"To me, the bikini merely reveals the beauty of God’s creation…"

Friend Michael sends along this story about a priest being asked by his bishop to step down from his position as a judge at the Miss Universe pageant. What I’m wondering is how he got on the panel in the first place.

Gotta love the reasoning given here: “This competition represents a view of humans that is not in accordance with the Church’s,” said Arne Groeningsaeter, head of the Oslo diocese council, a state body that hires priests.

“The Church should preach that we are all equal and this competition’s view of woman is particularly disturbing.”

I can work with the “view of woman” thing, but “the Church should preach that we are all equal”? Gotcha. The next papal election will be conducted by drawing names from a hat. You know, because all the Cardinals are equal.

Speak Your Mind
