Doctor Who: The Pyramid at the End of the World

The episode begins with the Secretary General of the UN coming to Bill Potts looking for the president, to which Bill responds that she doesn’t know the president and wouldn’t have voted for him, because he’s orange.

And I lament the fact that this cartoon, and its allusions, are necessary. Just as I lament the fact that the next section of the wall could carry similar signage [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…]
