Jesus & Naked Woman on Portugese Playboy Cover.

The Portuguese publishing partners of Playboy are going to Hell. Their July cover features Jesus Christ and a naked woman. Inside the magazine there are pictures of  Him looking at two seminude women who are about to kiss, as well as one of Jesus standing beside a topless woman on the street, according to a posting on www.gawker.com .

Gawker said the pictures were meant as a tribute to Jose Saramago, the Portuguese Nobel Prize-winning novelist who died last month. Saramago’s novel “The Gospel According to Jesus Christ” portrayed Jesus as a deeply flawed and human individual.

Playboy Enterprises Inc. is not happy.  They want to cut ties with their Portuguese partners for neglecting to get the cover approved before publication.  Of course Frestacom-Lisbon Media Publishing, was unable to be reached for comment. Their phone line was repeatedly busy and company officials did not return an e-mail request for comment from AOL news.

What were they thinking??
