In a church, located on the grounds of the White Tail Resort in Ivor, Virginia, the Pastor and congregation do what a lot a people still do, they take the holy bible a little too literally. The White Tail Chapel's pastor's opinions and beliefs come, with no surprises from the book of Genesis, in which Adam and Eve are 'naked, the man and his wife were not ashamed, why anyone should be?!'
This small congregation doesn't care about "material things". They believe that the most respectful way to pray to the Lord Jesus, who was crucified naked,is to strip off their clothes.
Pastor Allen Parker the leader of the White Tail Chapel, claimes that Jesus accomplished some of his most important moments while being naked:
'When he was born he was naked, when he was crucified he was naked and when he arose he left his clothes in the tomb and he was naked,' he said. 'If God made us that way, how can that be wrong?'
He also explains that nudity is a great equaliser, as it becomes impossible when you're naked to be judge nor judgmental, as no one is wearing expensive, fancy clothes. Being naked allows his church to free itself from 'pretentious' clothing requirements.
The nudity is not restricted purely to preaching, however.
White Tail Resort describes itself as a "Family Nudist Community," that welcomes anyone who feels comfortable in their birthday suit. Visitors can enjoymany clothing free activities safe for all ages, outdoor and indoor with their families, such as dancing, pickleball, beach and aquatic volleyball and many other joyful activities that can be done in the nude!
