On a blog such as this, intended for family reading, we do not normally show rude pictures, but on this occasion we shall make an exception. The real shocker was to see fancy dress such as the following, which can only be described as "blasphemous".
Rihanna and friends dress up as bishops.
Contrast this with the quiet dignity shown by a senior Anglican bishop who put in an appearance.
Dame Sarah Mullally, Anglican Bishop of London.
However, the promoter of "Heavenly Bodies" had many other horrors up his sleeve.
Barbara Windsor from "Carry on Nurse", transformed into a mock-priest.
Still, it was not just the female models who caused offence. Jim Martin, a male model, writer of trashy books, and notorious bridge-builder, took part dressed as a Jesuit priest, and he even managed to fool some people into thinking he was the real thing.
An obscene parody of a Catholic priest.
"How could the Vatican allow displays such as this?" you may ask - surely, one of the worst distortions of Catholicism since the bishops of England and Wales decided to speak out on the Alfie Evans case? Why, even Piers Morgan, not normally thought of as a strait-laced Catholic, was horrified. As with many things that emanate from the Vatican, the explanation is beyond us.
Three extras from the new "Pope Francis" film turn up dressed as cardinals.
The actors in the above photo managed to gatecrash the event by persuading the organizers that they were real cardinals, but the mistake became obvious once they opened their mouths.
Fortunately, Cardinal Dolan was on hand, and he always knows how to maintain the dignity of a Prince of the Church.
