Well, once again a religious group is threatening our constitutional right to admire a different NBA cheerleader in a bathing suit every month. The American Decency Organization is hopping mad at the Detroit Pistons for a recent team calendar which features members of the Pistons dance team in skimpy bathing suits.

"To me, this is a form of prostitution," said Barbara Rotary of Pontiac, who said she saw the calendar while Christmas shopping and alerted the group. "The Pistons are profiting from using women's bodies this way."


Pistons president Tom Wilson said the calendar is artistic and tasteful and contains "images anyone could see on the beach. The girls don't look sleazy or cheap."

As always, our questions are many:

1. To what Michigan beach is Wilson referring?
2. Does the calendar note foreign holidays?
3. Are the Pistons any closer to getting a solid backup point guard who can play perimeter defense?
4. Which month is the nudiest?

To all you Christian moms, we salute you. Keep up the good fight. And to you Christian dads, better hurry — only 22 hours left to bid.
