ROUTES: Do you find any contradiction between your religious image and your sex-symbol image? 

TEDDY: No, because I don’t think people confuse the two. You can have a strong belief without opening a church or anything like that. I’m not into that. Besides, I’ve analyzed it and I think that makes a person even more sexy, you know, when they have a firm belief. I don’t want to throw the church into it, but the way Jesus Christ did things was very sexy. He knew what he was doing. Yeah man, he had it.
