Fine Art

This piece of fine art *straight face now* that demonstrated how Jesus wrote the Constitution, Founded the United States of America, and built Three Mile Island giving him that alluring glow, was going around the web yesterday. The best part about it is if you go to the site and move the mouse over it, there is a alt text on the right for each person in the painting. For example, put your mouse on the professor (he’s the one standing next to satan clutching the copy of Origin of Species) and you learn that he represents the liberal control of education.

Well, it didn’t take long for the internet to jump on this and improve it. Sweet, sweet intertubes, how I do love you.

Update:

Sweet Cthulhu!

  1. I saved the hi-res version right away for later use (it didn’t take me long to find the link in the source code). I absolutely love that shit, it’s even worse than Jehovah’s Witness art. If you look at his gallery you can see he’s basically a Thomas Kinkade with a touch of Jeebus.

    There’s a version with some Founding Fathers quotes here: http://scuttle.mirror.waffleimages.com/data/files/28/28e0a78f04acd8b20a01f3ef9ba820f7ab5097eb.jpg

  2. Just a side note. You’ll have to enable Javascript or it won’t work (took me about 5 minutes of looking for the differences before I figured that out!). If you’re using Firefox with the No-script add-on this could trip you up.

  3. Not only did the painter not read Darwin’s “Origin of the Species,” he also did not read Frederick Douglass, “a famous abolitionist and fighter for women’s suffrage.” In his essay The Christianity of This Land, Douglass wrote,

    “I can see no reason, but the most deceitful one, for calling the religion of this land Christianity. I look upon it as the climax of all misnomers, the boldest of all frauds, and the grossest of all libels… I am filled with unutterable loathing when I contemplate the religious pomp and show, together with the horrible inconsistencies, which every where surround me.”

  4. Sure are a lot of white people in that pic. Odd that Lincoln’s “Emancipation Proclamation” didn’t get a mention, either.

    Excellent parody work all around!

  5. Okay – you know it’s bad when a Cthulhu image acts like an unicorn chaser… Seriously – that was a relief to look at!

    I am serious nauseated looking at this Jesus Holy Crap…

  6. Now why does Dick Cheney(Or is it Fred Dalton Thompson)act like he has something in his ear??
    Also,why aren’t there any Asians;Blacks or Hispanics in the pitcure??
