UK Glamour Model

Catholic Org. PISSED

Over Topless Papal Photos

3/8/2013 4:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A prominent Catholic organization is up in arms over photos plastered across a UK men's mag -- depicting a topless model scantily covered in priest regalia.

The photos of glamour model Lucy Pinder were published in the current issue of Loaded magazine -- along with the headline "For God's Sake" -- spoofing the retirement of Pope Benedict XVI.

Catholics are pissed ... Bill Donohue -- president of the Catholic League -- tells 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." (Nicely indeed)

Donohue sarcastically added, "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."

For her part, Lucy tells us, “The shoot is meant to be fun and very tongue-in-cheek," so chill, Catholics.

People say the Catholic Church is living in the past, That because of the mistakes handling the abuse scandal they should just shut up and take it. Did the leadership make mistakes OF COURSE, but what about all the good the church has done over 2000 years does that simply not count OF COURSE IT counts. If this was done against lslam , judism or any other religon people would be up in arms. Have other organizations have people who are members who have abused their power OF COURSE, so why attack the Catholic church because it stands up against Homosexuality, abortion and has deep pockets.

Yeah shut the **** up you stupid haters. If she did put on anything resembling Islamic garb, the whole ****ing world would be up in arms. I think all you haters are just sad that you didn't get bent over by your priest and that's why you're so pissed off!!!!! **** off you pieces of ****!!

Pinder is good. Kim K should do a photo shoot like that. Only the hottest woman on the planet deserves a shoot like that. I think all the salivating men in TMZ agree with me!

"So, chill Catholics."
Wow, way to dismiss their feelings, TMZ. I hate to point out the double standards here again, but would you have felt brave enough to tell the Muslims who were angry at South Park to "chill"?
At least say something better than "chill." You sound like a 1980's teenager who broke curfew and is trying to keep their parents from yelling at them.
Just curious: If I pose for a sexy picture in full Al Jolson-esque black face, but tell everyone that it was "meant to be fun and very tongue-in-cheek" does that absolve me of any insensitivity?
