Search Engine

This cartoon came to my attention via Centered Librarian. On the one hand, there is nothing wrong with updating names. A ‘computer’ used to mean a person who did calculations for a living. On the other hand, a search engine (in the current sense of the term) is something radically different from a librarian. A search [Read More...]

He Threw It

This cartoon by Tom Toles is poignant for multiple reasons. It doesn’t just highlight the tendency of some Christians to blame Jesus for their hatred and attacks on others. It also points out the irony of doing so in the name of Jesus, about whom a famous (if not exactly canonical) story is told about him refusing to [Read More...]

Thus Saith The Dictionary

This comic from Robot Hugs explores some of the many reasons why students should not start an essay with “Webster’s Dictionary defines X as…” I had been thinking about blogging on this topic even before the cartoon was drawn to my attention, and so I decided to share it and offer some thoughts on the subject.

Staring at their Hands in Despair

April 1st’s Bizarro is funny, but also problematic. How can people who are engaging in constant conversation be “incapable of conversation”?

Responding [Read More...]

Does Evangelicalism Make You A Better Person?

In a recent post about why Evangelical Christianity doesn’t make you a better person, Neil Carter wrote the following: Evangelical Christianity Has Messed Up Priorities The evangelical Christian vision of heaven is based on right belief, not on right behavior.  For evangelicals, it’s not the loving, caring, hard-working people of the world who get into [Read More...]

A Slight Gust of Wind

  From Pictorial Theology. In case you can’t read the sheet that blew away, it says, “But, remember folks, these are just useful allegories until you figure it out for yourselves. The End.”   [Read more...]

Jesus Burdens Our Religious Freedom

I think this political cartoon makes an excellent point. Various things may or may not be legal, but if one is a follower of Jesus, it can be argued that his teachings burden our religious freedom. To quote Paul, “All things are lawful – but not all things are beneficial.” Christians may have the right [Read More...]
