Michael Ramirez -Stands With Christians

My admiration for the illustrative talents of Michael Ramirez is unlimited-and-he was kind enough to give me a brief critic of my illustrative art and words of encouragement after I wrote to him to congratulate him on his winning the Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning in 2008- (He also won the Pulitzer prize for editorial cartooning in 1994)
Well- he has designed a wonderful cartoon -coming down on bho's religious oppression-making Christian entities go against their Christian beliefs-h/t Gateway Pundit

His comment to criticism-

"If I don't get at least one phone call a day that says I'm a moron, I'm not doing my job," Ramirez says of his penchant for sparking controversy with his cartoons.

"An editorial cartoon is not just a funny picture," says Ramirez. "It is a powerful instrument of journalism, sometimes sharp and refined, its message cutting quickly to the point, and other times, blunt and overpowering, seizing the readers’ attention with its dark imagery."
