    I can see the point in perhaps, removing a few things that are hanging and putting them away. Destroying them. Nonsense. And paintings that are hundreds of years old that are on wall? Just leave them alone. History is history and obliterating old things is foolish. They were Anti-Semetic. As are the Catholics who reject Vatican II today. Anyway, what should be reflected is the understanding that a minority of the Pharisees got together in the middle of the night, got their own followers together and railroaded Jesus but not the majority of the Pharisees or the Jews at the time. Hence, what for the whole thing in the middle of the night. And the fact being that the Romans were ultimately the culprits in the murder. You can't change the Bible. But the art from now on should reflect the affinity that God had in choosing the Jewish People in the first place, and that there were always good Jews no matter what!
