Satanic modern culture mocks the Blessed Virgin Mary
#1
Mexican-Americans this is especially directed at you since this is your holiest icon. Early in 2001 Santa Fe's Museum of International Folk Art featured a computerized photo collage of Our Lady of Gaudalupe,naked except for a bikini of roses, and held up by a bare-breasted angel. Exhibit curator Tey Marianna Nunn was puzzled by the protests telling the New York Times that "reimaging" Our Lady of Gaudalupe is quite common and the Virgin Mother has been portrayed as a Barbie doll, a karate kicker, and a tatooed lesbian.

This is not the only incident however since Robert Mapplethorpe twisted an altarlike image of the Virgin Mary into a bloody tie rack. T.S. Eliot called art an incarnation of a people's religion. If this is true who do you think inhabits the souls of these so-called "artists"?

I'm pretty sure other Catholic cultures have a pretty high esteem for the Blessed Virgin.  Our Lady of Guadalupe is patron of the Americas.  The instances of blasphemous art are in no way confined to a particular culture. 

Why are you making this thread, and why are you directing it "especially at Mexican Americans?"  Have they visited this museum more than others?  Mapplethorpe sounds like a Jewish or Northern European name, too.

eta used "refined" instead of "confined"

Go thy ways, old Jack;
die when thou wilt, if manhood, good manhood, be
not forgot upon the face of the earth, then am I a
shotten herring. There live not three good men
unhanged in England; and one of them is fat and
grows old: God help the while! a bad world, I say.
I would I were a weaver; I could sing psalms or any
thing. A plague of all cowards, I say still.

I was saying this in reference to Our Lady of Gaudalupe.

There is no hidden meaning or anything. The point is I am relating some instances against Our Lady that would be considered Satanic.

Our Lady of Guadalupe is the patroness of the Americas, not Mexico.  She's as much patron of the US as she is patron of South America.  She is also my baptismal patron.  She is also an apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary, who is a spiritual mother to all of us.  You don't insult the Virgin of Guadalupe without insulting Mary, queen of Heaven and Earth.

Which is why the thread is called, "Satanic modern culture mocks the Blessed Virgin Mary..." Now what is your opinion of this mocking instead of the thread itself?

Sounds like he's more concerned about you offending Mexican-Americans than these demoniacs offending the BVM.

No he's just against someone lumping in ALL Mexicans with demoniacs offending the BVM.
