I was once a pretty ardent left-winger, but I have been more and more alienated by attacks on sincerely held religious beliefs, like the one in today’s strip.
I put my faith way ahead of my politics. The left used to be the side doing the work of Jesus, i.e., caring for the poor and the like, so it was a good fit. Not any more – I feel religious believers are increasingly the object of ridicule by the left.
It saddens me.
