BOSTON -- Catholic groups in Boston have attacked a health club ad in January's issue of Boston magazine, which features nuns drawing a nude man, reporters said.
The Catholic League, the Archdiocese of Boston and the Catholic Action League of Massachusetts have all said the controversial Equinox Fitness Club ad is offensive to their communities, WCBV-TV in Boston reported Wednesday.
"Our ad campaigns are based on personal motivation and fantasy and throughout history the body has been considered a form of art," the company said.
The ad "portrays a callous contempt for the sensibility of Catholics," Catholic Action League of Massachusetts member, C.J. Doyle told the newspaper.
