"Fighting the world wide web of wicked wrong doers."

Welcome. The aim of this site is simple - to rail against the slow, but steady chipping away of traditonal American values by a host of groups & individuals bent on destroying them.

What's Wrong With This Picture?

3 a.m.

Find anything wrong? Give up? Well something is very, very wrong. Indeed.

These 3 paintings are from a published series called "Storefronts: Fond memories of growing up in my minister dad's east Baltimore church." The artist is Lloyd Marcus. Lloyd Marcus happens to be a black man. But that is not what is wrong about the pictures.

Deltona, Fla., an Orlando suburb, decided to celebrate Black History Month by including an art exhibit. Marcus heads the Deltona Art and Historical Center. He was asked by Deltona city officials to submit some of his works for display. The city's public relations representative chose three of his works.

However, Deltona's acting city manager, Roland Blossom, told the Daytona Beach News-Journal he could not tolerate a mingling of church and state, even if the only evidence is a partial Bible lying on a table and a church sign, as in the "3 AM" painting.

"I saw the word 'Jesus' and the Holy Bible just sort of thrown in the painting," Blossom told the News-Journal. "What that forces anybody to do because this display is in a government building, they think this government is advocating in favor of one religion over another." "Just sort of thrown in" - the idiot is an art critic now. He's probably a white liberal who just knows what's best for blacks & religion.

"This is black history month," Marcus said. "I was raised in a storefront church in Baltimore, Maryland, and these are simply paintings from my childhood. I didn't paint them with the intention of selling religion. After all, they came to me. They [Deltona city officials] picked them on Friday and then they called me on Monday and said they had to take two of them down because of religious content. "I was really upset and angry because when you look at those paintings it's a black history month display and they have good positive black role model messages but because there's a bible on the nightstand or somebody wearing an I love Jesus baseball cap they can't be shown in a public building. That's crazy.'

"Maybe this will be a wake-up call that will get Christians to say 'We're mad as hell and we're not going go take it anymore.

"I am not angry at Deltona City Hall," he said. "The anti-Christianity movement speaks loudly and carries a big stick. However, this incident confirms that things have gotten out of hand. It is time for Christians, in a Godly way, to fight back."

To answer the question, there is absolutely nothing wrong with the pictures. There is, however, something very wrong in America when a jackass fool of a city manager can deem this to be an issue of separation of church & state. Something is very wrong in America when the thugs & Nazis of the ACLU can so intimidate towns with expensive lawsuits that the towns pre-empt the threat by going to ridiculous means to avoid it.

Deltona has not only done a disservice to itself in this idiocy of anti-Christian bias, but has harmed a black community that is proud of its religious reverence & the role model & pillar that the church provides in black communities. American society has also been damaged with another of the thousand cuts of anti-Christianity spreading across the country, spearheaded by the Godless & malicious ACLU - in effect, the Anti-Christianity Liberties Union.

Good post. Everywhere we look, Christianity is being degraded and attacked, and Islam is being appeased. It makes me want to just leave this world and slam the door behind me.

I find it funny that most anti Christians think "separation of church and state" is in the constitution. People need to ask them selfs: is this painting in a black history celebration equal to congress establishing a national religion? If not then it is more than constitutional

I am sorry that these fine drawings are not being displayed. But please do not blame (or for that matter call them Nazis - very un-Christian like) the ACLU. Blame the courts. And if you say it is the cost of the defending the lawsuits - then why doesn't the so-called Christain right use their money in fighting these lawsuits instead of supporting the unbelievably un-Christian Republican party.

Uh, uh, uh...it is very un-Chrisitan like to call the Republican party unbelievably un-Chrisitan. And Christian groups do put up money to fight the ahem...Nazis...cough...I mean ACLU.
