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.

"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?

I think they need to worry about other things than whether or not a half naked chick has a cross around her neck. Like pedophiles maybe.
Catholics irritate me to no end. They let go of the big major problems and focus and nitpick on the tiny little things.

GLAMOUR model????? Are you kiddin tmz?? Good her, she's not modeling anything glamorous besides her boobs. She's a step away from being playboy model or a pornstar more like it

First, she is just an idiot - blame the magazine. Second, why is it acceptable to be so nasty to another's religion. I agree w/ the church (surprisingly) that she's going to turn heads with most of her boobs out anyway. Why does she have to insult others to get attention?

Why don't we wrap her in Muslim attire, see how funny that is! Why should the Catholics have to get over it, to chill? Or how about posing with gay men and making fun of them? Wouldn't that be funny!! You don't like it, get over it, chill out.

Oh right, of course the Catholic was like "We're REALLY OFFENDED! She's lucky we're not Muslims!"

Nothing wrong with that statement at all.

Hey maybe I should go stand outside the studio and yell at the people making Supernatural for portraying pagans as violent murderers.

Oh wait, I don't car. Because I don't need everyone to agree with me - WHAT IS THIS WITCHCRAFT. No pun intended.

This was done in very poor f***ing taste. Seriously?!? They were so desperate for publicity that they'd stoop so low as to disrespect someone's religion for magazine sales? And her dumb audacity to defend it....hell is running out of space

And TMZ's vile remark for the Catholics to 'chill'. This site is getting more and more disgusting. But they had the audacity to be offended when Le Bron James post his wedding date during their Jewish holiday/religion whatever...F***ing A**Holes!!!

Lucy is definitely NOT the Lucy from Charlie Brown! If her breasts are implants, then her surgeon is incredible! I actually think the photo is beautiful and creatively designed.

The Catholics needs to clean up their own act before they get to be outraged about anything.
