    And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that (the Lord) said, Escape for thy life; look not at Congress and the White House …

    The only thing I know Rat will find annoying with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is its membership not drinking booze and smoking.

    I’m sure it’s in scripture somewhere.

    So is it OK to kill people so long as you don’t murder them? Apparently this has not been worked out to everyone’s satisfaction yet, so we can cut the rat some slack.

    Obviously Rat didn’t read Matthew 5.46-47:

    “For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you salute only your brethren, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same?”

    You know you have found the right religion when your god hates the same people you do.

    Did RAT mean to say hit them with his stick or STAFF?? There’s other religions that don’t condone booze and smoking, but think nothing of abusing women…sex booze and rock n roll. Booooya

    Rat should check out Zen. It includes hitting people with sticks. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keisaku

    I seem to remember some smiting of Philistines, so Rat can’t be completely wrong.

    Religious strip, knew there’d be a ton o’ comments. Let me paraphrase Rat in the first panel; Atheists have it right. The key to life is to love other people, regardless." May or may not be true, but I like to think it is.

    According to what I remember, even Jesus got to hit the worst offenders. Money changers at the temple, I believe?

    Rat’s very own version of religion is suited (naturally) to his personal inclinations. In that respect, he is like many other mere mortals who have created their own versions of religion….
