Mag Says Cover Has Nothing to Do With Virgin Mary

Last week we linked to this post by Laura Martinez showing you a Mexican Playboy cover with a model all dudded up as the Virgin Mary -- if by dudded up you mean, wearing a habit and nothing else. I didn't post the cover because I didn't want to have anything to do with it. But now, CNN is quoting the magazine as saying "The image is not and never was intended to portray the Virgin of Guadalupe or any other religious figure. ... The intent was to portray a renaissance-like mood on the cover." Riiiiggghht. Well, there's the image over on the left. Maybe he's right. The naked woman wearing a habit standing in front of stained glass and behind the phrase "Te Adoramos, Maria"--that can't possibly be Mary or any other religious figure. Maybe for Ramadan, the Indonesian version of Playgirl can try something similar with the prophet Mohammad.
