RELIGIOUS ART | NEWS OF WEEK

ALPHA OMEGA ARTS
By Gregory Disney-Britton
We've read the bill. We've listened to the rhetoric, and the clear loser in this week's debate over Indiana's "religious freedom" bill, is Christian unity. We however found solace in Hugo Simberg’s "The Wounded Angel." Painted in 1903, the artist never explained the meaning but left that up to the individual viewer. In it today, we see the two poles in a Christian-centered debate over religious freedom: one is sullen, and the other is angry. Both, however, march forward, upholding the symbol of their faith, and that makes "The Wounded Angel" (above) our NEWS OF WEEK.
