Catholic League President Bill Donohue said Wednesday that a photographic exhibit featuring porn stars such as Stormy Daniels posing as the Virgin Mary constitutes the latest artistic assault on Christianity.

Is she immersed in a jar of piss?
I am willing to bet good money that there were no off-color depictions of Muhammed in the show.
They think they are so clever....
“Liberals” have so many creepy ways to express their bottomless hatred for the rest of us... Are they ALL sociopaths on that side?
Madonna’s been doing stuff like that since 1986.
Ah yes,. Brings back fond memories of “piss Christ”, funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
Would that be next to the exhibit that portrays abortionists as doctors?
Try that with Islam. These cowards know Christians will do nothing and muzzys will behead them.
Yet another evil and hateful attack on Christianity by the elites.
Other examples of their so called “art” are a crucifix in urine, the Blessed Mother covered with dung and Jesus as a homosexual.
IRGIN is a photographic compendium series that brings elements of church-commissioned paintings to large-format, color slide film Cibachrome prints.
The photo session was shot with bold, larger than life photo collages in mind, using imagery of artists Caravaggio, Martini & Memmi, Rubens, Botticelli, Goya, and others. Saturated colors, chiaroscuro lighting, and careful attention to skin and fabrics are the trademarks.
My prints share something else with these artists: all the models are women whose profession is in sex performance.
Its no secret that many of our most cherished artistic masterpieces feature prostitutes and other marginalized women as models.
Artists and their models often lived on the fringes of society. The mainstream eventually came to accept their art. But their lifestyles are often romanticized or scorned.
Art often serves as an alibi for pornography. Or else pornography is a name for art we find excessive.
Like the Virgin Mary, porn stars are icons. They are a cultural force, but they are rarely thought of as real people. They arent expected to have personality or humanity.
If we look at them, we dont really see them.
The Virgin Mary and porn stars serve as perfect reflective surfaces for fantasy, redemption, or both.
One of the models, the entrepreneurial Dee [Noli Me Tangere], says that a porn star is placed on a pedestal of trashiness, while the Virgin is placed on a pedestal of innocence.” They are both untouchable and misunderstood. Both have enormous followings of devotees.
There is a backstage to the Virgin in the Masters work, but it gets to the same root. There is something both primal and cultural about iconography and pornography, virgin and whore.
The artists success lies in the shadows of blurred distinction. Throughout history, women as artistic muses were expected to be one or the other or both.
Depending on the backdrop, the time of day, and the talent of the artist.
VIRGIN is an interpretation of these classic works in the light of the present. It challenges contemporary and historical notions of celebritydom, class, identity, and divinity.
The series starts with the Immaculate Conception and follows the narrative of her life, death, and Assumption into heaven. Attention is given to the use of classic Catholic iconography, such as the exposed breast (humanity) and feet (humility).
In any time period, iconic portraiture is subject to the laws of social and political life, but every work of art functions and has meaning on many levels. Its the secret intermediary between human beings and divinity.

But don’t you dare draw a cartoon of mohamhhead.............
Really, a porn star as the Virgin Mary. How sick ..
Sorry, but I have a hard time taking Bill Donahue seriously anymore. Bill can speak out against Stormy Daniels once hes gotten serious about the preening divas he defends day in and day out.
No surprise. They hate Christianity and Trump.
Waiting for liberals to declare this as “hate speech”...
...aaaaaaaand - don’t bother.
Wouldn’t Mary Magdalene have been more appropriate?
Talk about casting against type in a role....
