Lindsay Lohan is in the news again, and this time she's posing as Jesus Christ on the Spring-Summer 2010 cover of Purple Fashion magazine. (published in France - oh don't you just love the French!) This girl seems to invite criticism and controversy into her life every way possible.
Lindsay Lohan was once known as an aspiring actress and a singer, now she is known as a drunkard and a lesbian - but I guess that just wasn't enough.
In case you don't see the resemblence to Jesus in the picture, or think "Certainly that is not who she is imitating", upon closer inspection you may notice an imitation crown of thorns upon her delicate brow.
Bill Donohue, head of the Catholic League, told Politics Daily: "Not only is the pose inappropriate, the timing is offensive." This is because Ash Wednesday is next week, signaling the start of Lent - the most sacred season for those of the Catholic faith. It is an annual period of pentinence and abstinence that leads up to Resurrection Sunday.
Recently Lohan has referred to Hinduism by posting on Twitter that she's "all about Karma...what goes around comes around."
"If she believes that, then it behooves her to apologize to Christians before it's too late," Donahue said, adding that she is "spiritually homeless" and "would benefit by converting to Christianity."
