One Nation Under God is a painting by Jon McNaughton.
Random first thoughts as I perused the painting with the mis-aligned magnifying glass:
1) Huh. So THIS is what would happen if Thomas Kinkade and Mel Gibson mated to produce viable offspring.
2) The artist appears to have a problem with Gibbons v. Ogden (presumably for defining federal Congressional law as supreme over state law), and yet no problems with glorifying Alexander Hamilton. Or James Madison. Or John Jay. OKAY!
3) He also presumably has a problem with judicial review (Marbury v. Madison) but no problem with Alexander Hamilton. EXCELLENT.
4) "Seperationist." Nice. Let's leave conlaw out of art, shall we?
