First Beauty Pageant for Nuns

You’ve come a long way baby! Virginia Slims would be proud.  However, I’m not sure this is the type of activity that a nun should be focused on.  Next thing you know, they’ll be installing Nail Salons and Starbucks in all of the Abbeys.

Poster nuns to vie for ‘Miss Sister Italy’ title

The first beauty pageant for nuns debuts next month with the advent of “Miss Sister Italy,” aimed at erasing a stereotype of nuns as being old and sad, a newspaper reported Sunday.

…”You really think all nuns are old, stunted and sad? This isn’t the case any more, thanks to the arrival in our country of young and vital nuns,” notably from Africa and Latin America, Father Rungi added.  (more…)

I’m sorry but the Late Night Television Circuit is going to have a field day with this one.  Just wait…  You’ll be hearing zingers like, “Hey, did you hear about the beauty pageant for the nuns? – Yeah, too bad Mother Teresa is not still around, she would have won that hands down.”

Maybe they are just bored out their minds?  What is this world coming to?  I just don’t think it’s a very good idea. What do you think?

UPDATE: August 29, 2008 – I guess this isn’t too far out of the question as we see that presidential candidate, John McCain, just chose Sara Palin, Govenor of Alaska, and former beauty pageant winner as his VP running mate.
