This is an outstanding strip. And the intensity of the comments above reveal it accomplished that rare achievement—being truly provocative.
As a pastor (and retired USAF chaplain) I applaud the cartoonists for their wit, and I plan to share this with some other clergy I know. It (sadly) represents the experience of growing numbers of people.
As for some of the less gracious comments, allow me to suggest that the frequently insensitive impositions of “evangelistic” Christians are usually well-intensioned, in that most genuinely care do about others and want them to know the peace and joy many believers experience. Expressing glee at someone’s presumed damnation is something altogether different than genuine Christianity.
On the other hand, ridiculing people for their sincere beliefs is not an admirable trait either. I recognize that reaction often arises from similar treatment (real and perceived) that people have received due to their honest questions and convictions, but in our decreasingly civil society, it’s something that all people of goodwill (whatever their religious beliefs) should strive to resist.
Sorry for the “sermon.”
