By the way, it’s moment like this that I am really grateful for St. John Damascene’s defense of images in the Church that steered Christianity away from iconoclasm. Protestants who fret about religious statues forget that their iconoclasm would, if taken to its logical end, have smashed all their bowling trophies, ripped up their family photo albums, and destroyed every butter, snow, and ice sculpture, not to mention taking a sledgehammer to the Pieta and the David.
