The Don: Shaped By War. by EarthHart The Don: Shaped By War. by EarthHart
One of the great war photographers, :worship: Don McCullin, at the Bishop's Palace, to unveil a new sculpture "The Weight of Our Sins" earthhart.deviantart.com/art/T… It's a sculpture by the late Josefina De Vasconcellos, and was gifted to the Bishop's Palace, by Prof G. Romaine Hervey in memory of the sculptor, his friend.

The sculpture shows eight children, and they represent the wrongs the children of the world still suffer.
Child & Sexual Abuse, Famine, Aids, Infanticide, War & Land Mines, Genocide, Child Labour, Homeless & Drug Abuse.
To coincide with this, there's an exhibition of Don's work, in the Conference Room of the Palace.

They say that the Nazarene gave His life for Man's sins.
He failed. Man has committed sins beyond belief & continues to do so.

Today, four children were blown up by an IED (Improvised Explosive Device) in Afghanistan.
And Christianity doesn't fair any better if not worse. Decades of sexual abuse of children by priests of a Church that should know better, but hid it from its followers. If a Church commits such abuse, where will it all end...
