New Tract: WHO IS HE?

Chick released another new tract for July 1st called WHO IS HE? (Drawn by Chick himself.) It features a militant black revolutionary on the first page who looks and sounds like Louis Farrakhan. Haw-haw-haw!

Dobson Slams Obama

James Dobson, host of Focus On The Family, devoted 18 minutes of his religious program attacking Senator Obama's activist version of the Gospel. Dobson seemed furious with Obamma's selective reading of the Bible to promote a liberal agenda, and said "(Obama is) deliberately distorting the traditional understanding of the Bible to justify his own world view... and is dragging it throug the gutter." Dobson does not endorse McCain either, but he may support the moderate Republican in the end because McCain does not support Abortion on demand and Obama does.

Heinz Unveils Gay Ad

Heinz Food Inc., starts a new ad ( in England promoting homosexual families. Gay marriage is illega in England, but it is in the USA where the greater outrage is occuring. When conservative Republican Senator Heinz died in a plane crash, his widow, Terisa Heinz, married a liberal Democrat (John Kerry). She then used her dead husband's fortune (earned through Heinz Food, inc.) to fund the new husband's campaign. Now the family fortune seems to be encouraging other liberal causes as well.

Anti-Christian Groups Sue Over S.C. License Plate

A group that advocates separation of church and state filed a federal lawsuit Thursday to prevent South Carolina from becoming the first state to create "I Believe" license plates.

The group contends that South Carolina's government is endorsing Christianity by allowing the plates, which would include a cross superimposed on a stained glass window.

Washington-based Americans United for Separation of Church and State filed the lawsuit on behalf of two Christian pastors, a humanist pastor and a rabbi in South Carolina, along with the Hindu American Foundation. See Chick's THE TRIAL.

School Fires Creationist Science Teacher

The school board of a small central Ohio community voted unanimously Friday to fire a teacher accused of preaching his Christian beliefs despite staff complaints and using a device to "burn" (temporarily imprint) the image of a cross on students' arms.

Cross ControversyMount Vernon City Schools / APThe school board in Mount Vernon, Ohio, voted to fire a science teacher accused of using a device to burn a cross (or "X") on students' arms. Independent investigators also said John Freshwater preached Christian beliefs in class and taught creationism.

The report came a week after a family filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Columbus against Freshwater and the school district, saying Freshwater burned a cross on a child's arm that remained for three or four weeks.

Several students interviewed by investigators described Freshwater, who has been employed by the school district located 40 miles northeast of Columbus for 21 years, as a great guy and their favorite teacher.

Freshwater used a science tool known as a high-frequency generator to temporarilly imprint images of a cross on students' arms in December, the report said. Freshwater told investigators he simply was trying to demonstrate the device on several volunteers and described the images as an "X," not a cross.

Other findings show that Freshwater taught that carbon dating was unreliable, a fact that angers those who promote evolution. See Chick's BIG DADDY.

Sex Offender wins $57 Million Jackpot

The Michigan Mega Million Lottery awarded former sex offender Fred Topous $57 million for his winning lotto ticket last week. Topous, age 45, decided to take the $37 million in payout now rather than wait for installments. According to the Corrections Department's offender profile, Topous pleaded guilty to breaking and entering charges in 1984 and 1988 and to assault with intent to commit sexual penetration in 1999. In the latter case, Topous was charged with having sex with a 13-year-old girl, USA Today reported. A real class act, and proof that not only do bad things happen to good people, but good things happen to bad people! At least... until they face the faceless one! See Chick's THE BIG SPENDER.

Two Muslim Women Booted From Obama Backdrop

Two Muslim women attending Barack Obama's rally in Detroit on Monday said they were barred by campaign volunteers from sitting directly behind the presidential candidate because they wear head scarfs. The campaign volunteers seem to have wanted spectators that would project a non-Muslim image. Obama has been fighting a Pro-Muslim image due to his middle name (Husain), and his popularity among Anti-Israel, anti-American Muslim groups. This perception plays into Republican attempts to show him as weak on Terrorism. The image took another blow this week when a conference call with Senator Kerry suggested that if Obama were elected and Ben Laden were captured, Obama have Ben Laden tried as a civilian with all the rights and privilages of a US citizen in court... including the ability to be freed on technical grounds (i.e. if he was illegally kidnapped) or civil rights complaints by the likes of the ACLU (e.g., if he was too roughly treated).

Rome Denies Filming for Da Vinci Code Sequel

Rome's diocese said Monday it has barred the producers of "Angels & Demons" from filming in two churches for the prequel to the "The Da Vinci Code" the popular book and film that angered many Catholic leaders. Producers of the film, directed by Ron Howard and starring Tom Hanks, were turned down because the movie "does not conform to our views," said Monsignor Marco Fibbi, a spokesman for the diocese. The film depicts the Vatican as being run by a conservative murderous cult, and that Jesus fathered children. See Alberto's comic, DOUBLE CROSS.

Supremes Bypass Election to Allow Gay Cal Marriage

After voiding a popular state ban and then going out of their way to prevent the public a chance to pass a Constitutional ammendment to prevent gay marriages, the early deadline set by the California Supreme court ends today (June 16). Now homosexuals will marry in that state by the thousands. (A UCLA study estimates half of the states 100,000 gay couples will wed, and estimate 68,000 gays from outside the state will also arrive to wed.) However, the scheme could backfire as the blatent judicial activism will help motivate angry conservative and mainstream voters to turn out in droves in November when the ammendment finally comes to a vote. The tilt in turnout might cost Democrats a vital state in the general election, and could be a deciding factor in determining if Obama (who is friendly towards gay marriage) and McCaine (who disapproves of it) becomes president.

Repent America Fined for Demonstration

The leader of a Christian evangelical group who expressed his religious views to tourists near the Liberty Bell was placed on one year's probation for refusing to move from a sidewalk where demonstrations are banned.

Repent America director Michael A. Marcavage, 28, of Lansdowne, was sentenced Friday after a two-day bench trial. He was ordered to pay a $420 fine and told to notify the U.S. Park Service and get a permit if he planned to return to the site. Repent America is a Fundamentalist group warning of damnation. See Chick's SIN CITY.

Manga Bible Shows Bible in Pictures

A giant Bible graphic novel, the Manga Bible, wins some media praise in the local newspaper. The author of the comic, Siku (a Nigerian living in London who's real name is Ajinbayo Akinsuku) says it's really an overview with stories that provide understanding of what the entire Bible includes. It's available fromm Galilee Trade (2008) for $12.95.

Chick's Fears of Censorship Realized in London

From June 2nd: Two Christian preachers were stopped from handing out Bible extracts by police because they were in a Muslim area in London. They say they were told by a Muslim police community support officer that they could not preach there and that attempting to convert Muslims to Christianity was a hate crime.

Ye Must Be Born Again... Twice.

When Keri McCartney was 6-months pregnant, doctors discovered a large tumor growing from her unborn baby's tailbone. Though the growth was non-cancerous, it was full of blood vessels and as big as the fetus itself, presenting a deadly threat. In February, doctors at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston removed the fetus from McCartney's uterus, took out the tumor and then returned the fetus. Ten weeks later, on May 3, Macie Hope McCartney was born again. So now the obvious question is, if the baby grows up and get saved, does that make the baby a "Born Again" or a "Born Again AGAIN"? As Chick would say: Haw-haw!

Lesbians Provoke Public Outcry At Baseball Field

A lesbian in Seattle complained that an usher at Safeco Field asked her to stop kissing her date because it was making another fan uncomfortable. The usher said the two were kissing and groping. Now the gay community is protesting and holding a "kiss in". (Various gay groups have promoted public kissing at sports events to provoke angry reactions so they could turn around and use the publicy to promote their cause.) See Chick's THE GAY BLADE.

9/11 Mastermind Wants Death Sentence

Five years after his capture, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed appears before a judge at the U.S. military base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. When told he will face the death penalty if he is found guilty of arranging the attack on the twin towers, Mohammed responded, "This is what I wish, to be a martyr." He and four co-defendants are arraigned on charges they plotted the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Since he wants to die, does the mean that if he isn't executed, we might get attacked by terrorists in retaliation? See Chick's WHO CARES?

Californial Judges Ignore Public Vote on Gay Marriage

The California Supreme court overturned the state law banning gay marriage recently, saying they planned to allow gays to marry on June 17. It was the latest instance of activist judges bypassing the legistlature and majority rule to impose their values on the public. Pro-family groups quickly got enough signitures to put it on the ballot to make it a Constitutional ammendment, but the same judges ruled they were going to allow marriages June 17 and not permit any delay. They hope people will just accept it by the election time, but it could backfire and turn out the Conservative vote, which would actually hurt Obama's chances in November. See Chick's SIN CITY.

Catholic Refused Communion for supporting Obama

Obama reached the needed deligate count last night, and many Democrats are now pressuring Clinton to conceed. Meanwhile, a California businessman was refused communion because he gave a talk endorsing Obama in spite of Obama's support of abortion. How many other Catholics will support Obama in spite of his pro-choice stance is unknown at this time. See Chick's WHO MURDERED CLARICE?

Pope's UFO comments JUST IN TIME!

Good thing the Pope said it's okay to believe in alien UFOs (see earlier post) because last night at 1:14 AM, I saw one with my own eyes! It (probably) wasn't a flying saucer or anything like that, but it was certainly and Unidentified Flying Object. It looked like a meteorite, except it was bright green and lit up the entire sky. In fact, I wasn't even looking up but it was very dark (no moon) and suddenly I saw the ground turn bright green as if a green flair had been launched, so looked upward. It clearly wasn't a flair. It streaked across the sky several miles per second, then vanished in silence. If it was a flying saucer, it sure left in a hurry. Perhaps they found a Chick tract and thought they escape before before being converted. Haw-haw!

Obama Quits Race-baiting Church

Senator Barack Obama quit his church of 20 years after a visiting Catholic Priest (Michael Pfleger) created another controversy by making new race-baiting comments from the pulpit. Obama made clear he wasn't happy with Pfleger's comments — in which the Catholic priest pretended he was Clinton crying over "a black man stealing my show" — and said he was "deeply disappointed in Father Pfleger's divisive, backward-looking rhetoric, which doesn't reflect the country I see or the desire of people across America to come together in common cause." Earlier, Rev. Wright made even worse inflammatory remarks, claiming the US government started AIDS and pushed drugs on blacks. (Wright was Obama's minister for over a decade, and Obama named his book after Wright's sermon, "the Audacity of Hope"). When Wright retired, Obama compared him to a family member he could not disown... but now he has disowned the entire church. See Chick's UNFORGIVEN.
