Of course, in a more mature and thoughtful world we would all be welcome to appear in public in our skin; it is, after all, our natural state. But the Godbotherers of all flavours have condemned the naked body as something causing shame, distress, offence and outrage. Surely their creator-deity, if such a power exists, would be proud of the beings he/she had created being shown to the world? But such an idea never seems to occur to them. And their common idea of 'shameful exposure ' merely highlights the fact that their so-called sacred texts are, obviously, the words of men, not of any supposed deity.
