That's not a paradox, actually.
Catholicism has been okay with physical beauty since the Renaissance. Remember Michelangelo, Raphael and the other ninja turtles? Their art is full of naked and half-naked beautiful men and women, and a lot of it was commissioned by the Catholic church.
On the other hand, a lot of Protestant churches were much more anti-sexuality. Especially the one known as, you know, the Puritans. Which, incidentally, was one of the first Protestant denominations to be established in North America.
That's why non-Anglo Europeans (and Latin Americans too) are okay with sexy stuff, and Murkans and Brits are all uptight.
