A church in Virginia has decided to encourage its congregation to come to church butt nekkid. And you’re gonna love the reasoning behind it: Because Jesus was born naked. Of course, everyone was born naked. Gee, do you think maybe you’re just making shit up?
If you’re bored with regular church service and feel like your relationship with Christ could use more middle-aged naked people, we have some good news: A church in Virginia has decided to encourage nude prayer.
Pastor Allen Parker allowed nude worship at White Tail Chapel in Ivor, Virginia after deciding that the clothing requirements at other churches were “pretentious.” There’s also the fact that a certain Savior was born and killed while nude.‘When he [Jesus] was born he was naked, when he was crucified he was naked and when he arose he left his clothes in the tomb and he was naked,” he told CBS 12. “If God made us that way, how can that be wrong.”
Parker also said nude worship about being vulnerable and “baring his soul to Christ and leading his flock down that path of righteousness, no matter what they’re wearing.”
It’s called the White Tail Chapel. Seriously.
