Nobody’s like a Virgin anymore

16 December 2008

Not quite credibly, Raul Sayrols, publisher of Playboy Mexico, claimed that “The image [of un-covered girl Maria Florencia Onori] is not and never was intended to portray the Virgin of Guadalupe or any other religious figure. The intent was to reflect a Renaissance-like mood on the cover.”  Nobody believes him, of course.  It “just happened” that the semi-nekked Onori appeared dressed in quasi-biblical garb in the December issue… just in time for the only religious holiday everybody in Mexico actually pays attention to… 12 December, the feast of the Virgen de Guadelupe.  By the way, Burro Hall found a link that  THOU SHALT NOT CLICK.

Now that you’re back … and have said three Hail Mary’s and made an Act of Contrition….

Sure, people were offended, but at least it was over something with a long history, and the offense was contemporary.    In  Santiago  Chile, Cardinal Jorge Medina is stuck in a time warp.  It was so 80s… not just the Mass in honor of that 80s guy, Augustin Pinochet, but the Cardinal’s sermon… dedicated to attacking the ” offense to God and a dirty stain on our heart,” who was not — as one might think — the day’s honoree, but a 50-year old mother of four who used to be famous.    Just like the dirty stain formerly known as  General Pinochet.

    Yeah, like what the oh-so-devout Pinochet did to those who opposed him.
