The Malicious Mangling of the Virgin Mary

It's a good question to ponder Elizabeth. To me it takes more "faith" to believe that the matter from which the "big bang" came from has no explaination as to it's origins. Then you have the "faith" that the big bang came about thru chance breaking all the odds known to man or Deity. The third nail in that lack of Creator coffin is the "faith" that life came about thru chance let alone evolved to where it is now.
A Christian can be crushed gazing at the picture of Mary standing at the foot of the cross, watching her beloved son suffocate and die. But in that vision, she stands there for hours, patiently enduring her suffering. For two millennia, she has been a role model for Christians, a woman who practiced obedience in the most difficult of human circumstances, with fervent hope for what this sacrifice will offer all mankind as it struggles with sin.

This is why it seems so hard to reflect that vision of patience when black-hearted "artists" practice character assassination on the Blessed Virgin...
