virtue onto itself, and not a means unto our Final End. As if knowing there is some prostitute name Rahab, and sinning, is somehow salvific?
Said stellar pastor Bernd Grasser, "It's just wonderful when teenagers commit themselves with their hair and their skin to the bible."
Dirty. Old. Man.
"Anyway, it doesn't say anywhere in the Bible that you are forbidden to show yourself nude."
No... but I did read something about committing adultery with the eye, and tearing out eyes that cause you to sin. Pornagraphy and Christianity are polar opposites. Why is that surprising? They are the two opposite interpretations of "This is my body, given up for you."
Perhaps most offensive, it was photographed in their gothic church building.
They take our churches, and this is how they use them?
