This was just too funny to pass up:

The picture depicts Lohan as a Christ-like figure, draped in a white robe, posing with her arms outstretched, Crucifixion-style. And just in case anyone misses the blatantly obvious, hit-you-over-the-head visual reference to Jesus on the cross, Lohan wears a crown of thorns atop her platinum-blond extensions.

As is often the case when religious figures are depicted in popular media, the French magazine cover is already drawing fire from Christian thought-leaders.

Bill Donohue, head of the Catholic League, told Politics Daily: "Not only is the pose inappropriate, the timing is offensive." (Catholicism's most sacred season begins next Wednesday -- Ash Wednesday -- with the start of Lent, the annual period of pentinence and abstinence that leads up to the Easter celebration.)

I miss the red hair.
Yeah, she looked like a real person back then.
Maybe Lindsay should stay clear of Ireland. They have blasphemy laws there!
Bill Donohue is honestly one of my favorite people in the world. He's just so goddamned entertaining.
Yep, every time he speaks, he lowers the bar. He's like the intellectual integrity limbo king.
Okay. Donahue. Not everything is about offending YOU. Its freaking Lindsay Lohan.
well I'd nail her
*ehm* sorry :p
Well, someone had to make the joke...
Just don't print it out? =P
I'm hoping her next outrageous spoof will be on the Burqa. Hey, she, and maybe Paris Hilton, and Madonna, could all appear in Burqas. Hot! especially in, say, Miami.
sorry I missed it.
Whew! I saw the title of this post in my inbox and worried that it was Lindsay Lohan looking all stoned and strung out in an Atheist or Darwin T. I was all ready to respond with a facepalm and "Like we really needed that image."

But no, she's lending her wholesome look to Xianity. Cool.

On the upside, I look forward to Brit Hume's joy over her embracing Xianity since it is after all the best path to salvation.
