Jesus Is On The Cover Of Portuguese Playboy

When I was a kid in Sunday school, I liked to refer to Mary Magdelene as Dirty Mags. I was 11. When you’re 11, that’s pretty much the cleverest thing in the entire world. Apparently, someone else saw the connection between religious and smutty magazines. And that someone was the editor of Portuguese Playboy.

The magazine depicts Jesus ministering to a variety of nude models. It’s probably sacrilegious enough to get people in a snit, which I imagine Playboy needs what with 1) magazines being headed for the great hereafter and 2) internet porn. Congratulations on your legitimate, non-punny cleverness, editor of Portugese Playboy.

    Well, we refer to the Pope as “Joey Ratz” in my house, in honor of his less than savory history as a member of the religious mafia, but somehow I find this use of the (supposed and stereotypical) image of Jesus as unsavory and offensive. Go figure.
