Can men lose the image of God?

In the entry, “Feral blacks and the image of God,” two respected commenters reprimand me for my remark that certain human beings are so degraded that they “have lost the divine image entirely.” After my reply, in which I repeat my point while admitting I may be wrong, a third commenter explains the subtle teaching of the Church Fathers as to the meaning of the Genesis verse, “And God said, I will make man in my image, after my likeness,” which may help resolve the issue.
