Fundamentalist in Chains

Another thought-provoking cartoon by David Hayward: David expresses astonishment that some Christians think that this image depicts exactly the way things should be.

The Blogging Preacher

Jim Linville shared some cartoons which he suggested illustrated the preaching of bibliobloggers. I rather envy Jim West his, since I think it would fit me rather nicely: In case you’re curious but are unlikely to click through, here’s the one he actually assigned to me: Click through to see which one Joel Watts got!
