The Malicious Mangling of the Virgin Mary

Amazing. I lost my first apartment for inviting African American children over for a Christmas party. We were kicked out 2 days before Christmas. I spent most of my early ministry in inner City work with many many African Americans working together with me. I worked my way through College as the only white spot on the cleaning crew for an Elementary school. Now I am a racist and filled with hatred because I deeply oppose a man who voted 3 times to allow babies to die after a failed abortion. This same man wants me to PAY FOR this.
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...
