Stunning. It's like the church elders consider their heard to be just 'little people'. Their position as god's messengers or emissaries gives them such an ego high that even as their bodies decay they cut themselves off emotionally and sustain themselves on their own superiority complex, which of course has to be fed near constantly.

I thought it was your version of Pope Innocent X. Looks like political commentary. I like it

Looks great. Looks right. I wonder about the back of the Pope chair,no offense to the RCC. However there is an upside down cross where his holiness sits. hmmmmmm

Well my friend quick lesson in Christianity. As Jesus said on this same type Person depicted here! It's that So Called Christian that makes the group look bad and Jesus exposes that in Matthew 23.

The greatest among you must be a servant. "But those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted."

"What sorrow awaits you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees. Hypocrites! For you shut the door of the Kingdom of Heaven in people's faces. You won't go in yourselves, and you don't let others enter either." Matthew 23:11-15

Are you a christian?

Yes, but I can also identify with what you where stating. Some wear the title to put others down when Jesus clearly teaches us we are all God's children, to hate, misguide, or judge is not our duty, we are to share the Good news and his teachings, Not belittle or abuse. Its by faith we are freed not by works. That's God's grace a free gift his one and only Son. But there will Always be someone to try and corrupt that buy hurting someone new to it so they can see only darkness in it when what its truly about the light and that is what a Christian is.

I'm but a servant to say brother or sister, its about His Love for us not how to bash one another! He who has not sinned cast the first stone.

I Humbly say thank you!:bow: You can't blame some for their opinions because of the exposure they've had. But I can truly try to show what Christianity is supposed to be love not hate or even religion as in sets of rules.

I meant no offense man! Everyone's free to believe what they want :)Religion is fine, as long as it doesn't venture into fanaticism that is. Like most things of course :P I belive you shouldn't let anything hinder your ability to have an open mind. But hey! That's just me :) Thanks again dude

That's one grumpy bishop. Although I imagine I'd be the same if I had to wear that collar all day long!
