Meet the Church that Worships in the Nude Because ‘Jesus Was Born Naked’
Imagine traveling down a lonely road in eastern Virginia. It’s a Sunday morning. You’re a religious man, so you seek out a church. You find an unassuming white chapel and pull into its parking lot.
This is quaint, you think. I will worship here. I will probably not see an exposed dong any time soon.
You would be so very, very wrong.
From the Huffington Post:
White Tail Chapel invites all worshippers to come as they are– exactly as God made them.
Pastor Allen Parker told ABC 13 that many of Jesus’ most important moments happened while he was naked. “When he was born he was naked, when he was crucified he was naked and when he arose he left his clothes in the tomb and he was naked,” he said. “If God made us that way, how can that be wrong?”
Katie and Robert Church even got married here– with Robert saying his vows in the nude. The couple told NBC 12 that White Tail Chapel lacks the “pretense” sometimes found at other places of worship.
“People are more open as far as hearing the word of God, and speaking the word of God,” said Robert. He explained that nudity is a great equalizer, as it becomes impossible to judge someone based on their expensive or shabby clothes if they simply aren’t wearing any.
“Nudity is the great equalizer.” It’s a testament to Robert’s ability to bullshit that I kind of understand where he’s coming from. I mean, it’s totally insane and an excuse to hang dong in church—but he explains it so well! White Tail Chapel rules!
