The April issue of “Loaded”, a men's magazine based out of the United Kingdom, is featuring a spread with the well-endowed glamour model Lucy Pinder scantily clad in Papal attire. “For God’s Sake” and “Come All Ye Faithful” (the F has devil horns in the title) are the headlines for the spoof on the retirement of Pope Benedict XVI, depicting Pinder wearing barely-there garments, a large cross necklace and the Pope’s red sash.
Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League lashed out against the racy photos of the Papal clad Pinder to TMZ.
Lucy Pinder shouldn't have any problem turning men's heads, so it is all the more gratuitous to see her wearing a priest's stole, stitched with crosses, nicely covering her plus-sized chest.
If Lucy has any guts, perhaps next time she'll carefully drape herself in some Islamic garb during Ramadan. And then run for the hills.
Lucy Pinder shot back, defending her racy photos telling TMZ the shoot was “meant to be very fun and tongue-in-cheek”, with an added commentary from the writer of the piece advising Catholics to chill.
However, Donohue is correct: if racy photos depicting a sexy model scantily dressed as a leader of one of the other top two religions of the world had surfaced, people would be up in arms. This resignation of the Pope and the election of a new Successor to Saint Peter are extremely relevant, holy and imperative to the Catholic Church and its followers, warranting a touch more respect to those who honor its tenets.
