Looking to 2020, if you're a millennial who voted for Hillary Clinton on Nov. 8, 2016, don't give up hope that our country will have a bright, democratic future.
Jesus says, "Let Them Eat Cake" (2016) by David Haywood.
The overall theme of "Let Them Eat Cake" is the generous love of Jesus. His crown of thorns is surrounded by a halo, and one hand is outstretched offering the viewer to share a generous bite from the same-sex couple's wedding cake. Using symbolic colors of Gay Pride (e.g. red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple), Haywood frames the occasion of a gay wedding as a time of celebration for all but especially for leading Christians to remember that “God is love" (Matthew1 John 4:16). David Haywood was inspired to create this work from 2016 news stories of bakers who refused to make cakes for same-sex weddings for religious reasons.
