@mike Oops. My apologies. I guess if you follow NuclearAnthro on twitter you'll be able to see them.
@mike The thread is about stained glass windows in a chapel on a USA military base, which uses official imagery of units responsible for use of nuclear weapons in the event of nuclear war - nuclear-armed bombers, missles, etc.
Although it doesn't directly feature Jesus, it is otherwise a real-life example of an artistic mix of war imagery and christian religion, which differs from John's art in that it is serious *advocacy*, whereas John's is meant as criticism.
A Mastodon instance for sauropod appreciators everywhere. Our code of conduct is don't be a jerk.
