    Speaking of overreaction...lol  One chruch group doesn't represent an entire faith.  As for double standards, we wouldn't know because I doubt they have a male member in the magazine as well.  I've been asked to leave more than one church or church group, and I respect their right to do that.  I'm happy with the church that I am at.  You get over it.  She and her church group have different values.  Great readon to find a new one.

      Awood, I fully agree with you on that. I would never support someone who tries to go after any church to demand changes or complain about something. You like or you don't like. I agree.

        Lol, true.

         

        Actually the women are getting the better "deal" as they can gawk at the male nudies while us men have to endure the sausage fest.

         

        Such a double standard against men.

          btw, "new" level?

           

          50 years ago the mag would have been porn and no religious groups would have approved of it.

           

          And is this catholic group more prudish than any Islamic group?

            Nice. Who did they get to do this analysis - all those guys living in that house in the movie Knocked Up?

              I don't see how this is surprising. I'd have been SHOCKED if they DIDN'T drop her. Yes, as compared to Playboy, or full frontal nudity, these photos may not be "explicit" or "shocking" but for a woman who is the face of an institution that values modesty she had to know they wouldn't be a fan of those pictures. Not saying she's a bad person for doing them, but the result does not surprise me.

                Awood, they have plenty of nude male athletes including 77 year old Gary Player.

                  I didn't see anywhere that Miss Radwanska was shocked or surprised that she was dropped by her group. Maybe she's happy about it?

                   

                  I find it sort of funny how the article goes from talking about the priest's point of view to the cheeseburgers and cheesecakes Agnieszka likes to eat... lol...

                          Maybe she should switch to the Bethel Church in Redding, California. They didn't mind when Ryan Hall posed naked.

                            And I outraged that in a country on the other side of the planet, a church that I never heard of ending a working relationship with an athlete that I never heard of.  This kind of stuff just ruins my day.

                              The only one outraged seems to be the priest. Nobody else, here or elsewhere, is outraged and/or surprised about her being dropped by the group. We're only commenting.
