French Liberals Inspire Obama Voodoo Doll

French liberals release a new gag gift to attack their conservative (by socialist standards) President. It's the President Nicolas Sarkozy Voodoo Doll! An appeals court in Paris ruled Nov. 28 that voodoo dolls may remain on sale but must carry a notice saying that pricking them harms his dignity. A lower court last month rejected Sarkozy's demand for a ban, ruling the doll was within "the right to humor." Now the big question is, how long before American conservatives pull the same gag on our new liberal President? 52% of Americans would probably dislike the idea, but that still leaves over a hundred million voters to buy the dolls! See Chick's THE NERVOUS WITCH.


Patriotic Pastor Dies at 97

A church official says the clergyman credited with helping to push Congress to insert the phrase "under God" into the Pledge of Allegiance has died in Alexandria, Pa. The Rev. George M. Docherty was 97.

The Rev. George M. Docherty, here with wife Sue in 2004, delivered sermons in 1952 and 1954 saying "under God" should be added to the Pledge of Allegiance.

Nancy Taylor, historian for the Huntingdon Presbyterian Church, says Docherty died on Thanksgiving at his home in Alexandria, Pa., with his wife, Sue, by his side.
Docherty delivered a sermon saying the pledge should acknowledge God in 1952 at Washington's New York Avenue Presbyterian Church, just blocks from the White House. See Chick's THE POOR REVOLUTIONIST.

Priest Urges Confession of Obama Voters

Father Joeseph Illo of Saint Joseph Church Catholic in Modesto, California, urged Catholics who voted for Obama and other politicians with strong pro-abortion view to confess. He said it voting for any politician that supports abortion "is certainly a sin, and perhaps a mortal sin." His position has received a lot of feedback from other Catholics, mostly positive.

Gays Force Mormon to Resign

Richard Raddon, Director of the Los Angeles Film Festival, was forced to resign his position after it became known that he donated $1,500 in support of Proposition 8, the recently passed amendment to the California Constitution that defines marriage as the union of one man and one woman. Raddon, a committed Mormon, was reportedly besieged by angry e-mails and phone calls to his home from supporters of the "No on 8" campaign, looking to punish him for his political views. The Mormon church urged its members to support the amendment and contributed $20 million toward its passage.

Raddon offered to resign his post when the contribution became public, but he was given a unanimous vote of confidence by the board of directors of Film Independent, which sponsors the film festival. The controversy over Raddon's involvement in the passage of Proposition 8 only grew, leading to a second offer of resignation, which was accepted. Proposition 8 passed by a comfortable 52-48 margin, helped by support from religious groups as well as African-Americans and Hispanics.

The political left preaches tolerance and acceptance but lives by a very different standard when it comes to political opinions. There is no room for dissenting political opinions in the salons of the liberal left, as Raddon painfully learned. No American, no matter what his line of work, should be hounded out of his job because of his political or religious views. Unfortunately for Raddon, he works in one of the most liberal job environments in the country, Hollywood. And Hollywood liberals demand conformity to their political orthodoxy in order to remain a member in good standing. See Chick's DOOM TOWN.

pro-gay Judicial Activists Strike Again

Less than a month after Floridians outlawed gay marriage here by a super majority, a pro-gay activist judge legislates from the bench (yet again). This time, it's a lower court judge in Miami who, despite blunt language that made the intent of the legistlature very clear, she unilaterally overturned the state ban on granting adaptions to gays. She decided two young boys (age 4 and 8) could be adopted by a middle aged homosexual and his lover. Chick's latest book, HOT TOPICS (and its exclusive tract, HOME ALONE), site studies that point out that the highest risk group for molesting boys is male homosexuals (they are three times the regular male risk). But hey, they aren't HER kids. Now the case may go to the State Supreme Court, which also has a legacy of liberal activism. See Chick's HOT TOPICS (page 21).

The View attacks Pastor Who Urges Sex

The older women on The View program took turns making fun at a pastor in Texas who urged his church of 20,000 to have sex with their marriage partners for seven days straight. The feminists in the group all felt this suggestion was outragous. See Chick's graphic novel, THE MARRIAGE MESS


Arab Acid Throwers Arrested

Ten Taliban rebels were arrested today for throwing acid on the faces of 15 school girls on their way to school (back on Nov.l2th). The president of Afghanistan has suggested the attackers should receive the death sentence. The children were on their way to school when the militants appeared on motorbikes and squirted them using plastic bottles. Three groups were attacked this way, including their math teacher. The Taliban is an Islamic Fundamentalist group that ran the nation under strict religious rules, including not allowing girls to attend school. See Chick's MEN OF PEACE?

Scientologist Shoot Former Member

A security guard at a Los Angeles Church of Scientology shot and killed a former member, claiming he was waving a couple of swords around and threatening current members in the parking lot. The Church of Scientology is famous for threatening and harassing former members, so it is hard to imagine one actually threatening them for a change. Most Christians consider the Scientologists as a cult. See Chick's SATAN'S MASTER.

Jewish Indians Move to Israel

JERUSALEM - The Israeli government has given permission for about 150 Indian citizens who believe they are one of the "lost tribes" of Israel to move legally to the Jewish state.

This decision clears the way for the arrival here of some of the remaining 7,200 members of the Bnei Menashe in India, who believe they are the descendants of Manasseh, one of the biblical patriarch Joseph's two sons and a grandson of Jacob.

"With so much economic and political turmoil in the world, it is comforting and reassuring to see that the Divine process of the Ingathering of the Exiles continues," said Michael Freund, chairman of Shavei Israel, a Jerusalem-based immigrant organization working with the "lost" Jews.

"Just as the prophets foretold, God is gathering in the Bnei Menashe, one of the Lost Tribes of Israel, and bringing them home to Zion," Freund [said].

The remaining thousands of members of the Bnei Menashe still reside in India, waiting to move to the Jewish state. Interior Minister Meir Shetreet, whose office must approve the group's immigration, reportedly allowed the 150 members to move here on humanitarian grounds, since the families were recently told their immigration had been approved, prompting many of them to sell their houses.

Vatican forgives John Lennon for "More popular than Jesus Christ" remark

Better late than never. The Vatican's official newspaper L'Osservatore Romano finally forgave John Lennon's infamous 1966 claim that his band was "more popular than Jesus."

In a curious twist, the way-past-due change of heart and mind came on the 40th anniversary of The White Album's 1968 release. Look Vatican, we don't want to tell you how to do your job, but you might have wanted to forgive Lennon's statement in 2007, the 40th anniversary of The Beatles' epochal Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

Sure, we'd argue that The White Album, which is really named The Beatles, is a more lasting classic than its globally influential predecessor. But you might want to consider the fact that Charles Manson misread the double-album as a code for an apocalyptic class and race war, George Harrison suggests "a damn good whacking" for "Pigs" in power, Lennon calls for "Revolution" not once but twice (that is, after he claims that "Happiness is a Warm Gun"), and McCartney kicks off the effort with a sex parody about Russian girls.

"The talent of Lennon and the other Beatles gave us some of the best pages in modern pop music," the Vatican mouthpiece argued, according to the UK's Telegraph, adding that only "snobs" would look down on the Fab Four at this stage of the immortality game. After all, L'Osservatore Romano concluded, The Beatles have indeed shown "an extraordinary resistance to the effects of time."

Time was indeed the essence of Lennon's comment. ""Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink," he blasphemed in 1966. "I don't know which will go first, rock and roll or Christianity."

Chick said that when the Beatles came to the United States, it didn't recover. See "Spellbound"

Pre-Schoolars Forced To Pledge Pro-gay

A pro-family advocate is outraged that a California public school teacher would pass out homosexual pledge cards to her kindergarten students.

The pledge cards were produced by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network, or GLSEN, and featured oaths that students would not use "anti-lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender language or slurs," that students would intervene on behalf of homosexual students when possible, and that they would actively support safer schools efforts.

Tara Miller is a kindergarten teacher at Faith Ringgold School of Arts and Science in Hayward, California. She passed out the pledge cards to her students, which she then asked them to sign. Peter LaBarbera, the president of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality, is outraged at Miller's actions.

"First of all, why is homosexuality as an issue being raised at all in kindergarten? These are students who don't even know what sex is yet, and this teacher is talking to them about homosexuality," he contends. "This is an abuse of these students' minds, and it's just wrong."

According to a report on, one parent was angry when she found her child's signature on the pledge card. LaBarbera believes this instance highlights the real agenda of the homosexual movement.

"This is just bizarre, and it shows how the teachers with their radical sexual agenda want to start early to reprogram these kids' minds. They want to undermine the faith teachings that the kids have at home; this is part of a plan," he suggests. "To me, this is like Hitler with Nazi Germany and the Soviets wanting to get to the youth and change the kids by getting to them at a very young age."


Sunday School Teacher Gives Topless Photo to Boy

SAN ANTONIO- A 27-year-old woman has been arrested on charges of distributing harmful material to a minor after a 14-year-old's parents found a topless photo of her on his cell phone.

Victoria Ann Chacon, a former middle school teacher, allegedly met the boy at their church, where she was a Sunday school teacher. Authorities at Somerset Independent School District said they found no evidence of any inappropriate relationships with students; the 14-year-old attended school elsewhere.

The boy's parents called police in March after finding racy letters in which Chacon professed her love. The boy initially refused to give a statement about the relationship, the arrest warrant says.

Several months later, the parents found a cell phone with a topless photo of Chacon. The phone was owned by Chacon and the two had been calling on another, according to court documents.

Gays Sue Dating Service

The Online dating service eHarmony is adding another personality trait to its 29 dimensions of computability: "Queerness."

The California-based company will begin providing same-sex matches as part of a settlement with New Jersey's Civil Rights Division. Gay Garden State resident Eric McKinley filed a complaint against the online matchmaker in 2005.

Under terms of the settlement, the company can create a new or differently named Web site for homosexual singles. The company can also post a disclaimer saying its compatibility-based matching system was developed from research of married heterosexual couples.

Neither the company nor its founder, Neil Clark Warren, admit any liability.

In addition, eHarmony will pay the division $50,000 to cover administrative costs. It will pay McKinley $5,000 and give him a free one-year membership to its new service. Once again, the courts reward the touble makers. See Chick's THE TRIAL.

Gay activists attack Pentecostal church

Worshippers at a Bible-teaching Pentecostal church (Assemblies of God) in Lansing, Mich., were stunned Sunday, November 9, 2008 when members of a gay, pro-anarchy organization named "Bash Back" interrupted their service to fling propaganda and condoms around the sanctuary, drape a profane banner from the balcony and feature two lesbians making out at the pulpit.

The Bash Back organization orchestrated a protest in front of Mount Hope Church to draw the church's security staff away from the sanctuary. Then gay activists who had dressed up and mixed in with church worshippers took action. Prayer had just finished when men and women stood up in pockets across the congregation, on the main floor and in the balcony.

"Jesus was gay," they shouted among other profanities and blasphemies as they rushed the stage. Some forced their way through rows of women and kids to try to hang a profane banner from the balcony while others began tossing fliers into the air. Two women made their way to the pulpit and began kissing.

The Bash Back organization's own announcement of other items members brought into the church, including a megaphone, noise makers, condoms, glitter by the bucket load, confetti, pink fabric.

According to the alternative Lansing City Pulse – which reported it was notified of the protest ahead of time and sent a reporter along instead of warning the church – the protesters also screamed at parishioners and pulled the church facility's fire alarm.

On the newspaper's forum page, a contributor commented, "Homosexuals and anarchists. A perfect combination of human beings with no hope, no morals, no future."

Many demonstrators fled and the rest were quiet after sheriff's officers were summoned. County Sheriff's Department deputies arrived quickly but oddly, no arrests were made. Police were not available for comment.

According to a source inside the church yesterday there was a “journalist” from the Lansing City Pulse along for the ride, tipped off about the action and more interested in getting a story than in preventing the vandalism, the violence and anti-Christian hatred being spewed by activists.

You can expect more actions like this in the wake of the election. Why has not the national media covered this story? If straight evangelicals raided a gay meeting, the nation would know it instantly thanks to the media. You can also be assured the evangelical protesters would be arrested. See Chick's SIN CITY.

Jerry Brown and California gays Sue Democracy

Angry that the public didn't vote their way, State Attorney General Jerry Brown (a famouse liberal Democrat) and homosexual activists go to the State Supreme Court to try and undo Proprosition 8, which defines marriage as between two people of the opposite sex. Although the public made their voice very clear on November 4th, gay activists hope to convince judicial activists on the court to undo the election. They have a sympathetic ear: It was the same court that created the mess by allowing gay marriages in the first place with a 3 to 4 vote. See Chick's DOOM TOWN.

Ft. Worth Episcopal Church Leaves Diocese

Another Episcopal Diocese of Forth Worth leaves the national church in protest of their ongoing drift toward pro-gay policies. (Many other Episcopal churches have split and opened new Angelican churches, as did the one here in Tallahassee.) See Chick's HOME ALONE (fromthe book, HOT TOPICS).

Church Raptures?

A church has vanished from the Russian village where it stood for almost 200 years, the local diocese said.

The Church of Christ's Resurrection, in the central Russian village of Komarovo, was built in 1809 but in early October someone took it away brick by brick, Father Vitaly a spokesman for the local Russian Orthodox Church, claimed. "We have sent a letter to local prosecutors," he said. "Who exactly did this, the investigation will show."

The church was in an isolated area only occasionally visited by clergymen, so the disappearance was not immediately noticed. (See Chick's WHO'S MISSING?)

Members of Alamo church arrested for distributing pamphlets

(From November 10, 2008)

Six members of Tony Alamo Christian Ministries have been arrested for placing pamphlets on vehicles in Texarkana, Texas. Police said they ignored instructions to stop.

The church members were cited for violating a city ordinance that prohibits distributing handbills on unattended vehicles. The charge carries a maximum sentence of a $267 fine.

Texarkana police Sgt. Shawn Fitzgerald said the members have been released from custody.

[So, now it's illegal to distribute tracts. I guess the logic is you still have freedom of speech to say and write whatever you want, so long as nobody else hears or reads it. They sure didn't wait long after the election to start enforcing the New World Order! Watch out, Chick could be the next target!] See Chick's THE BEAST.

Connecticut Judges Assume New Powers with Gay Marriage

Following the ever growing tactic of legistlating from the bench, liberal Supreme Court justices ruled on Oct. 10 to allow gay marriage in that state. Although gay marriage has been denied in every US election where it has been offered (even in recent California and Florida elections), gay activists have found collaboration amoung judicial activists who resent the majority of voters deciding the law. On Nov. 12th, Connecticut gays started to marry same sex couples as well. It remains to be seen how (and if) the public can reverse the high court's efforts to impose its vision on the state as a whole. One thing is for certain, the gay activists are hoping to wear down the public and get what they want any way they can, even if it undermines the democratic process. Will the public fight equally hard for what they believe in as well? See Chick's latest tract (in the book HOT TOPICS) HOME ALONE.

Obama's New (gay) Spiritual Leader

A conservative Christian activist says it's a sad omen for the Obama administration and the United States that Barack Obama has been seeking guidance from the Episcopal Church's first openly homosexual bishop.

The Times of London reports that the president-elect sought out New Hampshire homosexual bishop Vicki Gene Robinson for advice three times during his presidential campaign. Robinson, whose ordination in the Episcopal Church has caused a deep rift within the Anglican Communion, was reportedly sought out by Obama to discuss what it feels like to be "first."

Robinson notes in their three private conversations, Obama voiced his support for "equal civil rights" for homosexuals and described the election as a "religious experience." Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, believes Obama's consultations with Robinson show the true tenor of his upcoming administration.

"It looks like Billy Graham has been replaced by a gay bishop. We're moving to, perhaps, our first anti-Christian president; it's beyond post-Christian. Gene Robinson advocates homosexuality as part of the Christian experience," he explains. "Now Bible-believing Christians cannot accept that. Homosexual practice is sinful, as taught by the scriptures. This man [Obama] pretends to be faithful to Christianity, even as he works very hard to undermine it."

LaBarbera suggests Robinson may possibly replace Jeremiah Wright as one of Obama's main spiritual advisers. Wright was Obama's Chicago pastor for 20 years before disassociating with the controversial preacher during the presidential campaign.

Bush Turns The Other Cheek for Obama

President Bush met with the Obamas at the White House today and extended them a gracious welcome, despite a flood of attacks made by Obama toward Bush during the last several years. When Bush first arrived at the White House in 2000, some of the furniture had been taken by the Clinton's and staffers had vandalized some of the office equipment. It appears that Bush plans to turn the other cheek and forgive the past. See Chick's THE HIT.

Nebraska Races to Change Baby Law

A 30th child was surrendered to Nebraska's state government to raise with the words "Safe Haven". Law makers intended for the law to be used to save unwanted babies, but many teens have been turned in as well. This latest "orphan" was 18-years-old and bipolar. The state Congress plans to meet quickly to change the law, so if you have a spoiled kid that needs new parents, you may want to get a flight to our nation's breadbasket! See Chick's THE BRAT.

New controversial Chick book: "Hot Topics! "

Chick releases a new book full of his' most controversial (and often, most popular) tracts, including ALLAH HAD NO SON, DARK DUNGEONS, and the long out of print, LISA.

Obama Wins, GOP and Clintons Lose

Obama wins the presidential race. After eight years in exile, liberals celebrate the world over. (One called NPR to say he believed that now they could finally find a cure to cancer.) If Obama can really make the economy soar, end the war on terror, and prevent global warming, then he's destined to be a two term President. Heck, if he can do ANY of those things, we will be lucky. Unfortunately, the stock market did not show much confidence. It dropped 480 points the following day (the largest post election drop in history.) But the biggest loser seems to be Hillary Clinton. She won't get another shot for eight more years, and by then, the 18 to 22-year-olds who pushed Obama over the finish line won't even know who the Clintons were. Meanwhile, the anti-gay marriage measures seem to have passed everywhere they were on the ballot, including Florida AND California. Now we'll get to see how the liberal courts try to worm out of enforcing it. See Chick's SIN CITY.

McDonald's Stops Clowning Around With Gays

The American Family Association (AFA) has ended its boycott against McDonalds after the food chain joined the "Gay Chamber of Commerce" earlier in May. AFA had asked McDonalds to remain neutral in the culture war regarding homosexual marriage and the Corporation has agreed.

McDonald’s said McDonald’s Vice President Richard Ellis has resigned his position on the board of NGLCC and that his seat on the board will not be replaced. McDonald’s also said that the company has no plans to renew their membership in NGLCC when it expires in December.

In an e-mail to McDonald’s franchised owners the company said, “It is our policy to not be involved in political and social issues. McDonald’s remains neutral on same sex marriage or any ‘homosexual agenda’ as defined by the American Family Association.” Perhaps they just felt embarrassed that a company that makes "happy meals" for kids and uses clowns for their spokepersons, was also supporting organizations that define themselves by alternative sexual practices and are highly controversial.

McCain Urged to focus on Jews

A conservative political pundit says John McCain should use his last moments before the election to target the Jewish vote in key swing states.

David Horowitz is the author of Party of Defeat: How Democrats and Radicals Undermined America's War on Terror Before and After 9-11. The founder of the David Horowitz Freedom Center believes Republican John McCain needs to pull out all the stops to try to prevent Barack Obama from winning Tuesday's election. For one thing, Horowitz says McCain needs to knock some sense into the heads of Jewish voters.

"It would help it if he would jump on Jesse Jackson's statement that Obama made, that the Zionist policies of the United States would cease if Obama becomes president. In other words, we're going to sell out the only democracy in the Middle East to the terrorists," he contends. "If they would put that on television in Florida, New Jersey, Ohio, and similar places, the suburbs of Pennsylvania, maybe we could pull this out, maybe it would knock enough sense in the heads of Jewish voters at least that they would stop their support for Obama."

Trick-or-Treater Shot dead

A 12-year-old black boy was shot and killed as the knocked on the door in Sumpter, South Carolina, for Halloween candy. His father and 9-year-old brother were also hit, but not killed. The killer, a 22-year-old black man, said he had been shot and robbed in the past, and didn't want to get victimized again. It doesn't explain why he didn't look out the door before blindly firing dozens of rounds from his assault rifle. See Chick's Happy Halloween.
