No matter how you slice it, a golden statue of a former president was a bad idea, but it did inspire me to review several scriptures related to idol worship. I guess any Bible study is good Bible study, and I enjoyed Photoshopping the stature into this “Sunday School” art scene.

One comment I read said, “This is an alternative National Anthem by Francis Scott Out-of-Key.”
