How disheartening and sad that Thomas Kinkade, the “Warrior of Light,” has left us in this holy season. He died yesterday at his home in California, of “natural causes,” at the age of 54.
If you don’t thrill to Mr. Kinkade’s magnificent landscapes of bridges, cottages, streams, and profusely blooming gardens, all glowing in light from sun, moon, or lamp, you are probably a member of the sniveling “art establishment.” Mr. Kinkade eschewed the nihilism, obscenity, and utter nonsense of modern “art” in favor of truth and beauty. "With whatever talent and resources I have, I'm trying to bring light to penetrate the darkness many people feel,” he said.
While politicians murder, rob, lie, and exploit, while bureaucrats and the State’s other lackeys leech off and persecute us, this gentle artist, this devout servant of the Almighty, will celebrate Easter this year in the immediate presence of his Savior.
“The righteous perish, and no one takes it to heart; the devout are taken away, and no one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil.” Is. 57:1
