    Yes, Mr Alexander is perfectly correct. And you’re being taught about evolution and dinosaurs as well!

    This might be the inspiration for “My Parents Are Aliens.”

    No, wait, it can’t be…C&H is funny.

    Why do some people insist on turning a perfectly innocuous cartoon into an opportunity for their own personal religious (or in this case, anti-religious) commentary?

    Completely agree with Richard S. Russell. Utter genius.Made me wonder if I have succeeded in bringing up our children to be the aliens my wife and I are. Hmmm. Not completely. And how are my children doing with their children. Sigh. Aliens will be extinct because of this.

    Been reading this since I was a kid (about Calvin’s age actually lol) and it always amazes me sometimes when I come across one and see it through adult eyes and it strikes me with new meaning.

    There were a few occasions in the past my wife and I were sure our kids were aliens! Of course, we did have an exchange student from Spain years ago…

    He’s no different from most kids. I am in my late 60’s and as I grew older found myself thinking, “That’s just what Mom used to do or say” after I do or say something. We do sometimes grow up to be our parents.

    Well done, Calvin! But whatever you do… Don’t show your alien parents! But I’m sure you’re not that stupid. Cough!

    The next poem should be about Miss

    “What religious commentary? You are seeing things my friend.”If this isn’t “religious commentary,” what is it? AlexanderTheGoodEnough said, about 13 hours ago“Well, look at the bright side, kid. Your folks don’t seem to terrorizing you in some fundi church or another. It could be very much worse.”

    Ahem. You seem to be missing my point. No, this strip does not mention religion per se. Calvin seems to think his parents are terrible, but my point is that “it could be very much worse,” and perhaps he ought to be thankful. Indoctrinating a child with any religion that terrorizes, brainwashes, lobotomizes or molests them is bald child abuse. And if you think that does not happen, a lot, you are simply not paying attention and/or really don’t care. And if you read this strip as merely a slightly more verbose version of Family Circus, you utterly misunderstand it.

    Since the religious commentary could hardly be plainer, I wonder why you are asking the question?’ The strip had nothing to do with religion, yet Alexander took the opportunity to essentially say that nothing is more evil than religion. Fortunately, other than pointing out the fact that the comment was inappropriate, no one took the bait, and we didn’t have to endure an argument of whether teaching a child religion is more evil, or whether teaching a child atheism is more evil. This is a comic, and it’s supposed to be funny. Let’s leave the politics and religion at the door, and all smile together at Calvin’s perspectives. Calvin does have a point in the third frame – those human masks are sagging a bit.

    So obviously a fantasy in Calvin’s mind, but in many ways so very true. And I say this as a parent.
