    I feel kind of bad for her but man oh man, is that hideous. Spot's granddaughter could have done a better job.

    It upsets me that this act of piety by a parishioner should be so undervalued. It's where she worships, her offering should be just as precious to the community as the original she worked over. I say leave it be, there's far more artistic frescoes in the world than there are gifts from the heart like this.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Pride is one of the seven deadly sins and she's a prime example. She's desecrated her church.

    She was just trying to help fix that ugly thing.
    And she says she wasn't finished.

    Does it look like she's got the artistic ability to recreate that face? Really?

    The Lord moves in mysterious ways. I certainly didn't like what I've seen of the original, even before the water damage. Piety can go too far.

    Her version looks like a bad Picasso imitation.
