Devil May Care by pseudo-manitou Devil May Care by pseudo-manitou
If the 'conservative moral right' are indeed the kind of people that go to heaven, I'd rather spend my eternity in hell. At least there will be less hatred and hypocrisy there...

...wow. That took almost seven years for someone to point out. That's embarrassing. Thanks for the spell check :)

Interesting thought. Though likely controversial.

I love how much you can do with so few colours. That happy go-lucky she-devil in the middle of the picture expresses tons with just four colours. Well done indeed.

I'm not so sure on the whole concept of hell myself. I don't know what your thoughts are, but I don't get why people who were bad once would *have* to be tortured. That just seems to be an extention of the vengeful nature of humans.

At least in my mind.

I find the sentiment expressed in this piece to be just as ignorant as the 'conservative moral right' it criticizes. While I admire the art, it leaves a nasty taste in my mouth.

I think you've mistaken 'ignorant' in my statement where 'overly simplified' only applies.

This is not something I take lightly. I have seriously researched the aspects of organized religion, bigotry, and where the two cross. I have found religion not at fault. The communities that twist religion accidentally when they incorporate it into their lives are at fault -- though not so that you can blame them.

But when certain communities reject all similar forms of their religion in favor of greed, bigotry, and hostility -- there is something seriously wrong. This is the 'religious right' I speak of. I point to the recent rejection by the Christian Coalition of their president-elect Rev. Joel Hunter, for his attempts to expand the Coalition's focus to aiding the poor -- as an example. Whether or not you feel the examples I know of represent ALL of the religious right is meaningless -- it is these examples I reject, not your examples.

If you wish to discuss the foundations of my opinion in far more detail, I am more than willing.

My sense of justice is enamored of the idea that we all experience the hell and heaven that we make ourselves believe in, both in life (which I can see to be at least partially true) and in death (which I can only hope is true).

come on now, is the right wing really so evil? wouldn't you agree, each side has it's badies? the left can be just as hypocritical.

moral issues should be left to the people, not the government - I mean, should you really trust them to run your life, or visa versa?
