Touching the Untouchables

Jesus-leparThoughts on ritual within the New Testament (cross posted from a boundary crossing forum I was participating in). John called the "clean" unclean and gave them a ritual bath. Jesus called the "unclean" clean and gave them a ritual touch. Both rituals turned the popular understanding of "clean" and "unclean" upside down, breaking down boundaries. How would you ritually break boundaries in our culture if you were so inclined?
