The 1989 film ''Visions of Ecstasy'' was the only film ever banned in the UK for blasphemy.

Following the abolition of the blasphemy laws in England and Wales in 2008, the film was eventually classified by the BBFC for release as 18-rated in 2012.

Visions of Ecstasy cleared for release after 23 years

Short film banned for 'blasphemous libel' since 1989 finally gets classification from BBFC

Visions of Ecstasy contains a scene, as the BBFC describes it, "in which a figure representing St Teresa of Avila interacts sexually with a figure representing the crucified Christ". This was enough for it to fall foul of the Video Recordings Act 1984 (designed to take "video nasties" out of the market place), and the film, directed by Nigel Wingrove, subsequently became a cause celebre for censorship campaigners, but ended in failure at the European Court of Human Rights in 1996.

Let's not fool ourselves. This was not because of general anti-religion posting but anti-Islam.  I guarantee if he'd posted something that bashed any Christian denomination, he would have been cheered.
