Could someone post the link to this photo, or PM me?  I didn't catch it.  Thanks.

An icon of First Lady Laura would be more tasteful :)

That's hilarious Gregory. I wonder if a certain episcopalian church wouldn't put that up among their "Dancing saints".

Sorry, guys. I have to break the news to you. The icon was given to George W.Bush by a SSPX Traditionalist from St.Mary's Kansas.

What's up with the SSPX giving icons to Protestants?  Statues are so much more provocative.  :)
The whole forum is Mor. We're emanations of his godlike mind.

Actually, Mor's face shineth like the Sun.

That is HILARIOUS Gregory!!! ;D  But if you thought him worthy of an icon, shouldn't you at least have given him a look of peace instead of making him look constipated?  In spite of the halo, it isn't a very flattering image.  

But seriously, I wonder how the president (who is a Protestant, and has a large Evangelical/iconoclast constituency) felt about receiving an icon of St. Mary.  He was probably very cordial, but I would imagine that like any Evangelical, he would be a little turned off.

BTW, who are the SSPX?  Sounds like a Formula 1 racing team, or the Schutzstaffel Post Exchange! ;)
