Cruci-fix Your Damn Cover

12/12/2008 6:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Catholics are raising holy hell over Playboy's decision to put a naked Virgin Mary on the cover of their Mexican edition.

The President of the Catholic League tells TMZ: "Playboy's juxtaposition of the sacred with the profane is a game that many have played, but to exploit Catholicism and insult Latinos in the same breath is novel. The December cover of its Mexican edition demonstrates once again that when it comes to good taste, Playboy remains quintessentially virginal."

We're told Playboy is getting flooded with calls from fathers, sons and holy ghosts.

Just because she's standing by a tinted window, doesn't mean it's churchy. I have a friggin tinted window in my house, and this place is as far as you can get from being a church. Get over it.

Insult Latino's? Maybe the Priest's will finally lay off the choir boy's. Some of the most beautiful women in the world are Latino. Good for you Playboy. And what the hell are these Catholics doing reading this "Good Book"? Get a life... If I remember correctly, Adam & Eve were nude 24/7.

I don't think there's anything wrong with this at all, actually. Just because she's standing by a stained glass window doesn't mean it has anything to do with church. It's just a picture people!

That has nothing to do the the Virgin Mary. Blasphemy is to be profane to God. Mary is not a God but the mother of one. This is a reenactment of a another artists conception of Mary. Now if the artists that this work is depicting were still alive and was mad at copying them, that might be a point of contention. This art using another piece of art that represents another artists idea of Mary. I cannot understand why this is so offensive. It is not Mary the mother of God. Just like Madonna is not a representation of The Madonna. This just a symbol of a symbol of Mary.

You people are too much. You know, one of the passages ripped from the Bible by the Catholic truth-squads indicated that Mary was a screamer who liked to be spanked. Hopefully she had a nice ass like this cover girl does.
