Eric Blair - forgive me if I have not read your post properly (I'm very tired and not being tremendously observant) but the fact that The Passion of Christ is an 18(A) or R rated film, is because it visually tells and shows the mythical story of Jesus being crucified in all its gory detail, tells you something about what is acceptable and what is not.

If you put that image on crosses to be worn by people, in massive sculptures, in churches or by actually quoting from the Gospels etc - it is perfectly acceptable to do that - backing it up with visuals however is frowned upon.

Seems somewhat hypocritical to me.
