The Tattoo and the Graffiti

Yesterday I blogged on the English Defence League’s use of an image of graffiti scrawled on the side of an Indian restaurant in a video designed to rally the faithful against Islamic extremists. I noted that the image had been taken from Paul Ray’s blog, and added that:

It is a quite remarkable co-incidence that Ray just happened to chance upon a piece of anonymous graffiti  that reflects his particular religious and political perspective and symbolism, but there it is.

Even more remarkably, however, I now see that the cross also looks very much like a tattoo Ray has on his arm. The properties in the original of the left-hand picture say that it was taken in January 2007, which predates his discovery of the graffiti.

Paul Ray Cross Tattoo Coincidence

Astonishing. Must be divine providence.
