An online beauty contest for nuns

An Italian priest is organizing an online beauty pageant for nuns. His reason is to expose nun’s beauty within the Catholic Church and to fight the belief that nuns are old and stern. The contest is called, The "Miss Sister 2008" and will start in September on Rev. Antonio Rungi blog. All nuns from around the world are welcome to join in this contest. This contest creates visibility for nuns around the world. However, the visitors to his site will have a month to vote for the nun they consider a . A profile will include information about their life, vocation and photos. And it is up to the nuns to choose whether to pose with the customary veil or with their heads uncovered. The said contest doesn’t involve bathing suits. He hopes that this contest will be successfully. This sounds ridiculous to me, but it is quite interesting. Let’s see what’s going to happen next month.
