A priest has been accused of blasphemy for allowing a fashion show featuring scantily clad models to take place in his church.
Clothes created by Polish designer Arkadius Weremczuk were modelled at the Holy Mary of Lourdes Church in Jette.
They included see-through blouses with embroidered crucifixes and small tops featuring portraits of Jesus.
Priest Marc Scheerens said he was challenging the last taboo of nudity in church.
Het Nieuwsblad reports an organisation called Belgium and Christianity has accused the 54-year-old of blasphemy.
Belgian Cardinal Godfried Danneels said he wants to watch a film of the invitation-only event before deciding whether to take action. He said: “A priest is free to do in his church what he likes but we can punish him afterwards.”
Mr Scheerens is reported as saying: “A church is not the house of God. A church is the house of everyone, fashion designers included.
“And God couldn’t have been shocked by it, since he was not invited. All guests knew exactly what they could expect. There was no churchgoer present who could take offence.”
