Lindsay Lohan's Christ complex lands her in hot holy water

lindsay-lohan-christ.jpg Lindsay Lohan is in bubbling hot holy water. Lilo's cover for the French magazine, Purple, has come under fire by Christian groups.

The picture shows Lohan as a Christ-like figure, draped in a white Ungaro dress, with her arms outstretched, as if on a cross. 

Did we mention she's accessorized with a crown of thorns?

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 week-- Ash Wednesday -- with the start of Lent, the period of penitence and abstinence that leads up to Easter.
