Who? I was excited until I realized I was thinking of Tom Chick. Then it wasn't him, so this article sucked.

2003-05-02 09:52:08 AM  
I stopped reading the article after the words Christian fundamentalist. blech
2003-05-02 09:52:14 AM  
I find him quite interesting actually. Especially after someone told me that his site isn't Christian fundie satire.

Re:Jack Chick

It is my strict policy not give a rodent's posterior regarding all things related to Jack Chick, this policy applies even if the posteror in question is said to be flying.

Please forward to Bevet
2003-05-02 09:53:41 AM  
He's hilarious.
2003-05-02 09:53:43 AM  
He enjoys...steak dinners at Sizzler

All I could think of was the Joe Flaherty character in "Happy Gilmore"

My favorite Chick tract is where his charcter goes into a mosque and berates Islam to the worshippers there. Naturally, they see the error of their ways.

"Please forward to Bevet"

I don't think I've ever seen Bevets make a comment on the works of Jack Chick. Perhaps today is the day?
2003-05-02 09:54:37 AM  
Jeebus wasn't a fairy.
So, well, there ya go.

*didn't read much further
2003-05-02 09:54:45 AM  
Yup, lost all interest when they said he was a fundamentalist. I have no problem with Christians, hell, I am a Christian, but I hate those crazy ones who try to push their beliefs onto everyone else.
2003-05-02 09:55:08 AM  
What a maroon.

Heh. People in glass houses, etc.
2003-05-02 09:56:58 AM  
The article was written by Robert Ito

Wasn't he Quincy's assistant?
2003-05-02 09:57:04 AM  
And we're all clear that in an interview, you actually talk to a person and write down what they say back to you?

I was dissapointed. Like a sore tooth I wanted to hear this guy speak.
2003-05-02 09:58:46 AM  
Too early to say anything other than, "I don't like Jack Chick."
2003-05-02 09:59:10 AM  
"and the theft of his late wife's corpse"
2003-05-02 09:59:18 AM  
Well, he's sold me on the Eastern Star.

Anyone who promotes Baphomet can't be all that bad.
2003-05-02 09:59:57 AM  
It's more like an article, than an interview. There was no back and forth conversation.
2003-05-02 09:59:58 AM  
Chick, a fundamentalist Christian and president of a Rancho Cucamonga-based publishing company, wants his books to scare the hell out of you.

Don't terrorists want their activities to scare the hell out of you, too? I'm not saying Jack Chick is a terrorist, but his thinking seems a lot like theirs.
2003-05-02 10:00:49 AM  
And now, after Mutilats comment, mine is redundant.
2003-05-02 10:00:56 AM  
Yeah, it's safe to say this guy is:

*looks at towering's post*

Ahhh. I'm nostalgic for DOOM now!
2003-05-02 10:01:53 AM  
Now I have to go take a shower.
2003-05-02 10:02:41 AM  
These comics are some of the most annoying things around. Religious propaganda really burns my a$$.

And I found this article very hard to kill kittens to.
2003-05-02 10:05:58 AM  
This article makes me hate him a little less. Not much, but a little. He's a little nutty, sure, but hey, who here DOESN'T think the Catholic church is preparing for a bloody revolution and world domination from time to time?

...I've said too much.
2003-05-02 10:06:59 AM  
And to think I used to live in Rancho Cucamonga and had no idea it was home to the source of all hate in this world.
2003-05-02 10:08:51 AM  
Bass555: I didn't read that far, but anytime I see a Sizzler, I think of that guy (I watched that movie waaaaaay too many times).

"Hey Shooter, I thought we were going to be friends!"
2003-05-02 10:08:54 AM  
I'm praying for every one of your souls.
2003-05-02 10:09:34 AM  
This is a bio, where's the farking interview?
2003-05-02 10:09:46 AM  
Quote from article:

"Mr. Chick did tell me this morning that you had visited his home this weekend twice," she writes. "He understands that you are just doing your job, but I don't think you would like people showing up at your home on your day off, either."

And don't missionaries show up at your door to hand out Jack Chick tracts? Ironic.
2003-05-02 10:10:12 AM  
I'd hit it
2003-05-02 10:11:22 AM  
I sold mine to Milhouse for $5.00, but I appreciate the thought.
2003-05-02 10:11:30 AM  
My thoughtstream this morning:

"hmm.. lets see what's on Fark"
"Jack Chick...who?"
...writing tiny comic books about damnation...
...Jesus is not a weak fairy...
...Chick, a fundamentalist Christian...
"Done reading, opinion formed"

2003-05-02 10:13:22 AM  
Towering: That is one of the best episodes ever. Mostly because of the opening sequence.... "'In the Garden of Eden' by I. Ron Butterfly"

"Wait a minute, this sounds like rock and/or roll"
2003-05-02 10:14:37 AM  
LexiLuthor: I'm just happy someone got the reference!

"See you at the Red Lobster!"
2003-05-02 10:15:05 AM  
No interview, no sighting, just lots of handlers saying he's not available or speaking for him...

Methinks this guy is about as real as Carolyn Keene.
2003-05-02 10:15:32 AM  
" Witch burnings and ritual murders are captured in gleefully visceral detail, while the books' sexual overtonesas well as scantily clad biblical sirens like Eve, Delilah, and Semiramishave led critics to describe Carter's work as "spiritual porn." "

Hmmm.... spiritual porn. Are they saying this is a good thing, or a bad thing? I can't tell.

Ah Jack Chick, one of the most powerful weapons in the crusade against christian fundamentalists.
2003-05-02 10:18:07 AM  
Ghastly: That was farking hilarious!

/maybe I should be working right now....
2003-05-02 10:19:27 AM  
I went to see a lecture by Bishop Jack Spong at a Unitarian church, and came out to find a copy of This Was Your Life stuck under my windshield wiper....I was amused. I'd read several Chick tracts on line, but here was my very own hard copy of one! Still have it. I guess they figured that people attending a Spong seminar must need saving...
2003-05-02 10:20:26 AM  
Anyone else hate when religons try and look cool and 'hip shiat up' for the kids?
2003-05-02 10:20:47 AM  
Somewhere Robert Berry turns in his grave.
2003-05-02 10:21:55 AM  
Why doesnt everyone just post articles about ridiculously obscure, unknown people. What fun that'll be. Get that damn article off of there. It's taking up space for Boobies.
2003-05-02 10:21:58 AM  
Christ on a crutch, even the Christian think he's a flakazoid.
According to media watchdog group the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, which has kept a running file on Chick for three decades, "Everything's a big, frightening conspiracy with him," says Louis Giovino, the league's communications director. "They're done to scare."

The pope is an agent of Satan. Well, yes, of course. Nothing makes me want to whoop it up like a feeble old man.

Last year his 35-employee company made nearly $3 million in sales, mostly to churches, youth groups, and evangelically inclined individuals

This just proves that relgion is all about money.
2003-05-02 10:22:03 AM  
the weirdest thing...just a couple days ago everyone at work had a brochure put under their windshield wipers from Tony Alamo. We were all laughing at his picture, and the one of his dead wife, and how apparently God is going to destroy everyone very, very soon. Quite funny to read here that apparently Mr. Alamo had problems with the traditional forms of corpse-disposal...
2003-05-02 10:22:12 AM  
We all know that Jack Chick is going to share a room with Bevets in the fifth level of hell.

2003-05-02 10:22:17 AM  
Rillion - I went to see a lecture by Bishop Jack Spong

Jack Spong? Really? That's his name? Spong?

/off to legally change surname
2003-05-02 10:23:17 AM  
A few years ago I was a server at a restaurant that got really busy on the weekends. Every Sunday, there was a family that would come in after church, act like a bunch of asses, and leave Chick Tracts as a tip. After a few weeks, only the newbies would wait on them. Nobody else would touch the table, or even walk by it if they didn't have to.

They sucked.
2003-05-02 10:23:27 AM  
Incidentally, the article mentions Art Spiegelman, who gives a less-than-complimentary analysis of Chick....if you haven't yet had the chance to read Spiegelman's Maus and Maus II graphic novels, do it!
2003-05-02 10:24:05 AM  
We haven't had a good Chick tract in ages. Come on, people, lets get back to FARK basics.

And why haven't we seen a CAP alert in a good, long while? I need my CAP system to decide on which movies I should see, lest I accidentally view a movie in which a child is disrespectful or someone sneezes, both which are of the devil.
