Ugh, like that horrible Phelps family and their Westboro baptist church.

Yeah, definitely a bad thing. I guess I was also talking about more "positive" uses of people's images as a strange thing. I'm probably just completely babbling, though - every time I've come back to try and formulate what I mean, it doesn't quite work. *grin* Perhaps what t3dy said about people as symbols - when people's faces and lives are used like that, re-interpreted for those who don't know them as symbols of something, not as themselves any more. It must be strange enough for the living, who get to respond to their use as such things. The dead don't even get that option. And when they're ordinary people, not people who have sought out the limelight (presidents, movie stars, etc.), I guess I wonder what they'd make of it all.

Heh, which I guess puts this clearly into personal hang-up zone and out of the "useful for Pagan discussion" arena. ;)
