Some world religions are firm in a belief that the human body was
created, and should forever be regarded, as a sinful object. It is
worth remembering that all men and women are born nude. (A popular
nudist slogan, meant only partially in jest, is "If we were meant to
be nude, we would have been born that way.") In the Christian
tradition, Adam and Eve were expelled from Eden only after they
clothed themselves, in rebellion against God. And some people believe
that the display of the nude body is a glorification of its Creator.
Rejection of the body is the work of man, not of God.
