There are so many things that might be said about this cartoon. It makes the point that things have become commonplace in our time which would have seemed miraculous a few hundred years ago, never mind several thousand. And it asks us to imagine how we might respond to someone who came claiming revealed truths [Read More...]

Last Supper Selfie

This explains why they had all gathered on one side of the table… The picture came to my attention via Facebook. I can’t quite make out the signature. Does anyone know the original source? [Read more...]

Some Things You Just Don’t Do (According to Leviticus)

People in White Coats shared the above cartoon. It highlights a number of important things, including the fact that Leviticus mandates a great deal that Christians simply do not follow, or even try to follow, but also the character of a deity envisaged as “zapping” those who do not observe the laws.

The Pope, the God, and the GOP

The cartoon above by Mike Lukovich offers an amusing take on a famous painting. It nicely situates Big Oil as thinking of itself as God. One way of understanding it is that Big Oil as God is taking a bribe from the GOP (the Republican Party) to ignore the Pope. But that would represent a reversal of what [Read More...]

The Jubilee law required that once a generation, land would revert to its original owner. The possibility of [Read More...]

And I wonder whether imagining Jesus saying he wished he’d come up with a particular phrase is a helpful reminder that he was a human being – a gifted teller of [Read More...]

Why Didn’t God Stop the Church Shooting?

This cartoon should serve as a helpful reminder to fundamentalists. You must make sure to use the right implausible answer to the specific question asked. Otherwise, theological and ethical confusion might result (in other words, the problems with your worldview might be exposed to your conversation partner and, worse still, to you).   [Read more...]

Preaching On Sin

This cartoon nicely illustrates the point that we all enjoy condemning those whose sins are obvious to us, while we bristle at anyone who points out our own. If there is something that fundamentalists, conservatives, moderates, progressives, and liberals all share in common, it is this tendency, and the fact that none of us can [Read More...]
