    Katherine Haik’s one-year reign as Miss Teen USA ends Saturday evening in Las Vegas. An active member of her youth group at First Baptist Church in Franklinton, Louisiana, in 2015 Katherine became the youngest-ever contestant to win the pageant. Alas, the then 15-year-old high school freshman did not earn her victory without making a certain compromise – disregarding the Scripture advising that “women should adorn themselves in respectable attire, with modesty and self control.” Well, one needn’t be prudish to wonder whether sashaying across a stage in high heels and a teensy bikini fits the Biblical definition of “modesty.” Especially,...

    The annual Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue arrives on newsstands Tuesday. It features three semi-nude babes on the cover. The issue is eagerly awaited by much of SI’s readership. However, let those of us who are Christ followers not deceive ourselves: the magazine’s swimsuit issue is nothing more than softcore pornography. Indeed, SI’s cover, celebrating the 50th anniversary of its swimsuit issue, actually is more sexualized than the cover of the latest issue of Playboy, which marks the skin magazine’s 60th anniversary, and which features the model Kate Moss in a bunny costume. What particularly offends about SI is its hypocrisy....

    Iran swimmer’s time goes unrecorded: “Her bathing suit was too revealing” An Iranian woman has taken on a difficult challenge: to swim as long as possible in open waters, where she has to wear a diving suit, a full jacket, and a headscarf. However, this was still not enough for the sports authorities, who she claims told her they could not record her latest swim because her outfit was too revealing. In Iran, women swimmers usually compete in all-female pools, and only at the national level, not abroad, to avoid being seen by men. Professional swimmer Elham Sadat Asghari, however,...

    A revealing image on the runway has some AirTran Airways flight attendants fuming. Orlando-based AirTran, which has its largest hub in Atlanta, has adorned one of its Boeing 737 jets with the image of a swimsuit-clad woman in heels, as part of a partnership with Sports Illustrated for the magazine's swimsuit edition. The promotion is ending and AirTran will remove the image from the plane soon, spokesman Christopher White said.

    A "see-through" swimsuit that will eliminate tan lines has been developed by British designers. The Tan Through range from Kiniki – launched earlier this month is transparent when held up to the light. Thousands of microscopic holes in the mesh fabric allow 80 per cent of sunlight to penetrate through to the skin. However the garment is covered in 'magic eye'-style animal prints and abstract patterns which confuse the eye so onlookers can only see a solid block of fabric. Described as "a chicken wire mesh material" the stretchy synthetic fabric is available as all-in-one swimsuit, bikinis, wraps and men's...

    The President of the United States of America. Since George Washington it has been a position of great power, great responsibility, great prestige. At some point Americans began to be less and less respectful of that office. President Bush was treated like a mentally challenged child wearing a crash helmet. Bill Clinton was portrayed as a sex hungry, over eater (not all portrayals were exaggerations). And Obama? Well he is treated as a God, a celebrity, and a sex symbol. Case and point? The cover of Washingtonian Magazine. This is going too far people. It is one thing to ridicule...

    [photo] Farrah Fawcett. Red swimsuit. Blonde hair. More teeth than is anatomically possible. Oooooh, that poster. Fawcett is now suing the pants off Bio-Graphics Inc., Pie International Inc. and T.N. Trikilis, accusing them of claiming they own exclusive rights to the photo, reproducing it and selling it. She’s demanding $100,000. Fawcett swears up and down that she “owns and possesses all the photographs and negatives of all the photographs taken at the photo shoot.”

 We’re showing you the poster in question, knowing full well that it’s virtually impossible for any man who grew up in the 70s to wipe it...
