Marty’s photo of the day #3845: As has become a tradition, each year around Christmas, I dig into my photos of the great old churches I photographed in Europe. That way Christians can enjoy them for their religious significance, creative people can enjoy them for their artistic beauty, and atheists can enjoy them for the irony by pointing out, “In the Bible, doesn’t Jesus encourage people to sell all their possessions, give the money to the poor, and follow him?”

Enjoy the photo in whatever way it works for you. This church is located in Florence, Italy.
