Blog Photo - Charity dumps Radwanska over tame nude picsYou'll see 24-year-old Polish tennis phenom Agnieszka Radwanska tastefully nude in the new ESPN the Magazine Body Issue, you'll see her at the U.S. Open next month and you'll see her at No. 4 worldwide in the current women's tennis rankings. But you won't see Agnieszka Radwanska as a celebrity spokesperson for the Polish Catholic charity Youth Crusade anymore. The charity has dropped Ms. Radwanska from her promotional position after her PG-rated naked photo shoot for the ESPN publication.

I honestly haven't watched ten seconds of women's tennis since about September of last year. Next time I do, though, I know for whom I will be rooting.

The Polish organization Youth Crusade has fired Agnieszka Radwanska as a Catholic charity ambassador after pictures from her extremely tame nude photo shoot were published. "It's a shame that someone who has declared their love for Jesus is now promoting the mentality of men looking at a woman as a thing rather than a child of God worthy of respect and love," Father Marek Dziewiecki told the Telegraph. "If she meets a man who she can truly love and establish a happy family and raise Catholic children, then she would probably have to hide these pictures from relatives."

Yeah because it's not like the Catholic church ever has to hide anything.

Agnieszka Radwanska had previously done photo shoots for Youth Crusade and appeared in a hilariously low-budget TV commercial for them in 2010.

It should be noted that Poland is a rather old-school Catholic country. Remember "Solidarity" hero Lech Walesa? He's an anti-gay marriage crusader now. Poland is known as "Europe's most Catholic country", and has the highest weekly Catholic church attendance rate of any nation in the world.

Not everyone in Poland is completely uptight, though. Some of the Polish blogs are having some Photoshop fun making memes and mashups mixing images from Ms. Radwanka's religious photo shoots and nude photo shoots.

for thousands of years men have felt compelled to control women as things and property.  Ever since that BS story about adam's rib written by some frustrated old fool that wanted to subjugate women right away classifying them as secondary creations made from man not God.  It's moronic.  Control Control Control.

Then again one suspects being a tennis star might also mean contemplating life beyond traditional  corridors. Assuming such ideas don’t offend the Catholic church.
Isn't it time a woman be allowed to do with her body as she wishes...?

Maybe if she posed with an altar boy they would be more understanding!  The catholics are so uptight about everything!  So glad I'm not one.

Nudism is NOT about seeing or being seen. It's about de-stressing, relaxing, and returning to innocence. It's about accepting yourself and others for who you are, how you act, and what you say, rather than what you look like, wear, or own. If you're looking to ease your way into the nudist lifestyle, nudist resorts , nudist beaches and nudist dating sites  are available that offer a slightly less adventurous experience
