According to this blog, the cult of Lenin is especially prominent among certain priestless Old Believers. Who knew?

God's a Mother Hen, y'all.



And then a bunch of icons from Fr. McNichols (at this website), but he has a newer website here.

"The Epiphany: Wisemen Bring Gifts to the Child

St. Francis and St. Aloysius bring people with AIDS to Our Lady of Guadalupe and El Santo Niño de Atocha"



"Thomas Anchanikal"



"The Passion of Matthew Shepherd

Dedicated To The Memory Of The
1,470 Gay and Lesbian Youth Who Commit Suicide In the U.S. Each Year
And To The Countless Others Who Are Injured Or Murdered"



"Holy Prophet Philip Berrigan of Jonah House"

No. McNichols' great mentor is Robert Lentz, a Franciscan. And the RCs I've come across who paint schlock are of a range of traditions within that church.

There are a very tiny number of RC and BC artists who not only paint good, canonical icons, but, more importantly, have the proper mindset. Indeed, one wonders when they reach a point where a line must be crossed: to remain RC/BC, or join the Orthodox Church. If one were to pursue iconography to the highest level, sooner or later, that line must be faced.

Not personally, but I know a traditional Anglican priest here whose iconographic forays led to him and his family converting. Sadly, he died a year or so ago.

Blech! Absolutely disgusting! The "icon" of Lenin is terrible, especially when a persecutor of Christ's Church is rendered as though he were the Saviour. Why didn't the "iconographer" even care to give Lenin a regular halo. The Rasputin icon is just in bad taste as well, because it is known that Rasputin was a man of bad morals. Hopefully people will stop making this stuff.

The first few I care nothing for but this one I rather like. While it obviously takes some cues from iconography, I don't think it does enough to be counted among the schlock.

With that last one, I'm of two minds. Is it really even trying to be an icon?
