Religion is a big issue. If you have any doubts about that, spend a few days in Riyadh or Kabul or even in Jerusalem. We in the West have lost our sense of awe and wonder in the face of infinity. Does that say something about how smart we are, or does it say more about the corruption of our society and the arrogance and deep stupidity of our people?

If you think this is a 'small' issue, then you're just not paying attention. That, and you're probably younger than 30 and have no idea of what's been stolen from you.
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...
