From Dutch NOS TV today about this picture:
‘Too sexy’ painting of apostle removed from Spanish church
A painting of the apostle Saint James (Santiago) was removed from a church in the Spanish town Membrilla because it was supposedly be too ‘sexy’. In the painting, the apostle wears a tunic and a bare thigh and two bare knees can be seen.
The 87-year-old artist made the painting years ago, commissioned by the previous parish priest, a friend, and donated it to his birthplace. He now lives in Miami.
Does this priest know that in most crucifixes in Roman Catholic churches, Jesus Christ wears only a loincloth?
Many pictures intended for churches, by Hieronymus Bosch and other ancient painters, show completely naked people. Does this priest know?
Where was this priest when a right-wing Spanish politician condoned rape?
Where was this priest when a right-wing Spanish archbishop condoned rape?
Especially for that priest-censor, this music video.
The video is called Right Said Fred – I’m Too Sexy (Original Mix – 2006 Version).
