Jesus has been crucified once and for all. But do we continue in America (and the world at large) to crown Him again and again with the thorns of our indifference to acknowledge HIM over all of HIS creation? Yes, the Christ the Redeemer’s face is substituted for the Statue of Liberty’s because He’s (Jesus) given us liberty from the letter of the law (think Old Testament here). If you’re a follower of Christ you don’t have to be burdened with the man made rules of life. When you’re walking the talk (of Christ), you’re already surpassed the “righteousness” of the world’s walk.
Jesus’ silence during His crucifixion is here represented by the “death head” moth image depicted in the “Silence of the Lambs” movie poster.
