Despite being ranked the fourth best tennis player in the world, Agnieszka Radwanska, 24, of Poland is learning that the moral teachings of her church still apply to her, the Breitbart website reports today (July 16, 2013).
Although known for frequently broadcasting her Catholic faith, the tennis star decided to pose nude in ESPN's Body Issue. The decision has resulted in her removal from any future campaigns of the Polish youth group Krucjata Mlodych (meaning, Youth Crusade), which had previously featured her in ads where she spelled Jesus with tennis balls and encouraged youth to be proud of their faith.
Now, the group has ended the relationship, declaring the nude shoot to be "immoral behavior."
A senior Catholic priest, Father Marek Dziewiecki, was particularly critical of Radwanska saying, "It's a shame that someone who has declared their love for Jesus is now promoting the mentality of men looking at a woman as a thing rather than a child of God respect and love."
