American photographer Albert Arthur Allen worked during the 1920s, a time when the United States was open to artistic exploration. Allen s photographs of the Flapper Women, wore their hair in bobs, high heels, and not much else. Unbeknownst to him, Allen had taken on the stigmatized world of nudity and politics in art.

Allen lived and worked in California, having left behind a wealthy New England upbringing and becoming a hunchbacked victim of a motorcycle accident. Allen chose to live a life of obscurity, his work only known by a select group of clientele who purchased his photographs of comely young women, such as in the Chorus Line Prints.

Although this genre of photography was already considered academic in Europe, Allen s photographs were at best described as high camp. Despite the criticism, Allen maintained that his photographs conveyed human appeal, and that the true nude gives a version of beauty, both physical and spiritual the two great needs of humanity.

New Pope Has Crazy Ideas That Church Should Not Be ‘OBSESSED’ With Gays, ‘Bortions And Slut Pills

1

Via: Wonkette

Pope Francis, in the first extensive interview of his six-month-old papacy, said that the Roman Catholic church had grown “OBSESSED” with preaching about 1) abortion, 2) gay marriage and 3) contraception, and that he has chosen not to speak of those issues despite recriminations from some critics.

“It is not necessary to talk about these issues all the time […] The dogmatic and moral teachings of the church are not all equivalent. The church’s pastoral ministry cannot be obsessed with the transmission of a disjointed multitude of doctrines to be imposed insistently.

“We have to find a new balance,” the Pope continued, “otherwise even the moral edifice of the church is likely to fall like a house of cards, losing the freshness and fragrance of the Gospel.” (freshness and fragance, at last!)

personal thought:

I predict some of ‘Dudes in the red socks’ are going to start asking for a ‘recount’, and soon.
