Saddam Hangs

Iraqis ring in the new year with the execution of their old dictator, Saddam Hussein. He was hanged 54 days after his conviction for mass murder. (Why can't we get speedy trials like that in the US? Here in Florida, we discontinued executions because someone alleged the lethal injections might actually "hurt" the murderers. Incredible.) They're saving Saddam's bloodthirsty 1/2 brother's execution for another occasion. Of course, the religious fighting continues. See Chick's THE EXECUTION.

Religious Fraternity Wins Right to Pick Members

A new Fraternity (called Brothers for Christ) at the University of Missouri wins the right to do what other fraternities have done for decades... pick and chose who they want to join. But in this case, their selection process was challenged by ACLU types that said they shouldn't "discriminate" based on religious beliefs. (I bet they accept Jews For Jesus!) The obvious question is who other than Christians would want to join a Christian fraternity? This was a complaint in search of a victim. Amazing that this stuff doesn't get laughed out of court in the first place. See Chick's THE TRIAL.

200+ Nigerian Thieves Burn To Death

Over 200 Nigerian fuel thieves went up in flames yesterday after cutting a hole in a pipe line and robbing the fuel. This is a recurring problem in Nigeria, where as many as 750 locals have perished at one time in similar accidents. The thieves often include women and children, anyone who can carry a container and get in on the action. (They should have followed the simple commandment, Thou Shall Not Steal!) See Chick's THE THIEF.

Buddha Boy Reappears in Nepal

A boy that some call the next Buddha, has reappeared after vanishing for the last several months in Nepal. See Chick's SOMETHING IN COMMON?

Saddam Sentenced To Hang W/in 30 Days

Saddam loses his appeal and is sentenced to hang within 30 days. Meanwhile, his Genocide trial continues for the mass murder of 180,000 Kurds in the late 1980s. Advocates of appeasement warn that hanging Saddam could anger her supports. Personally, I think they should say the verdict will be carried out when -- and if-- another ten victims are killed by his supporters. That way the blood will be on the hands of those who want him spared. See Chick's MEN OF PEACE?

Ethiopia Attacks Islamic Neighbor

Ethiopia (a mostly Christian nation) has attacked Somalia with fighter jets to prevent Islamic extremists from invasion. Chick points out Ethiopia's troubled past in LOVE THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

Rabbi Warns About Dangers of Xmas Trees

Heard on a radio show from a Rabbi complaining that Jews are marrying too many Christians (now almost 50%) and celebrating non-Jewish traditions: "The Christmas tree is very anti-Jewish. The green represents everlasting life, the sap represents Christ's blood, and the star represents the star that led the wisemen to the Manger. I don't think I would want to be teaching MY kids that sort of thing!" Funny, my Church has NEVER taught me any of those things-- I had to learn it from a Rabbi! Haw-haw! Merry Christmas everyone!

Alberto Video on Website for Free Downloads

Just when you thought Alberto was beginning to fade away, he pops up again-- this time featured on a website that offers free downloads of his video testimony. It's interesting viewing, especially for those who have never seen Alberto in action before. See Chick's ALBERTO comic.

Anti-religion Activist Sets Self Ablaze

An anti-Christian activist who was angry about the return of "Christmas break" and "Easter Break" (instead of "Winter break" and "Spring Break) set himself on fire as a protest in Bakersfield. Police put out the blaze, but he was seriously burned. (Maybe that's what Bush Sr., meant when he called for "a thousand points of light." If so, we still have 999 more to go.) See Chick's REAL HEAT.

California Judges Threaten to Overturn Gay Marriage Ban

The Californian Supreme court, famous for it's left wing activism, has stepped in to listen to (and probably overturn) the state's ban on gay Marriage. The ban was sustained by a lower court, but all members of the Supreme Court decided they wanted to have a shot at overturning the law that the vast majority of their citizens voted for. See Chick's THE GAY BLADE.

Dragon Gives Virgin Birth

A Komodo dragon lays 25 fertilized eggs in an English zoo-- without exposure to any males for sex. This is actually the second time this is known to have happened. The other happened earlier this year and resulted in seven baby dragons from a mother, but no father. Officials promise not to name any of the babies Jesus.

More Churches Flee Episcopal Grasp

The Episcopal church is losing more churches as a result of moving too the far left on social issues, gay activism, and redistributing the wealth. Two of the most prominent and largest Episcopal parishes in Virginia voted overwhelmingly Sunday to leave The Episcopal Church and join fellow Anglican conservatives forming a rival denomination in the U.S. Earlier in the controversy, leaders promised to reach out to more mainstream Bible believers, but instead, voted in a leftwing Bishop with a broad social agenda to lead the church for the next seven years. Despite applause by many liberal news outlets, the church has been losing membership ever since.

Iran and Germany hold Holocaust conferences

Iran holds a conference on the Holocaust, giving controversial historians a chance to present evidence that the 6,000,000 figure of Jewish dead is exaggerated in order to benefit Israel. Jewish activists are outraged. Germany retaliates by holding a conference to prove the number of victims was not exaggerated in any way-- but the results of any such conference in Germany, Austria, or France would be illegal if they didn't comply with the official government version of the Holocaust. All three countries made it illegal to question the Holocaust in any way and have thrown writers and researchers in jail for raising the question. The most famous prisoner, David Irving, a controversial but accomplished historian on World War II, is currently serving a three year sentence in an Austrian jail because he didn't deny the Holocaust, but claimed he had documented ways in which it had been exaggerated. Chick believes the Holocaust was part of a Catholic Inquisition. See Chick's HOLOCAUST.

Chilean President Discharges Grandson of Penochete

The Chilean Socialist President discharged the grandson of Penochete from the military, because he praised his grandfather at the former Dictator's funeral. The left wing leader claimed it was an insult to the military, because the young man said Penochete saved the country from Marxism, and the grandson is also an Army officer. Penochete did prevent a Marxist takeover of Chile with a military coup, which is said to have killed 3,000 Marxist in the process. However, when compared to the numbers of civilians murdered by Marxist when they took control of other countries, it was a drop in the bucket. Chick cites correctly the US Senate's findings that the Chinese communists murdered 60 million during their rule... And that's a figure that has increased since the study was made in 1971. See Chick's KINGS OF THE EAST.

Christian Embassy Threatened

Christian Embassy, a group that encourages and supports Christians in the military, is being attacked for holding prayers before breakfast in the Pentagon. A Jewish lawyer and former Navy officer (named Weinstein) is threatening a class action law suit claiming the prayers are being subsidized by taxpayers (How? Are they breathing Pentagon air while they are praying?) See Chick's THE CHAPLAIN.

Portland Catholics Reach Sex Abuse Settlement

Portland Oregon archdiocese gets agreement with all but 20 claimants over sexual abuse (of mostly teenaged males by gay priests). The multimillion dollar settlement has not been disclosed publicly, but the churches do not want open trials and they are paying dearly to avoid it. However, they are also threatening bankruptcy, so lawyers have pressure not to overreach. See Chick's ALBERTO.

Gay Serial Killer Murders 23

A homosexual homeless man is arrested and confesses to killing 23 men and boys after raping them. Most the victims agreed to let the killer tie them up for the purpose of having sex with them. (You won't see a float celebrating that in the next gay pride parade.) They should have read Chick's SIN CITY.

Israel Right Blasts Left for Book Changes in Map

Right wing Israelis blasted the Left for changing the maps in student text books and revealing the 1967 borders before Israel invaded and took the West Bank and annexed more Palestinian land. The Left wing official who made the change said he did so because Israel was demanding Arab books also show the borders, and they were refusing to do so because the Jews themselves were not practicing what they preached. See Chick's SQUATTERS.

Australia Ends Ban on Cloning

Australia ends it ban on human cloning to allow embryo's to be cloned for stem cell research. Critics contend that allowing cloning for any reason allows scientists to treat human lives like lab rats. Meanwhile, Michael J. Fox admits that he used "too much medication and miss-timed it" before filming an ad to help a Democratic Senator win in Missouri. (Rush Limbaugh was attacked for suggesting Fox's moments were exaggerated for the ad to create sympathy for his disease. His allegations drew nationwide protest and condemnation before the election, but very few will hear Fox's admission... and it won't change the election result. Fox's pick for the Senate won, and the balance of power in Washington swung as a result of the exaggerated campaign ad.) See Chick's WHO KILLED CLARICE?

Another gay priest settlement... $60 mil.

The largest Archdiocese in California agrees to pay $60 million to settle claims by Catholics who say they were sexually abused by their priests. Most of the victims were teen boys at the time, and the claims go back as early as the 1930s. Just 8% of the 500 cases are settled with this round, leaving the door wide open for more. The Vatican is said to be desperate to avoid trails where details of the abuse are published and discussed by the media, but some are almost certain to go to trial. Over $100 million as already been spent to settle similar claims in the LA area, so this is just the tip of the iceberg. Alberto claimed priests were abusing young boys decades before anyone believed it. See Chick's ALBERTO full comic books.

Pope Prays At Mosque

The Pope continues his trip to Turkey with a visit to an islamic Mosque, making him only the second Pope to visit such a heathen temple. Most Chick fans will probably wonder, "Did he pray to Mary or the Moon God?" See Chick's THE DECEIVED.

South Africa Begins Gay Marriage

South Africa, the AIDS capital of the world, becomes the 5th nation to allow homosexuals to marry one another. It seems a little odd that a country so stricken by AIDS would turn around and encourage more of the same behavior that is most responsible for spreading the disease in the first place, but hey, whatever! See Chick's DOOM TOWN.
