SANTIAGO (Reuters) - A prominent fashion designer has sparked outrage in Chile by dressing up models like the Virgin Mary -- in some cases with ample, near-naked breasts.
The Roman Catholic Church condemned Ricardo Oyarzun's plans for a show featuring the models, and a conservative group tried unsuccessfully to block it in court.
Oyarzun said he had received telephone threats and had excrement smeared on his doorstep.
"There is no pornography here, there's no sex, there are no virgins menstruating or feeling each other up," Oyarzun said ahead of the catwalk show set to be held at a Santiago nightclub later on Thursday. "This is artistic expression."
I've been converted. I love the Virgin Mary.

If you are going to have to bear a kid without even enjoying the sExx0rs, the least God could do is give you some post child raising implants so you can at least look virginal.

Nothing says stop showing your holy bosoms like smearing excrement on a doorstep
