Polish Coffin Co. Has Nude Women on Calendars; Cath. Church Rips Co.for Mixing Death and Sex

A Polish coffin manufacturer has caused a stir by publishing a calendar featuring nude women posing with the company's products, the Big News Network website reports today (December 1, 2013).

The company, Lindner coffins, made the calendar as a stunt, but the owner, Zbigniew Lindner, insists people shouldn't be offended by images of nude women and coffins.

"We wanted to show a coffin shouldn't be a sacred object  -- it's furniture, the last bed you'll ever sleep in" -- he said.

Others -- including Catholic Church officials -- disagreed and have called for the calendars being sold for charity, to be pulled. In a statement, the Catholic Church in Poland said: "Human death should be respected and not mixed with sex."
