Kim Kardashian Crucified By Catholic League For Wearing Virgin Mary Dress
Kim Kardashian managed to piss off a whole bunch of Catholics when she wore a sheer, black mini-dress with an image of the Virgin Mary stitched in between her two breasts.
The 36-year-old reality television star stepped out in the see-through outfit on Wednesday in Los Angeles. Criticism came crashing down on Kardashian Thursday when the Catholic League chastised her for wearing the religious symbol on her dress, which they believe to be “exploitative,” Page Six reports.

“We’ve never seen any indication that Kim Kardashian venerates the Blessed Virgin Mary — she is a former porn star — so her latest headline-grabbing stunt can only be seen as exploitative,” the Catholic group said in a statement.
The Catholic League backed their claim of the exploitative fashion statement by pointing out that the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star is now selling candles on her Kimoji site that feature Kim depicted as the Virgin Mary.
The group also noted several inappropriate items that are being sold alongside the candle that is placed between a “‘fire weed sock’ and an ‘ass tray’; the former celebrates marijuana use and the latter is a photo of her bare mammoth behind.”
It’s doubtful Kardashian gave it so much as a second thought that the dress would offend anyone before she stepped out in the Dolce and Gabbana design.
