Naked Snow-Woman in New Jersey Forced to Cover Up After Police Visit

Naked Snow WomanWhat the heck, is John Ashcroft still attorney general? Via USA Today:

The object of this desirable item has melted away, but the news itself is still hot and provocative.

After Rahway, N.J., police received an anonymous complaint about “a naked snow woman,” the artistic family behind a front-yard tribute to Venus de Milo says an officer paid a visit and told them to cover up their Greek goddess of love and beauty.

The story attracted local attention this week and then popped up on the international radar.

“We had a visit from the local police who told us that a neighbor had complained about the statue and we needed to cover it up or knock it down,” Elisa Gonzalez, who sculpted Venus with her daughter and son, told Agence France-Presse. “We didn’t want to have any problem with the police so we covered it up.”

She did say the unidentified officer complimented her. “He said, ‘It’s very good.'” Gonzalez outfitted Venus with a green bikini top and blue sarong.

    The Bible clearly teaches us that humans were formed in the image of Satan and are to keep their bodies hidden at all times???

    It's beautiful. Whoever complained is a philistine.

    The difference between art and porn is prurient interest. That is clearly art no different than half the statuary that you can find in Rome.

    Or as Bruce Willis' character on “Moonlighting” would say, “Ya know the difference between nekkid and nudes? Staples.” :-)

    This country seriously needs to pull the stick out of it's bum and relax. And get a laid a whole lot more until it gets over the sex phobia.

    Reminds of the time back in 2001 when Afgan terrorist leader Mullah Mohammed Omar ordered the destruction of the giant Buddhas of Bamyan statues for being “offensive”. The scale of the action is irrelevant. I was sickened then and I’m sickened now by the actions of these intolerant extremists.

    If God wanted us to be naked, we’d have been born that way.
    So glad we have police looking out for our children.
    I only hope the world can come to sanity and put some clothes on all those old perverted statues like ‘David’ and ‘Venus de Milo’. Can we please whitewash the obscene Cistine Chapel ceiling? Thank you, government!

Now this is biblical, but it does happen from time to time. Check out the video below from the BBC documentary series Supernatural which explains the phenomenon. Simon Crisp writes...
