Tony Blair Converts to Catholicism

Former UK Prime Minster Tony Blair converted to Catholicism this week. He was a former member of the Church of England (the official religion of the royals and the most commonly practiced religion in England). As Prime Minister, Blair led the fight to legalize homosexual relationships with boys 16 years and up, but now he's joining a church that officially frowns on such legislation (although cynics would point out many Catholic priests have been involved is such relationships, as recent scandals have revealed). Blair's wife is a Roman Catholic, and his family usually attended Mass with her. Less than 10% of England's liberal Church of England members regularly attend church. Blair said he resisted talking about his religious views in office out of fear of being seen as a nut. He recently met with Pope in person. It's unknown if they discussed his views then or his upcoming conversion. See Chick's THE BEAST. (Article at

New Jersey Bans the Death Penalty

New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine signed a bill this week to outlaw the death penalty in his state. The move saves the life of child killer Ambrose Harris. In fact, the bill was signed 15 years to the day when Harris abducted seven-year-old Megan (of Megan's Law fame), raped her, strangled her to death, then raped her dead body and dumped it in a park. Megan's father lobbied to stop the ban, but Democrats ignored his pleas. He said it was a slap in the face of the victims. Republicans tried to preserve the death penalty for cases where cops are killed, children are raped and murdered, or terrorists kill innocents. Democrats refused the compromise and passed the bill along a party line vote. See Chick's THE EXECUTION. For more info, read:

Jodie Foster Announces She's A Lesbian

Actress Jodie Foster announced she was gay, another in a long line of Hollywood types to publically announce their homosexuality. (Isn't that special?) Her brother wrote in a book that she was gay, following in the footsteps of their mother who was also a Lesbian and who made the kids call her lover "Aunt." Foster was also outed earlier in the year by the Gay activist magazine, OUT (but she remained silent at the time, probably angry she was being used by her "comrads"). See Chick's THE GAY BLADE.

Pope Attacks Climate Change

Pope Benedict XVI, the leader of more than a billion Roman Catholics, suggested that fears over man-made emissions melting the ice caps and causing a wave of unprecedented disasters were nothing more than scare-mongering.
The German-born Pontiff said that while some concerns may be valid it was vital that the international community based its policies on science rather than the dogma of the environmentalist movement.

Huckabee Apologizes for Telling Truth

Republican candidate Mike Huckabee apologized to Mitt Romney for telling the truth about Mormonism. Huckabee questioned how "Christian" Mormonism could be if it considered Jesus and Satan to be brothers. Pro-Mormon activists claimed it was all bigotry and lies, so Huckabee quickly backtracked and apologized. But as a former Mormon at Chick Publications points out, Huckabee was telling the truth, and you can read how Mormons consider Jesus and Satan to be "spirit brothers" on the official Mormon website!
You can read all about the flap at denials at
And for more embarrassing Mormon beliefs, you can read Chick's latest Crusader comic, THE ENCHANTER, which is very well sourced making it difficult for critics to claim it is fiction. See Chick's THE ENCHANTER comic.

Episcopal Bishop to "Marry," wants to be June bride

The nation’s first openly gay Episcopal bishop told a crowd of about 200 that come June he’s marching down the aisle with his longtime male partner Mark Andrew. "I always wanted to be a June bride," said Bishop Gene Robinson at a talk on Nov. 27 at Nova Southeastern University.
"It may take many years for religious institutions to add their blessing for same-sex marriages and no church, mosque or synagogue should be forced to do so. But that should not slow down progress for the full civil right to marry," Robinson said. "Because New Hampshire will have legal unions beginning in January, my partner of 20 years and I will enter into such a legal union next June." ...

Wearing a raspberry clergy shirt with a cleric collar and pectoral cross, Robinson characterized the "religious right" as close-minded, taking a literal interpretation of Bible condemnation of homosexuality."The greatest single hindrance to achievement of full rights for gays and lesbians can be laid at the doorstep of the three Abrahamic faiths-- Judaism, Christianity and Islam. It’s going to take people of faith to end discrimination," said Robinson, who was invested as the ninth bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of New Hampshire in 2004.

New Hampshire legalized "civil unions" there starting this January.
Unlike New Hampshire, Massachusetts has still not legalized either "civil unions" or "homosexual marriage." They're just a fiction of some GLBT activists, four judges, and a former Massachusetts governor named Romney. So Bishop Robinson must be thanking his god that he's in a state where he can legally become a bride this June.

Lesbians Sue Sperm Donor

Two New York Lesbians convinced their Obstetrician to donate his sperm so they could conceive. He agreed and now for the punch line (only it isn't a joke): The child just turned 19, so they sued the doctor for child support and won! His big mistake? 1.) He should have "just said no" and 2.) He kept some contact with the child over the years, and they used it against him in the trial. Oy! See Chick's THE TRIAL.

Another Church Shooting

There was another Colorado shooting of Christians yesterday by a younger man dressed in black, and another two people were killed. This time, the target was the New Life Church in Colorado Springs. This is the same church founded and pastored by Ted Haggard, who stepped down last year after his involvement in a gay sex scandal.

Luckily, Colorado is not one of the states that outlaws any guns near a church. A female security officer was armed and shot the killer dead. If she hadn't have done so, there is no telling how many might have been killed. Police suspect the killer is the same man who killed the day before just 60 miles away at a Youth With A Mission center. See Chick's GOOD OL' BOYS for a similar church shooting story.

Canadian Murderer Out In Ten? Jurors Pounder Cannabalism

A Canadian Pig Farmer was sentenced to "life" in prison for killing six women, but he could get parole in just ten years. He told an undercover cop he killed 49 women, and they are planning to put him on trial for at least 20 more that they know of. Evidence is limited, however, because he fed their remains to his pigs who were eventually slaughtered and fed to fellow Canadians. It's nice to know they won't actually HURT him though, and he may be set free in just a decade, as compared to "bloodthirsty" nations like the US that would execute him... Call us bloodthirsty if you want, but we're not the ones who ate the sausage and sentenced him to only ten years before allowing a parole option. That's less than 1/4th a year for each woman he killed! See Chick's THE EXECUTION.

Four Shot, Two Killed At Christian Center

A Christian Missionary Center in Denver was attacked by a white man with dark hair, beard, glasses, and a skull cap. He shot and killed two people and wounded two others. No motive is currently known. For details, see:

Venezuela Says No To Dictator

Venezuela rebuked Hugu Chavez in his attempt to become dictator for life. He proposed unlimited terms in office, and the power to seize private property, along with other major constitutional revisions, but the voters said "No!" Chavez responded by saying his public wasn't "mature enough" to want a Socialist state... yet. Congrats to the Venezuela people for not falling into the same trap the Germans did when they voted their Socialist leader, Hitler, similar powers back in the late 1930s! See Chick's FAT CATS.

UK teacher sent home from Sudan

The UK woman who was sentenced to 15 days in prison for naming her class teddy bear "Muhammad" was released and sent home today (deported). I'm curious how many foreigners move to Sudan, and of the few that do, why they deport them for such trivial reasons. Perhaps we need to start deporting an equal % for more valid reasons, like overstaying their visas and taking US jobs without paying taxes and social security. Just a thought in time for Christmas (or the Holidays, as they would want us to say). See Chick's latest, UNFORGIVEN.

Gays Marriage Loses Episcopal Endorsement

It was splattered all across the headlines when the episcopal church elected an openly gay Bishop and allowed priests to bless same sex unions, but the latest convention of Bishops reversed all of that and the media has barely mentioned it at all. The new decision is not to elect any more openly gay Bishops, or to endorse any more same sex unions. The compromise however, is they will not remove the gay Bishop (who was also a alcoholic), nor will they do much to punish those priests who defy their demand to stop blessing homosexual relationships. See Chick's THE GAY BLADE.

Hugo Chavez Attempts to Snatch More Power

Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez attempts to make his rule last for his lifetime, by altering the constitution and granting him more power. He says he wants to make the nation even more socialist and the new changes will allow his government to seize private property, among other socialist goals. See Chick's MACHO.

Sudan Convicts Teacher for Naming Teddy Bear

The African nation of Sudan convicted a British teacher to 15 days in jail for allowing her class to name their class teddy bear "Mohammad". Initially, she faced 40 lashes, but was convicted of a lessor charge. Meanwhile, angry Muslim street demonstrators demanded she be put to death. See Chick's MEN OF PEACE?
