Art in Action

“What is beautiful to some people may appear to others to represent a problematic and pejorative system.”

This is, of course, just the first step. They’re testing the waters. I’d give it at least another five years before the “feminists” & their islamic brothers are ready to heap up the paintings of John William Waterhouse and burn them all, in their version of Savanarola’s bonfire of the vanities.

In the meantime, gaze upon the same artist’s Lady of Shalott, above, and marvel that such things were possible, once.

A Serious Question

I read with great interest, today, Vox Day’s post on “The anti-Churchian Alt-Right:

Please do read the whole thing.

I’m never quite sure what to make of VD. He insists that he’s a Christian, but he never seems to get very specific about it.

He doesn’t seem to accept the Pope, the Archbishop of Canterbury, or any other living authority on what it means to be a Christian.

I tried to ask him for some details, today, but his blog has lately become very commenter-unfriendly. So here are my questions:

In your opinion, Vox Day, to be a Christian, which of the following propositions must one believe:

(1) God is pure act without potency.

(2) Jesus of Nazareth died on the cross.

(3) God and Jesus of Nazareth are one in substance.
