What do you think of someone having religious art displayed, if it's from a religious path or tradition that is not followed in that home? Across the board fine, or across the board tasteless, or something in between?
What makes it inappropriate to you? What makes it acceptable? Does it depend on the art in question - for instance, a psychedelic velvet Jesus painting is just tacky, but a small beautifully carved dancing Shiva statuette is not? Does intent matter? Context?

I agree with anon 40. It's their walls!
Personally I would rather see religious art than something like a Picasso. I don't get it! My kids painted better than that when they were 3.

i like some religious art. i wouldn't get offended with anything anyone had in their own house, and someone shouldn't be offended by what i have displayed in my house, if they dont like it they dont have to look at it..and if their in my house, their one of my friends, so they know what kind of stuff will be in my house before entering lol. (satanic stuff)..i hope one day i'd get my grandpas painting of jesus, even though im not christian, but because its my grandpas painting and i have most of his anyways..its a great painting, and its one of those paintings that looks like his eyes are following you when you walk by LOL
