So exactly why is Middleton Grange School so outraged that a site to purchase ball photos was linked from NakedArt's "adult" site?
Perhaps the photography firm made a mistake by having the link on its site. But how exactly does a Christian school operating under stern Christian values explain giving money to peddlers of porn/erotica in the first place?
How stern are those values? The school's Statement of Belief gives us a clue:
So why were they in business with NakedArt in the first place?
The unity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in the Godhead.
The Sovereignty of God in creation, revelation, redemption and final judgement.
The divine inspiration and trustworthiness of Holy Scripture, as originally given and its supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
The universal sinfulness and guilt of human nature since the fall, rendering humankind subject to God's wrath and condemnation.
Redemption from the guilt, penalty, pollution and power of sin only through the sacrificial death (as our representative and substitute) of Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God.
The bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, His ascension, His mediatorial work and His personal return in power and glory.
The necessity of the work of the Holy Spirit to make the death of Christ effective to the individual sinner, granting repentance toward God and faith in Jesus Christ.
The indwelling and sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit in the believer.
The one holy, universal church, which is the Body of Christ, to which all true believers belong and in which they are united through the Spirit.
The resurrection of the body and life everlasting.
From the Press:
How does a group of stern moralising Christians do business with a firm called NakedArt, and not wonder what the "Naked" bit is all about?
Unfortunately, we did not vet that photographer," [Acting Principal] Vanderpyl said. "We didn't do due diligence and unfortunately, if we had known the background, we certainly would not have even entertained contracting this person to do the photos.
"We certainly take responsibility for the fact we didn't vet the photographer."
