Various - Piss Christ and other Christ blasphemy
There's presently manifestations in a French town called Avignon (the ex-city of the popes when France was the church's elder daughter) against the Andres Serrano's 1987 Piss Christ (for information, piss is a sterile liquid so nothing here that would put dirt on this religious icon). An occasion, on a sunday, a Christian day, to gather some interesting blasphemy pictures (mostly digital manipulations but the ones I like the most are those done with not too much technology) about the Christ (I'm not an antichrist addict and all that satanic bullshit, on the opposite I think Jesus is an interesting figure and that his message is one of the rare with some greek ones to still be relevant today, but I hate sacralisation). Of course, there are plenty of nude female crucified (with a few only that have something new to offer) but here I preferred to put shots with a more rude political or sexual provocation, also the most interesting visually and even one that seems quite old and shows this topic is not totally the consequence of contempory decadence. I never got any insulting message but who knows, this may be the beginning.
