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?
An ACROD parish in Virginia.

Here's one better:

St. George slaying the Russian eagle.
Of greater offense is the fact the Holy Spirit has been enveloped by the Ukrainian Tryzub. Make of that what you will.

Supposedly a KP cathedral. I'm having to take the word on that thirdhand, though.

If you're a real Christian, you hate idols and The Simpsons!

We have descended from the realm of shlock into the veritable abyss of madness, with the mild exception of Agabus’s example posted above.  But seriously, icons of Ned Flanders and Spiderman et cie are quite beyond the pale.  At least the Warhammer icon does not directly follow Orthodox iconographic approaches; it is more akin to other SF iconography like the images of the false “deity” Gehn in Riven.

I really don't know what to say to all of this. I really tired to come up with something. I did, but I just can't. :)

I’ve seen that, and even worse icons of Sts. Sergius and Bacchus.  Sts. Cosmas and Damian also have been targeted for homosexual “reinterpretation.”
