We live in a time in which decent and otherwise sensible people are surrendering too easily to the hectoring of morons or extremists.

Re: Hagia Sophia

The mosaics are considered to be some of the finest examples of Byzantine art in the world.  I actually used some of them as inspiration and springboards for a eries of artworks I did several years ago.  If interested in this style, check out the works in the cathedral in Ravenna, Italy, particularly the work entitled 'Justinian and his Attendants'.
