Wish I Had Said That

Another great cartoon from Spike Davis. I wonder how many more things that Jesus never said, but some people think he did, you can list. 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.

Messing With Absolutists

Today’s Non Sequitur. If God is a personal being, then God would have to have a sense of humor, to put up with the things that are said about God and in the name of God. If God was as intolerant as some of God’s purported followers are and make God out to be, then either [Read More…]
