Catholic Church upset over nude women advertising coffins

04 November 2014, 20:59

Abuja - A Polish casket company devised a unique way of advertising coffins by draping them with sexy women which has upset a Catholic Church, MirrorUK reported.


The casket company decided to do a calender shoot with topless models, caressing the coffins as a way to sell them.

The company has stated that a coffin is the last bed one sleeps with and has nothing to do with religion hence the new idea which is set to be a global trend.

The Catholic Church in Poland has labelled the campaign as inappropriate. Human death should be treated with much respect and not mixed with sex.

In the company's defence they want to show that a coffin should not be a sacred object and that it's just a product they are trying to sell.
