Unholy Jesus Art: 12 Unorthodox Depictions Of Jesus (PHOTOS)

Merry Christmas, dear readers!

Last year we celebrated the holiday with the ten best depictions of Jesus in art. This time around we decided to celebrate some artists on the naughty list who portrayed Jesus in a not-so-holy light.

The following collection of unorthodox depictions of JC range from silly to racy to offensive to straight up weird. See the religious icon as a drunk, a babe, the POTUS, the King of Pop and so much more. Behold the naughtiest depictions of Jesus in art!

Which bad Jesus is your favorite? Let us know in the comments but be warned: some of these Jesus depictions are NSFW.
