A church in the US state of Virginia has taken the bizarre decision to allow its congregation to attend services Unclad. Pastor Allen Parker, the leader of White Tail Chapel in the town of Southampton, said he came to the decision to allow
Unclad worship after concluding the clothing requirements of other churches were overly ‘pretentious’, and decided his own flock should be free to forgo such materialism if they desire.
He believes he is in good company too, claiming many of the most important moments in the Bible happened while the protagonists were Unclad, including Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection.
