(CNSNews.com) -- Starting Aug. 9, an art gallery in Southampton, Long Island, will display some of the photographs made by Nika Nesgoda, including images of the "Virgin Mary" portrayed by porn actors, such as Stormy Daniels (real name Stephanie Clifford).   Daniels allegedly slept with Donald Trump on one occasion in 2006, a claim that President Trump has denied. 

The images can be seen here.

Commenting on the pending art display, Catholic League President Bill Donohue said, "They really do hate Christians. The latest expression of hate will appear August 9 at a dumpy art gallery in the tony Long Island town of Southampton."

"The rich and famous will have the opportunity of seeing Nesgoda's masterpiece, 'Virgin,'" said Donohue. "It is a doctored photographic exhibit featuring porn stars such as Stormy Daniels posing as the Virgin Mary.  According to the promo for this trash, it says Nesgoda 'playfully interprets art history' and 'challenges the contemporary notion of iconography, identity, and religion.' Stunning."

Donohue continued, "I have a suggestion for this genius. Why doesn't she do an exhibit called 'Muhammad' that features Harvey Weinstein and Anthony Weiner as the prophet? That might attract a crowd, but I'd make sure to call the bomb squad first."

On her website, Nika Nesgoda explains her "Virgin" photographs and why she wanted pornography actors to depict Mary, the Mother of Jesus and arguably the most revered woman in history.

"My prints share something else with these artists: all the models are women whose profession is in sex performance," states Nesgoda on her website.  "It’s no secret that many of our most cherished artistic masterpieces feature prostitutes and other marginalized women as models. Artists and their models often lived on the fringes of society."

"Like the Virgin Mary, porn stars are icons," says Nesgoda. "They are both untouchable and misunderstood. Both have enormous followings of devotees."

Stormy Daniels poses as the Virgin Mary for the "Annuntiato," or Annunciation, when the angel Gabriel announces to Mary that she will conceive a child through the power of the Holy Spirit, and this child will be the Son of God.  The picture was made in 2002, before Stormy Daniels became national news.
