At a Boise art show/campaign fundraiser featuring art about herself on Friday, Oct. 26, Democrat candidate for governor Paulette Jordan featured a highly offensive painting depicting herself as the Virgin Mary, the Mother of Jesus.
In the painting, Jordan takes the place of Mary as Mary originally appeared in the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Catholics believe Mary appeared in a vision to St. Juan Diego in Mexico in 1531.
Here is the offensive painting:
And here is a screenshot of a Facebook Live video the Jordan campaign posted that shows Jordan at the campaign event with the offensive painting:
It’s not just that this painting points to Jordan’s narcissism — that she is OK with being depicted as the Mother of Jesus — it’s also that she is so insensitive to the offense this painting causes to Catholics and other people of faith.
Here are more screenshots of the exhibits at Jordan’s art show/fundraiser:
