Matt Bors to Draw for Free Inquiry

***Update***: Matt issued a retraction on his press release:

“I have to retract my earlier press release about cartooning for Free Inquiry. My future contributions to the magazine were not as certain as I thought and they have informed me that I am not their regular cartoonist. My future with the magazine is uncertain at this point.

I take blame for any confusion.”

Cartoonist Matt Bors has been tapped to draw cartoons for Free Inquiry magazine! He will be taking the place of long-time contributor Don Addis.

While Addis is fantastic, Bors is much more current and Internet-friendly.

The October/November issue has hit newsstands and features four cartoons by Bors that deal with papal indulgences, why god allows suffering, Barack Obama’s religiosity and Blue Laws that prevent liquor from being sold on Sunday. (A pressing concern for the secular lush.) Bors also illustrated the cover.

“Religious issues are some of my favorite to tackle,” says Bors. “Editorial cartooning is about bringing the powerful down a notch through humor. What better target than the creator of the universe and his Earth-bound surrogates?”

“I’m proud to be joining a magazine that looks at society’s most cherished beliefs with a skeptical eye. It is the approach I strive for in my cartoons.”

Here’s just one example of Bors’ fantastic work:

    I should probably send off one of those clip ‘n save things. I can tick all the boxes so I get extra forgiveness and a free pass to happy land when I pop my clogs. Horray!

    How come there’s a “See Bible for details” footnote in the “Get out of purgatory free” card? There’s no purgatory in the Bible.
