Pinup Bible Calendar Revisited

[My first and perennially popular post on this "religion" story was on 12/6/05. I've googled without success now to see if the project was repeated in 2007 or will be for 2008.]

This story says, "Blog Me." But where do we order it?

BBC NEWS Asia-Pacific Youths reveal racy Bible calendar: The creators said they wanted to appeal to a younger generation
A German Protestant youth group has put together a 2006 calendar illustrated with erotic scenes from the Bible.

The 12 re-enacted passages feature a bare-breasted Delilah cutting Samson's hair and a nude Eve offering an apple.

The Nuremberg-based group said they wanted to represent the Bible in a way that would entice young people.

Nuremberg pastor Bernd Grasser said: 'It's just wonderful when teenagers commit themselves with their hair and their skin to the bible.'

'There's a whole range of biblical scriptures simply bursting with eroticism,' said Stefan Wiest, 32, who took the racy photographs.

Anne Rohmer, 21, wearing garters and stockings, posed on a doorstep as the prostitute Rahab.

'We wanted to represent the Bible in a different way and to interest young people,' she told news agency Reuters.

'Anyway, it doesn't say anywhere in the Bible that you are forbidden to show yourself nude.'

Apparently Ann didn't think about deducing from the Genesis story about how God wasn't satisfied with the aprons that Adam and Eve put on.

Thanks for including the lovely picture of the mostly naked lady on your page. It reminds me of some words you recently wrote: "mind-piety. Striving for any pure thoughts."
