Why would anyone—religious or not, theist or not—find it appropriate for a bikini fashion show to occur in a church? Scratch liberalism and modernity; some good old common sense would suffice! Why oh why in a church, of all places? Should not the sanctity of God’s house deserve more reverence, to say the very, very least?
Their breasts hanging out, the altar plainly visible behind the butt cheeks of these women; what manner of sacrilege is this? Would they attend the church at any other time dressed that way? Would they even be allowed to enter the area, much less strut or go near the altar? Altar of whom exactly?
Not God? Not the creator of the heavens and the earth? Not the heavenly father who made all things? Why the fuss? some are asking. Why the fuss? How callous can you be? The word is “respect”. You may not believe in the Christian faith, but respect the place of worship.
And yes, such photo shoots have occurred in other churches, but this is not another church in another country. This our church. Our country. Our country which is named after the Holy Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Spirit).
The Spanish changed the Amerindian name “Iere” to La Trinity and British translated it to “Trinidad”. A name literally meaning God. And what are we seeing in The Holy Trinity Cathedral?
Will you go fix a car in the church? Will you go do your nails in the church? Will you go do a bank transaction in the church? No, you will not, because while those things are relatively mundane, they are simply things you do not do in a place of worship.
“And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of a harlot, and subtil of heart. She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house... Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.” (Proverbs 7:10,11 and 27)
Are the organisers of this fashion show really that unapologetic?
