Well which is it pastor, Marilyn or Grace?
OK, let's see a stutue of Grace then.

Members of a Connecticut Christian congregation were taken aback last week when an enormous statue of Marilyn Monroe appeared steps from their doors, giving the historic church an unobstructed view of the leading lady’s backside.

The 26-foot “Forever Marilyn” statue by artist Seward Johnson captures the Hollywood actress in an iconic scene from the movie “The Seven Year Itch” in which a gust from a subway grate sends her white skirt billowing up. The statue’s back faces the First Congregational Church of Stamford.

The 30,000-pound sculpture is part of a summer arts series in downtown Stamford that showcases Johnson’s work in public places. It was installed in a Latham Park, a city-owned green space, last Monday ― which is when the church’s senior minister, the Rev. Todd Yonkman, first heard of it.

“It makes me uncomfortable,” Yonkman told HuffPost in an email. “The question for each one of us is, What will you do with your discomfort? I am choosing grace.”

If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
