First post on OCnet in a while, and thought I'd start off by sharing some icons by Fr. William Hart McNichols (RC).
For those who are wondering who these two are, the Greek inscription reads "St Francis" and "St Michael". They are shown as patrons and protectors of New York.
One is indeed an RC saint, being St Francis of Assisi. The other is the late Fr Mychal Judge, the chaplain to the NY Fire Dept, who was killed in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks. Fr Judge is a favorite subject of both McNichols and Lentz, because of the late priest's homosexual orientation. Both artists, who are homosexual themselves, have painted various "icons" which promote male and female homosexuality in a positive way, in direct violation of what their own church teaches.
