I Find Your Lack of Faith Disturbing…No, Really

Darth GargoyleOne of the grotesques on DC’s Washington National Cathedral is Darth Vader. I’ll give you a moment to boggle before I continue.

In the 1980s the Cathedral sponsored a competition for children to design decorative sculpture for the facade. One of the winners was 13-year-old Christopher Rader, who submitted a drawing of “this futuristic representation of evil.” Darth can be found on the northwest tower.

I suppose we can all be deeply grateful that Beavis and Butthead weren’t around in the 80s.
