Local Pastor speaks out about Lindsay Lohan's crucifixion depiction.

The cover of their Spring/Summer 2010 edition, French magazine Purple, has a picture of Lindsay Lohan striking a crucifixion pose in a white robe open to her waist with a crown of thorns upon her head. 

David Gibson reported the reaction of the Catholic Church in his February 11, 2010 post in Politics Daily.  He wrote that Bill Donohue, head of the Catholic League, said, "Not only is the pose inappropriate, the timing is offensive…"

The Gethsemane Baptist Church of Mesquite, Texas was contacted for a reaction from their pastor, Jerry Brown.  Since he was out of town on Sunday evening, the Pastor of Theology responded with this prepared statement.  “Our local Christian community is saddened by this act of obvious mimicry.  There is never a good time for such an anti-Christ statement, even if it is considered art.  But to see this come from Purple’s Spring/Summer edition, which will be seen during Christianity’s Resurrection celebration, is a distasteful shame.  It is our belief that there is such a thing as free speech.  However free it is, it is not antireligious, but anti-Christ.  It is simply an unadulterated act against the one true God, not religion, but God and His Christ.”

Since this was in a French magazine, there is uncertainty in how much response to, or for, Ms. Lohan will be produced.  Whether it was a statement of her beliefs, or an attempt for publicity, neither can be considered as well thought out.
