Today’s Speed Bump cartoon intersects with two interests of mine – the Bible and science fiction. It alludes to the beatitudes, and hints that the fulfillment of Jesus’ saying regarding the meek inheriting the Earth might leave us prone to invasion by aliens in ways that we aren’t at present. It is a funny and unconventional angle on an all-too-familiar phrase, and thus one that could lead to interesting discussions about the beatitudes, meekness, self-defense, expectations regarding the future, and much else.
Before or After the Meek Inherit the Earth?
