    The only unbelievable thing in this strip is Rat feeling guilty.

    Wasn’t aware that Rat ever attended church. Casinos, yes, but never church…

    No, no, you misunderstand him… Rat feels guilty about leaving some of the money behind!

    This seems a common joke. Seen it several times in sitcoms. Wonder how often it really happens.

    I know he’s condescending and controversial, but I like the late Pastor Arnold Murray’s philosophy on tithing. He said, “God doesn’t send out beggars.” They do not “pass the plate” in his congregation. And in his TV ministry, the only mention of donations is at the end of the program, when either he or the announcer quickly rattles off something like, “We are brought to you by your tithes and offerings. If we’ve helped you, won’t you help us keep coming to you?”

    As a christian, I’m going to try to give this a positive spin: On one hand, Rat not going to church, and its discovered that he was stealing from church. On the other hand, he was stealing from church, made a point to remove himself from that temptation, and when pressed, honestly admitted to his crime.
    When you factor in what Rat is like normally… well, I’m putting this down as a win for the god team.

    Rat’s reasoning is impeccable. Pastor-guy (Pastor Bob?) can’t refute Rat’s eloquent interpretation….

    Casinos / Church … same / same. Placing bets on unsubstantiated beliefs.

    Kali39:
    Please don’t compare casinos and churches in the same sentence….all odds are substantiated in a casino.

    You really don’t pass up any opportunity to evangelize for YOUR team, do you?

    I’d rather my money go to a talking rat than a church.
