No, its about how Jewish lawyers who "hate Jesus" have all the money and run Satan's world. Look at the careful but extensive use of Jewish visual stereotypes. Typical Jack Chick anti-Semitism.

The funniest thing about the Jack Chick form of Christianity is that, after the life our protagonist led, if he had TRULY repented and taken Jesus into his heart five seconds before the plane hit the mountain, he would go directly to heaven.

Same thing with serial child murderers. You can kidnap, rape, torture, and kill 100 toddlers, but the fundie Xtian lot says that after doing all that, as long as you are "born again" (and get this -  since we're "all sinners", you don't even have to apologize for what you did before, you just have to truly "repent" of your prior sins!  Even that BS Alcoholics Anonymous stuff talks about "making amends", but not in Jack Chick's world), you get to go to heaven with glowy, faceless Jebus.

But Ghandi and Mother Teresa are in Hell.

Sorry, Jack.  If that's how the supernatural system works, I want no part of it.  It's repugnant.

After converting to Christianity, Chick wanted to evangelize others, but was too shy to talk to people directly about religion.[8] Chick heard from missionary Bob Hammond, who had broadcast in Asia on the Voice of America, that the Communist Party of China had gained significant influence among ordinary Chinese in the 1950s through the distribution of small comic books.

So ol Jack's copying what worked for the Communists in China.

Jack's a got damn Jesus Commie.

He's also according to wiki 89 years old, so we're getting a valuable look into the mind of a senile bigot's brain.

As much as I don't subscribe to the "Born Again" theology, it is one part of their doctrine I can get behind. Sorta. Repentance of any type during life, while noble if sincere, is by nature incomplete. I believe that when it happens, truly, is after death.

Revelation upon death is the only method that I can rationalize a kind and loving deity against the the problem of evil (via free will). What I mean is, when one dies you suddenly get to see how it all works. At which point there can only really be one of two outcomes; repentance and acceptance or willful oblivion (I do not believe that there is a hell, aka gods eternal torture palace). Either life is a learning experience for what comes next, or your rejection of the whole is so strong that you quietly obliterate yourself.

I'd like to see one where someone is a good person, making all the morally right decisions, but doesn't believe in JC and gets thrown into hell next to Hitler.

The fact that these folks, in addition to the anti-Semitic rubbish, have to use examples of terrible people suggests to me that their own beliefs would be dismissed if they present an honest view of their beliefs. Only by convincing people that those who don't accept Jesus are the terrible human beings who deserve to be thrown into the lake of fire can any of their sheep be tricked into believing this garbage.

mutterfark: mikaloyd: Is this the thread where we get butthurt over a comic book?

No this the thread where we mock a caricature of Christian evangelism. I think the butthurt threads are on the politics tab.:b



"Christian evangalism" itself is a mock-worthy caricature of christianity. It's pre-caricatured.

As an atheist I can't deny that Jesus' "teachings" have a whole lot of good in them (and a few loose ends which remind you that it's a work of man from a more barbarous time), and we'd be better people if more of us could commit ourselves to living many of those basic teachings. You know like humility, loving one another, forgiving one another, caring for the sick and poor, being less judgmental, not worshiping the "money changers" and not shoving our own beliefs down others' throats...

The problem is that the modern American evangelical movement isn't christian, it's all but explicitly satanic and certainly blasphemous.

The movement takes each of those teachings of Jesus and inverts them, as surely as any satanist inverts the cross. More so even, since the cross is just a symbol and those teachings are the substance. That's what happens when you mix politics and religion instead of keeping them separate - they corrupt each other. So now we have satanic "christians" who insist that America is a "christian nation", who have stood for decades opposed to minorities and have nothing to do with them from being allowed to get married, who are "tough on crime", who constantly fight tooth and nail to pull the rug out from under social safety nets which care for those who need healthcare and the poor, who are always trying to force their morality on others who might not share it through legislation, who support corrupt/flawed republican financial policies which benefit the wealthy at the expense of everyone else, and who just can't help but pray on the "streetcorners" every damn chance they get.

Some christians don't think we should mock the evangelical/charismatic movement christianity? They should stop being such a shiatty caricature, stop farking our country up and start having just a modicum of understanding that there are other people in the world who don't and won't ever share evangelical christian beliefs and they have every right to live their lives without christian political cronies trying to fark with them legislatively at just to pander for the right-wing vote. In other words: START ACTUALLY BEING CHRISTIAN. Then there won't be anything to mock.

Yeah, there's a decent amount of chicktrax that condemn very decent people to hell.

Seriously, that cartoon was such BS in so many ways, like mentioned above, and another...

This could be read as an old, bitter Jack Chick's whining about how kids won't read his comics except to laugh at them. Clearly the key to success as a cartoonist is who you know (among the Elders of Zion), not what you know.

I've always read those things for shiats and giggles, when I've found them sitting around.  Artwork and generally bizarre, sardonic humor reminds me of R. Crumb, et al in the good old days of "counterculture comics."

Pretty sure the man on the left is a Stephan Colbert fan, a category I wouldn't guess Jack Chick to be included in.

Jack Chick has illustrated himself before.  I'd say it's a fairly close resemblance.  85% match, to be sure.

Religion aside, Jack Chick clearly doesn't understand how law firms operate. Unless Aunt Rebecca is a lawyer, she can't "own" a law firm.  It's unethical for a lawyer to split his/her earnings with a non-lawyer.  And since there's no mention of Sydney going to law school or passing the bar, the same goes for him as well.

FloridaWombat: SheltemDragon: dahmers love zombie: The funniest thing about the Jack Chick form of Christianity is that, after the life our protagonist led, if he had TRULY repented and taken Jesus into his heart five seconds before the plane hit the mountain, he would go directly to heaven.

Same thing with serial child murderers. You can kidnap, rape, torture, and kill 100 toddlers, but the fundie Xtian lot says that after doing all that, as long as you are "born again" (and get this -  since we're "all sinners", you don't even have to apologize for what you did before, you just have to truly "repent" of your prior sins!  Even that BS Alcoholics Anonymous stuff talks about "making amends", but not in Jack Chick's world), you get to go to heaven with glowy, faceless Jebus.

But Ghandi and Mother Teresa are in Hell.

Sorry, Jack.  If that's how the supernatural system works, I want no part of it.  It's repugnant.

As much as I don't subscribe to the "Born Again" theology, it is one part of their doctrine I can get behind. Sorta. Repentance of any type during life, while noble if sincere, is by nature incomplete. I believe that when it happens, truly, is after death.

Revelation upon death is the only method that I can rationalize a kind and loving deity against the the problem of evil (via free will). What I mean is, when one dies you suddenly get to see how it all works. At which point there can only really be one of two outcomes; repentance and acceptance or willful oblivion (I do not believe that there is a hell, aka gods eternal torture palace). Either life is a learning experience for what comes next, or your rejection of the whole is so strong that you quietly obliterate yourself.

/ This is no way justifies sin during life
// I likely do not have it even remotely right, but we all try.
/// Critiques and debates welcome, but if your approaching it from absolute atheism we won't get anywhere so why bother.

So they've come back around full circle to Catholic absolution throug ...


In a more absolutist way, kinda. To be fair, I am operating under a few basic assumptions.
1) There is a loving god ( But we likely unable to understand exactly what that means as we are physiologically defined beings ) and a afterlife (the nature of which is either ascension or gnostic reincorporation with god. I'm still out on this one)
2) The universe operates in largely a Deistic manner (God set up a natural law governed universe and then does not ever directly interfere with its operation.)
3) This the goal of this thing is to produce the only thing that a absolute deity cannot directly produce on its own. Free Willed companionship / experience / successors.
4) That a loving god would not install an eternally punitive system, and that awareness revelation would make the regret / rejection choice instantaneous.

I feel like I should also add that I firmly believe that forgiveness and justice are two completely different concepts and yet connected on some level, at least in a corporal sense. After all, there cannot be any forgiveness without regret and the truly regretful will want to atone / pay for their harmful actions. External forgiveness is meaningless without internal forgiveness and internal forgiveness cannot happen without regret.This is where I diverge hard from Catholic Absolution. You have to make peace with what you've done, no amount of external blessing can help you.

Note- Not feeling bad about performing a harmful action once your aware it harmful is *not* internal forgiveness/ It's sociopathic.

Aquapope: FloridaWombat: /// Critiques and debates welcome, but if your approaching it from absolute atheism we won't get anywhere so why bother.

Rationalism need not apply.


To a certain extent? Yes.

There isn't any happy medium between deistic belief and absolute atheism. And no externally reproducible way to prove either to the satisfaction of the other.

So why waste energy on the argument.

These evangelical people need to be shunned. Publicly. Everywhere.

In the restaurants, the fast food joints, the tire shops, the stationery stores.

Everywhere.

No rudeness required, just quietly but adamantly shunned.

Or they are going to pull us all down to Hell with them.

In the same way we love Uncle Joe, your distant relative who probably has undiagnosed Aspergers who can't stop touching himself and singing Cher songs at family reunions.


You know, most of us with undiagnosed Asperger's\autism can at least manage not to touch ourselves in public. I wasn't diagnosed until eighteen and I was still capable of such basic things as that.

The guy who wrote it drew the drawing.  He had an old site with the article, but seems to have lost much moving stuff to his new site.

Haven't followed link yet as stuck on subway& won't be above ground for a bit. BUT I don't mean parody like 'making fun' but parody like 'we're gonna take this evil shiat to the extreme and see if anybody even notices'. Sorta 'onion does chick' and no one can tell the difference. Like that Alice Donut song about a guy pimping his daughter and finding salvation via a chick track. "I'm in the soup now!"

Sorry, I think it's the underground 42nd street passage. I work downtown now so it's been a while.

It's in the passageway from Port Authority to Times Square. I remember looking at it as I stumbled home one night like...Wha??


K, just walked thru on a walk of shame (well, not really shame so much as walk of genital scrubbing in another borough imminent). ANYWAY, yeah, that is totes farked up, was gonna take pix, will at some point when I don't feel like total barfy crap. But it's totally "you're tired, work sucks, it ain't getting better , just farking go home, where u may want to kill yrself, but who cares, you're gonna die anyway". NYC is farking messed up, like even it's official capacity! This ain't barsky or whomever painting snotty hipster art. This is straight up state sponsored 'kill yourself' public art. !!!!!!
