Sad that Rat can’t love himself.
OK Rat, who can you love?
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.
The Gospel according to Rat?
Spare the rod, spoil the pest!
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.
Too many people think like Rat.
Religion is NEVER right.
Rat: The Smitemiester!
Well Rat is a rat, Not a people. So he gets a pass on this one. ……..Croc Power !
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?”
Rat would fit right in to the Spanish Inquisition! Get the COMFY CHAIR!
Yea, tho I walk through the Valley of friendly people, I will carry a big stick for the annoying.
Which will make you annoying to them, hence religious wars.
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
That sounds pretty old testamenty.
You tell the crocs to love thy neighbour and they’ll love eating Zeeba.
That’s how it seems to be, interpret it the way you want.
Its better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.
Rat should check out Zen. It includes hitting people with sticks. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keisaku
This means that Rat will be hit continuously.
OK, but I will continue to bring Hand-Wash packets to church for after that hand-shaking thing.
Hit me with your rhythm stick.Ian Dury,and the Blockheads ;)
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.
“Love thy enemy”… it’s a toughie.
Religion is the cause of many wars.
According to what I remember, even Jesus got to hit the worst offenders. Money changers at the temple, I believe?
The real message is one that most can stand to learn (myself included).
Lucretius: Religion is an evil superstition.
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….
Therein lies the challenge.
There is only one God … but 7 billion idiots that can’t accept that they are wrong about him.
