Catholic charity dumps Radwanska over incredibly tame nude pics
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.
The photos are really quite mild. The first is seen above, the second (seen left) does reveal roughly 1.5 inches of Ms. Radwanksa's butt-crack. Here's the high-res version!
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.
