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.  :)

Mor no longer posts on OCNet.  He follows threads, posts his responses daily, occasionally starts threads, and responds to private messages when and as he wants.  But he really isn't around anymore.

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! ;)

Worship is theology, so a church which brings Evangelical and Charismatic "praise & worship" into its corporate life is no longer Orthodox.  It is, by definition, heterodox.  Those "Orthodox" leaders who make theological arguments for the incorporation of heteropraxis into the life of the Church are heretics.
