These Semi-Naked "Priests" Want To Challenge Your Opinion Of The Orthodox Church
The Orthodox Calendar group's 2014 calendar features "priests" in the nude so as to "pay tribute to gay marriage." Obviously.
The Orthodox Calendar group has created a 2014 calendar which features nude and semi-nude members of the Orthodox Church.
The men in the calendar are models, not actual priests, but obviously some people are still offended.
Their "ironic" approach to the church involves the "priests" being portrayed in various situations they probably wouldn't normally be photographed in.
Such as lurking outside a man's window who is simply minding his own business and enjoying a hot chocolate, or gawking at a half-naked man making while he cooks him a fancy breakfast.
The calendar also features "homoerotic undertones" which are subtly demonstrated in the Orthodox Calendar 2014 teaser trailer.
Orthodox Calendar also say the calendar involves "gentle ironic humor" – so gentle.
Orthodox Calendar think such undertones and demonstrations of gentle irony are going to help change how being gay is viewed in the Romanian Orthodox Church, so good luck to them.
