In light of the recent flurry of devastating decisions from the Catholic-majority Supreme Court of the United States, we have decided to create a series of art emphasizing the imposition of Christianity on America's secularism.
The Greek goddesses Athena and Artemis are both legendary for their fearsome capabilities in war but are also known for their fiercely defended chastity. To join Artemis's all-female Hunt, maidens must swear loyalty to the goddess, vow to reject love and remain lifetime virgins. Although Artemis may expect her huntresses never to know a man, all that time in female company has made her extremely knowledgeable in the ways of women. She decided to bring Athena some of the wisdom she's gained about the fairer sex.
Who knew that the whole time these Iranian mullahs were constraining women's lives, they were actually projecting their desire for restraints and bondage onto everyone else!
“Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired.”

India has a fraught relationship with the religions that came as colonizing forces alongside its invasion by imperialist powers. The Abrahamic religions of Christianity and Islam have left an indelible mark on the subcontinent, which is still felt today. Unfortunately, this painful historical legacy has influenced the supporters of Hindu nationalism to engage in contemporary persecution of Indian Christians and Muslims in an ill-guided attempt to right a historical grievance. Perhaps if they could see how the Prophet Muhammad recognizes Lord Krishna's legitimacy as a true deity of India and how much he enjoys willingly submitting to him, they wouldn't feel the need to abuse religious minorities among their community as an expression of their insecurity and inferiority complex.
Two of the world's most famous goddesses, the Greek deity Aphrodite is the famed female patron of sexuality and beauty. At the same time, Hera is the Queen of the Gods and goddess of marriage, women, and childbirth. While Aphrodite's attractiveness is renowned worldwide, Hera is known for her motherliness but also her legendarily vengeful and vindictive nature. These two goddesses also have a competitive past; in the story of the "Judgement of Paris," they are pitted against each other in a beauty contest alongside the Goddess Athena. Aphrodite wins by briding Prince Paris with the most beautiful woman in the world, Helen of Troy. This sets the stage for the Trojan War after Paris goes to claim his prize, with Goddess Athena even spitefully joining the Greeks to fight against Paris's Trojans after he snubbed her. However, the goddesses have set aside their differences, basking in the mutual appreciation of each other's beauty and charm instead of fighting for the approval of a petty mortal man.
