    When it comes to religious sects, the best policy is abstinence.

    Going over there would amount to suicide Rat. Rat kebab, anyone?

    Someone should tell Rat that there’s no such thing as safe sects.

    Never heard it pronounced like that. Which makes it funny for me. This is what his puns used to be like before they started happening so frequently.

    “Sects” is one of those words like “thespian” that I always pronounce VERY carefully.

    Unfortunately, Rat would convince a lot of people to be suicide bombers …… not that he intends to convince them.

    If you change religions does that make you a transsectual?

    Does Goat have a speech impediment, or does Rat just have selective hearing?

    Last night I watched the The Story of God with Morgan Freeman on Natgeo. I found it very interesting and informative. It was very objective.I suggest that believers and non-believers at least watch it.

    Sects and violence go hand in hand…even in the funny pages.

    Goat uttering “There’s no such thing as casual sects.” deserves a T shirt. I’d even buy one for each member of my family. Without getting too graphic, We’d look beautiful, if you like that look.

    Oops, I don’t know what happened with the link. The point is, it reminds me of the strip from December 28.

    I’m surprised that the CSC isn’t concerned about the overt sectsuality in this strip.

    The refugees going to Greece has pretty much stopped. It is still being reported because reporters like to say, “I’m reporting from the Island of Lesbos.”

    Where’s the final frame where the characters complain to Pastis about the terrible pun?

    Please do volunteer, Rat! First, grow a scruffy beard, then shout some dire-sounding slogans in local tongues.Then, await Hellfire.
