Which is one reason why the Fourteenth and Nineteenth Amendments were passed in the first place - because the state governments had taken it on themselves to limit citizenship and suffrage. On the other hand, it must be a living document because times and technology change - in our own case, drastically, which is what Tom’s point is, I believe. Our own idea of freedom itself is different from that of the rich, white, educated elites who came up with the Constitution. America already had a diverse population in the eighteenth century, but only a minority of the adults could directly influence the law, or the enforcement of it.
I wouldn’t say this is antitheistic per se, but definitely a satire of religious ideas, pointing out how fundamentally self-contradictory and illogical an anthropomorphic idea of a supreme being actually is. Endowing an omnipotent and omniscient being with a human-sized personality just flat-out doesn’t work. So you get nonsense like God, who already knows everything, “testing” your faith - despite the fact that, being God, he’s already aware of what the results of the test are going to be. So, then, the point of the test is just to wear away at your faith to make it … stronger?

This is the funniest single entry of this strip I have read yet. I sat here and giggled over and over.
Pure comedy absurdity - and for those of us into superheroes, just gut-bustingly hilarious. Thanks!
