Thanks, Joan, for that positive image of a flourishing, egalitarian, peaceful world, as an antidote to the image of a Dominator Culture avatar sacrificing himself to himself to allow himself to change a rule he made himself (as James Huber points out in his tract parody "Dead to Rights").

When I see a crucifix, I think of pain and suffering for no good reason, of sacrifice that need not be, of authority over sheep following a deluded shepherd, of dominion over everything that swims, crawls, flies and over all elements of the Earth. I feel disgust, revulsion, hate, murdered, slaughter of the innocent. 

In my mind, an image that uplifts me is of an Earth full of diversity, of life that sustains, renews and refreshes itself, a place where problems can be solved with reason and conflicts overcome based on justice and where peace prevails.

I'd considered them, but like the bloody stuffed ones better. :P
