New York judge temporarily bars bare buttocks billboards

NEW YORK (AP) - In response to a minister's complaint, a New York City judge has temporarily barred bare buttocks billboards that a bidet company had planned to put up in Broadway's theatre district on a building that houses a church.

State Supreme Court Justice Marcy Friedman ordered the temporary restraining order against raising the billboards at the request of Rev. Neil Rhodes, pastor of the interdenominational Times Square church.

The billboard ads, featuring naked buttocks with smiley faces, were to promote the Washlet, a bidet-toilet seat. They were to go up for 30 days beginning July 1 on two sides of the building that houses the Times Square church, which claims 8,000 members and its Bible school and day care centre.

The judge ordered Rhodes and the church to post a US$90,000 bond pending a decision on the issues discussed at a conference between the parties. She said the bond would go to the defendants for damages and costs - including lost revenues - if the court determines the church was not entitled to an injunction.

"The court finds that the motion presents novel and significant issues on which further legal authority is required," the judge said, suggesting she needs to do research before she could decide the case.

Rhodes had asked the court to block billboard ad company Van Wagner Communications LLC from putting up the cheeky displays, claiming they would interfere with the church's religious mission.

A lawyer for Van Wagner did not immediately return calls for comment Monday. No one could be reached at the church. Not even the leetle Baby Jesus. And the Madonna was out of order.


It's rare for bare arses to interfere with a church's emissions.

Bad news for Nativity scenes. Only burqa births for Baby Cheeses from now on, and no Holy Knob to be shown at all.

The bidet business will launch that church to the moon if they win the case.
