    It's not really about people's feelings but the colonialist mindset that many still have.

    Jesus certainly had something to say on childishly insulting others, even with cause... Funny how modern conservatives think it's somehow wrong to have good manners. (What they now call "PC" is what we used to call civility, as near as I can tell?)

    Well - we would have to disagree with some of the quoted passage anyway...

    e.g. "Throughout the Bible, public nudity is presented as shameful." - not so - for a start, Adam and Eve were actually naked publicly until they ate the fruit and became "like God" and "realized they were naked" (presumably God doesn't wear clothes either) - in fact, the Bible itself declares "And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed." Gen 2:25

    "Public nudity was one of the punishments meted out by God on sinners" - and yet God specifically instructed his faithful prophet Isaiah to walk around naked in public - Isaiah 20:2, 3

    In the end I suppose its a conscience thing - and for most Christians the decision to watch or not to watch depends mostly on who they think is watching them.

    Mormons are highly against nudity so that would be a no for them.

    If I'm not mistaken, I believe it's mandatory.

    Take a lot at the planet. Some civilizations are inferior. Do you think NK society is equal to even Russia? Heck it makes Saudi Arabia look like a bastion of freedom and liberalism.

    This does not mean X person is inferior.

    First, Fundamental preachers should not be paid attention to, they claim the Law of Torah doesn't apply to "Gentiles" but apply this cancellation of Torah that Paul calls dead and a curse and claimed was ordained by inferior angels and not God.

    Second you don't have to ask for permission to see a movie with humans not wearing clothes, this is our natural state and a necessary part of the art of movies being a part of life.

    Third fundies will never understand that the "clothes" Adam and Eve were given were there flesh, which is when they realized they were named because as innocent souls and the children of the Spirit of God they didn't have flesh. The "earth" they where created from was Edenic earth which is not actually on this planet (Eden).

    So seeing a movie with nudity is fine if you are not a prude or a radical and the woman is not forced against her will.

    Although puritanical Muslims would disagree, my American Muslim community complains about the negativity falsely associated with hijabs in comparison to the way some American women dress, saying freedom allows this (rightfully so) and the hijab, but asks what is worse, a woman who is barely wearing clothes or a modestly dressed woman with a head scarf?

    Personally I love it that women can wear whatever they want, I don't find sexiness offensive. Muslims in America really don't care about how non Muslim women dress.

    Why do Fundy pastors complain about nudity in movies?

    Why is it a question if free American Christians are "allowed" to watch movies that show boobs?

    Women have boobs. It's the hypocrisy of calling out Muslims for being virtuous and dressing modestly (exclude the face covering from my message, I hate those) and having public dress standards when they wish they could enforce them themselves.

    A minority of Christians think tight pants are slutty, that women should only wear below the knee skirts, don't allow them to speak from the pulpit and are more misogynistic than any Muslim I know.

    Of course I live in the states, but still, fundies are hypocritical and like Republicans love men's rooms at airports, so compensate with prudish rhetoric.

    Apt analysis Ashtara (Ishtar+Asherah?). Modesty and the appreciation of the nude form in art can coexist in society.

    Blimey! Where did you dig this up?
    My Granny and Grandad were very very proper.
    They considered themselves to be good Christians and thought that only middle class 'nice' people could be as such.
    And they had lots of Victorian and Edwardian mono-tint pictures of women looking heavenwards miserably, but these women wore very very thin lightweight clothing and the contours of their bodies were shown in intimate detail.
    One such picture showed a young woman holding a cross, staring upward, and her gown had slipped to show a breast.

    Very Holy, my Gran and Grandad.
    Of course if all those sweet young ladies are going to heaven, dressed in such gear, this could possibly swing the balance and send me back to communion after all these long years.

    :D

    False equivalence. It would be a better analogy if you said native Korean culture instead of the modern totalitarian dictatorship of the artificial North and the neo-liberal capitalism of the artificial South.

    Nope.
    Now you are declaring which cultures are valid cultures. Nothing more.

    No, I'm saying that your argument doesn't make any sense.
