My God in Heaven, this is a blasphemy if ever there was one. God help us. On the feast day of Our Lady of Guadalupe this horror is published? God please strike these people. Sancta Maria, ora pro nobis!

That’s a Virgin Mary? How did they go back in time and take a picture of her? Frankly, that picture looks pretty tasteful, not much unlike classic paintings of Mary nursing.

100 Years ago? Check your history. And it’s still illegal to be a Catholic priest there today, though they may not be enforcing it at the moment.

She ain’t the Virgin Mary either.

Saw the original post, with picture (picture was more tasteful that SI Swimsuits - but calling it the Virgin Mary was tasteless), before it was pulled. I didn’t know silicone was available then...

Not guilty.

I don't believe it's the Virgin Mary. Heck, I'd be surprised if that girl's a virgin at all.

It was in the 1920s the Mexican Government was killing Nuns and Priests trying to impose a Marxist State. The Cristos War ended in a failure. Mexico IS Catholic and will always be.

It is clear from Papal infallibility that Mary was perpetually clothed!

The girl on the cover isn’t nude. It was covered up.

Madonna performing `Like A Virgin’ followed by headliner Pope Benedicts’s rendition of `Only a Gigolo’?

If they had any cajones they’d put Mohammed on a bearskin rug on their cover.
Never happen . . .

I don’t speak Spanish; therefore, I cannot translate the words on the cover referring to the model on the cover. Does the word “Virgin” appear there? Could it be the model’s name is “Maria” or “Mary” and that readers will “adore” her once they see the nekkid pictures inside? I can readily see that inferences might be drawn to the Virgin Mary but is this a case of jumping to conclusions? By the way, is the stained glass supposed to be symbolic of something as well?

For the record, I think this is in terribly bad taste and blasphemous if indeed it is a reference to the true Virgin Mary.

Look, friend... there are certain things OFF LIMITS. Lewd illustrations “suggestive” of the Virgin Mary IS one of that catagory. If it were not so, then the mod would not have pulled the image, per my request. Such provocation will start a war here on FR... I hope you realize that.

I bet they would not have a chick pose as Fatima, the daughter of Mohammad.

Playboy is trying to drum up some publicity for their magazine (which is not profitable- it's basically a loss-leader for Playboy's other ventures). Posting a fake picture of the Virgin Mary, in a Catholic country, is going to get a lot of responses. They're trying to get people's goat, and you fell for it.

Its headline reads in Spanish: "We adore you, Mary."

“My God in Heaven, this is a blasphemy if ever there was one.”

I’m offended by this, but this is not blasphemy.

Blasphemy is an offense against God. The Virgin Mary is not God (or a diety of any type.) Blasphemy can only be commited against the Father, Son, or Holy Spirit.

It is interesting people call this blasphemy, yet you hear the name of Jesus Chist used as a swear word regularly in public and on television. That really is Blasphemy, but it has become so common people don’t even object to it anymore.

Promise? Sarah is one yummy mummy. You don't think she teeters around on those 4 inch heels has that sexy touseled hair to just look professional. She is working it. My wife is in PR and she knows what men like and works it also, does'nt mean she is a slut. That Virgin Mary though...way out of bounds, but Hefner is a godless pig anyway.

Come on y’all, if the word Playboy wasn’t behind it, it could be considered a nice, art photograph. It is less nudity than one would see in many images of the Virgin Mary that are considered classical deceptions.

Probably not even named Mary(Maria.) Playboy's journalistic integrity takes a big hit.
