    Talking 'Greatest' Picture EVER... prove me wrong CA

    A first glance and I almost trudge along but then it hits me. My brain stirs, my heart races, its dawns on me. You've found the greatest picture ever. I can do nothing but stare, every gesture, every slight nuance, the characters, the faces..... my eyes roll back in my head and I start to froth at the mouth....

    I find it awesome how Jesus was born in the east and is white. I just love it. I also love how he's American even though he was born far before the America/USA we know was even created.

    Good work but it would be cooler if the judge was wearing the woman's aborted fetus as a hat and there would be blood all over the place but there would be like a bunch of tissues falling out of the sky since this is supposed to be a symbolic image.

    The painting is titled "One Nation Under God", and depicts Jesus holding the Constitution.
    Yet, the word "God" is never even mentioned in the Constitution.
    In fact, it was expressly avoided.
    It seems someone has the missed the entire fucking point of our Country's value system.

    ugg.

    At least it's well painted.

    extremely good painting, in the sense of how it's painted. But I totally disagree with the message.

    This doesn't seem like the best picture ever... all it did was remind me of the shallow minded Healthcare riots. The Cthulu one comes close to a turn-on though.

    I saw this on Wonkette a week or two ago. It's completely ridiculous and makes no logical sense, but it's still hilarious.

    the only thing that interest me from any religious flier is usually the art, they're mostly done by great realism illustrators.


    o and Im not religious, but I dont condone any anti-religion sentiment.... its the people who abuse it who are at fault, not the religion itself. People who go out of their way to express their opinion of how bad a simple belief is are just as worst as the zealots who use it to profit off of.

    in other words, why are you trying so hard rationalize this picture, as if anyone even expected it to make absolute sense? The guy in the middle is born from a virgin mother...

    EDIT: O GOD I JUST READ THE WEBSITE AND I cant blame anyone who bashes Religion, People who still strongly believe in that crap are ALL zealots anyway. The painting didnt have any effect on me.... Reading its meaning made me angry

    Good points. I just now noticed the perspective problems. And yeah, the composition is too symmetrical to be very interesting.
