Making a mocking picture of Jesus is an example of something that would be described as a sacrilege.
Origin of sacrilege
From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition
- Circa 1300, original sense “stealing something sacred". From Old French sacrilege, from Latin sacrilegium, from sacrilegus (“sacrilegious"), from phrase sacrum legere, from sacrum (from sacer (“sacred, holy")) + legÅ (“gather; take, steal"), from Proto-Indo-European *sak- and Proto-Indo-European *leÇµ-. Sense of “profanation" from late 14th century.
- Unrelated to religion, which is ultimately from ligÅ (“I tie, bind, or bandage"), from Proto-Indo-European *leygÊ°- (“to bind").
