Ignore the painfully blatant propaganda for a minute. Look at the beautiful composition of this photo. You can see the strife in Satan's face as he tries to keep his grip on Jesus's perfect hand and buff arms. His palm is getting sweaty. Is it because of the competition, or the intensity of Jesus's unbroken eye-contact? Jesus himself is a work of art here. His beard and hair reads less like the Son of God, and more like Hank who sells bootleg fireworks and volunteers at the local demolition derby. He looks like how Mac would portray himself as Jesus in It's Always Sunny.

We may never know, but we do know that if our democracy is going to crumble, at least we got a Simpsons-colored buff Bernie with red nipples out of the deal.
