Oh my. I have been heartbroken by the events in Newtown, but this is...wow.

"twas' 11 days before Christmas, around 9:38
when 20 beautiful children stormed through heaven's gate..."

More at the link. Much more.

"Stormed through?" Are they trying to occupy the place?

Whose arm is on Jesus' left elbow? The kid to His left has both hands in his lap. Is it the hand of the girl just above his elbow like she's hugging His arm?

Also, does Jesus look like the young verson of the "Most Interesting Man in the World"?

"I don't always drink wine, but when I do, I prefer My own blood."

[evil]Jesus' hand on the kid reminds me of that scene from Airplane!. "Joey, you like movies about gladiators?"

I often wonder with all the Jesus glurge going around with the school shooting, how do they reconcile the fact that at least one of the kids was Jewish?

I honestly don't think I can read this.

Usually, I can laugh at bad "A Visit from St. Nicholas" pastiche. I can't laugh at this. People died.

Is that pic from the same guy who did the painting of Jesus presenting the constitution to the founding fathers & the one of Obama trampling the constitution?

Read This!

I found the following article about the gluge's author, Cameo Smith:

I haven't had any luck tracking down the artist behind the painting. Still looking, though.

You're thinking of Jon McNaughton. That painting in the OP doesn't look like McNaughton's style to me. McNaughton's paintings strongly evoke Soviet era socialist realism to me, which I don't see at all in the OP. The OP painting strikes me as much more traditional North American evangelical art. Also, he's not claiming credit on his website.

Yea, that's the thing that really bugs me about this glurge.

God stages a killing because he needs some extra kids? I always thought that dude was a bit odd but I didn't know he'd resort to this.
