The Rev. France Davis doesn’t want any nude Adam-and-Eve figures at his Calvary Baptist Church—even if they were painted by the famed Michelangelo himself. See the full article by Peggy Fletcher Stack, “Does nudity belong in religious art?



  1. Afraid the article is blank. The author seems to want money for anyone to reproduce her work, which is understandable. But if you can’t even see it, how can you know if you want to pay her to reproduce it?

  2. Try searching the Salt Lake Tribune. This is where the article appeared. Calvary Baptist Church and the named pastor and the writer of the article are all in Salt Lake City.
    Perhaps the fig leaf didn’t cover enough of the article; or, perhaps it is fully covered and therefore invisible.
