      I'm not sure if "God creatures is the right groop for this picture, but you should gibe it to groups like "catholizism" or "religion"

      I was doing random searches on Flickr and was curious as to what images people would have if I searched for "Jesus Christ". Your image stood out as simply the most striking image I could find. I love the fact that you recognized the cross in the pole and simply added the crucified Christ to it. From what I can tell, you did so without much thought about symbolism or any intent to offend. While the audience seems to be placing a wide number of interpretations that are thought-provoking and profound. Love it or hate it, the image is striking. As one of the posts pointed out, this can serve as a reminder that God and Jesus are everywhere you look, but you have to look. I love it. Very well done.

      epayne73 - i definitely wasn't trying to offend anyone. it is interesting that there are passionate christians who really like this image, and passionate christians who think it is extremely blasphemous.

      i'm just happy that most people seem to like it, and have come up with their own interpretations of what it means to them.

      found using the random link on the FlickrWave extension.

      This is an idea I actually haven't seen before; it just seems more obvious than it is?

      Hmm.... thinking thoughts of 'death by electrocution' and coming up with a visualization of an electric chair!
      I love it!

      THE DOORS (Jim Morrison, Robbie Krieger, Ray Manzarek & John Densmore) used a similar picture in the inside artwork of their 1971 album LA WOMAN.

      Yo soy católico y no creo que sea una pintura ofensiva, la Iglesia Católica tiene muchos actos de que avergonzarse. La obra me parece genial. Le felicito, creo que usted tiene una gran imaginación. Saludos
