Keith Haring – Brooklyn Museum

Was just having a wee read at this blog… if I were to write an internal assessment, I might very well choose something like this… obviously the possibilities are endless but you could write an excellent answer on whether religion has been (is?) good or bad for the world (whether it is a monster)?

If you were really keen to grapple with the picture, rather than just go your own way, I would be tempted to place Karl Barth’s thoughts on what he calls ‘Lordless Powers’ in Church Dogmatics IV against the sentiments that lie behind JFK’s often quoted:

Our problems are man-made, therefore they may be solved by man. And man can be as big as he wants. No problem of human destiny is beyond human beings.
