Well, it's like Ayn Rand said," Hatred of the good for BEING good is the hallmark of the 20th (and now 21st) century." There is a spirit loosed upon the world that insists on destroying ANYTHING that reflects goodness, order, beauty, godliness. "resist it, firm in your faith".

There is also just plain hatred and blame and vengeful hearts by those that believe they are victims of liberty. They want to be coddled by a mama government.

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...
