No love lost for nude sculpture


UPI News Service, 07/16/2006 

Members of the Abiding Love church in Loveland, Colo., say they have no abiding love for a nude statue set to be placed a mile from their new church building.

The congregation and pastor object to the statue of two nude women and one man as inappropriate for its planned location, at a traffic roundabout, the Denver Post reports.

A city board last week approved the placement of the sculpture at the roundabout, which is also near a high school.

"It just doesn't make sense to put it in such a public place where kids can see it," said Pastor Kevin Klug of Abiding Love Lutheran Church.

The sculpture is a 13-foot-tall design featuring three nude figures, two holding the third aloft.

Sculptor Kirsten Kokkin said her creation tries to show how everyone is dependent on someone else's support.

The church is constructing a building less than a mile from where the sculpture is scheduled to be dedicated in August.

Most attendees at the city board meeting last week said they supported the work.

"I think most people will embrace this sculpture," resident Kimberly Kreutzer said.
