Painted Brick

Minus the fact that these homes are gorgeous (with or without the painted brick), I would like to start the discussion - To paint or not to paint brick?
I feel like the answer was once not to paint brick, but now I feel like it is such an accepted statement on a home. . .
Please take a look at these images and give me your thoughts.
(I'm considering painting our brick home).
