We're No Angels
...Or else my time in the world of media and purposeful manipulation images has given me the cynical assumption that everything in these types of frames is manipulated intentionally.
That this is precisely what blasphemy is doubtless bothers them not a bit.
Just to clarify: They're not sitting in front of the PAN logo; the "halo" logo is that of the tourism chamber of commerce.
Also, I saw on another blog the same image, but their play on it wasn't halos, but rather horns.
PS. I post as ourobouros on DailyKos
As for whether these were intended to be horns or halos, here's the basic question to ask: in a carefully staged photo-op-- so carefully staged that both men's heads are inside the logo-- is it likely that they intended to create the effect of a halo, as with the infamous George Bush photos, or did they intend to create horns?
To me, it's obvious: whoever staged the photo opintended to create halos, but they botched it and created what look like horns.
People who wonder if there is a God should look at this and see His subtle and humorous hand.
