Pageant for nuns canceled – Faith- msnbc.com

ROME – An Italian priest, who had planned an online “pageant” for nuns, has suspended the project, saying he was misinterpreted and had no intention of putting sisters on a beauty catwalk.

“My superiors were not happy. The local bishop was not happy, but they did not understand me either,” Father Antonio Rungi told Reuters by telephone from his convent in southern Italy on Tuesday.

“It was not at all my intention to put nuns on the catwalk,” said Rungi, a priest of the Passionists religious order, speaking from his convent in the town of Mondragone.

I’m reminded of the recent “Mormon Exposed” beefcake calendar controversy, which apparently got somebody excommunicated.
