OCEAN ISLE BEACH, N.C. (AP) -- Living up to the Genesis verse
``naked and not ashamed,'' Christian nudists are planning a weekend
retreat of hot-tubbing, karaoke and reading Bibles in the buff.
``We believe you can be a nudist and religious, too,'' said
Jerry Love, a Methodist who has already booked 60 reservations from
around the country for the getaway at his Whispering Pines family
His wife, Carol, a Baptist, added: ``Christians can help to make
nudism wholesome, family-oriented fun.''
Christian nudists say their practice is rooted in biblical
teaching. They note that Adam and Eve put on fig leaves only after
they ate the forbidden fruit.
The Loves, who plan to make the gathering and annual event, say
the conference will give Christian nudists a safe place to share
Two Baptist ministers, whom the Loves refused to name, will lead
seminars on how Christians can be positive influences in the nudist
Clothing is optional for all events, except the pool and hot
tub, which are nude-only areas. Children are allowed to wear
clothes at all times.
``We're not going to allow any open sex, drugs or parties,''
Love said. ``We're a very conservative group of Christians who just
don't like to wear clothes.''
