Man, ever since the tornado, there hasn’t been much silliness in the Voices section. It’s become a chore to read, honestly. We got somebody thanking folks for helping clean up after the tornado, we got someone fretting about the economy, we got Rita Crowell complaining about sacrilegious tennis balls, we got a old fellow complaining about wait a minute what was that?
There was an article in The Joplin Globe this past month regarding a female artist who enjoyed tennis so much that she inserted tennis balls in a fanciful manner into her own paintings of classical art.
I would strongly urge her, and anyone else, not to insert anything to destroy or distort the integrity of any Christian religious painting.
To me, this is sacrilegious, irreverent and makes a mockery of God our creator, sustainer and redeemer.
You think that’s bad, you obviously haven’t seen what this lady does with ping pong balls.
