Looks like we’re going to have to start playing catchup with the Chinese.  What a fantastic station!

one nation under god

leave a comment »

This painting is called One Nation Under God by McNaughton.

When will these crackpots go away?

Here is a good description from Disabled Kids Walk with Jesus, Lefty Journos with Satan, by Marian Wang in Mother Jones:

Front and center, the painting features Jesus Christ, creator of the heavens and earth and bearer of the US Constitution. (A few online wags have already compared the likeness to that of Viggo Mortensen’s Aragorn.) At his feet on his right you have the good guys—the farmer, the Christian minister, the US Marine, the handicapped child, the black college student, the schoolteacher who vaguely resembles Sarah Palin. You also have the young white man who represents the rising generation.

On the other side—Jesus’ left side—is another set of characters, including a professor holding a copy of Darwin’s Origin of the Species, a politician, a lawyer counting his money, a liberal news reporter, and a Supreme Court Justice weeping over Roe v. Wade. Oh, and who could forget Satan lurking in the shadows.
