Holy smokes!! Have a group of priests gotten naked for a new calendar? Creators of the 2015 "Orthodox Calendar" are claiming that the calendar's nude models are "members of the Orthodox Catholic Church". As well as providing the obvious man candy, the company hopes that the "Seven Deadly Sins" themed calendar will raise awareness of LGBT rights, particularly in areas of Eastern Europe still tightly in the grip of the archaic traditions of the Orthodox Church. The company describes the calendar as "the brainchild of a group composed mostly of Orthodox eastern Europeans of the former communist region. The primary goal was to create the very first organized global effort against homophobia in the Orthodox Region." At the beginning of a promotional video for the calendar, the company states:
This video contains images of men who appear therein as priests. Viewers are free to accept or reject this. By posting this video, we are not confirming or denying the identity of these men. However we consider irrelevant the true identities of these men. What is important are discussions generated by this video in respect of the role of gay men in religious orders, corruption in organized religions, treatment of minorities by society, etc.
In other words, it's highly unlikely that these models are actually priests. It's doubtful any priest would take such a great risk of "exposure", plus I don't think there's a priest alive with the time and money to hit the gym as often as these guys do. So while this calendar may not feature real priests, the photos are beautiful, the men are gorgeous, and it's all for a great cause, so I say "amen" to that! Check out the NSFW photos here.
