It makes a great political cartoon though.
If it was more clear that this is not being passed off as a real thing that happened, I'd agree. The line between satire and fake news is too blurry these days.
Especially with people like me running around who can't tell what's shopped and what isn't.  :eek:  :-[

But did the guy in the original icon have a suit on? Who was it?

You can see the distortions around the frame where the Russian flag has been put in, around the Rublev Trinity, around the suit, Putin's face and halo. It's all over.

You could devote a whole journal volume to the Madonna-Whore elements in play there.

Lost for now.
Who seriously thinks it is morally acceptable to wear pictures of the Virgin Mary like that?

1. Copy the image address
2. Click on the Mona Lisa icon
3. Paste the image in-between the image url.

to post a picture go to where you post a message then press icon with mona Lisa picture in the frame you will get brackets with img in them then find the picture you wanna post in google images right click it and choose open image in a new tab then copy URL and put between img brackets here's an example

All lesbian anachronisms aside, I really like the Book of Kells-esque “Not Made by Hands” in the center. Would totally get that as a stand alone icon.

Orthodox_Slav, the person who painted this has painted several "icons" which have a pro-homosexual message. This one shows Sts Perpetua and Felicity as lesbian lovers. Similarly, he has claimed Sts Sergius and Bacchus were homosexual, and painted them to reflect this.

It's frankly awful how modern society can't understand male friendships and twists everything to be sexual

I wonder why they used such a weird frame, though.
I've seen such type of Georgian Orthodox icons.

And that one makes it look like the Theotokos caused 9/11. "Ta-daaa!"

I guess the Crucifixion one is a bit more serviceable. Where are these located?
