RE: Just Read a Chick Tract
^I see no reason to doubt you.

Diddo if that's true I can almost guarantee that you're smarter than that and I'd like to point you towards Dido instead:

Let it all stop here I've had my fill.

Soulless mutants of muscle and intent. There are billions of us; hardy, smart and dangerous. Shaped by millions of years of death. We are the definitive alpha predator. We build monsters of fire and stone. We bottled the sun. We nailed our god to a stick.

In man's struggle against the world, bet on the man.

That's... Buzzword-y and that makes it difficult to believe you but I can't take issue with your intent. (Maybe.)

Your sentiment however:
Harsh my butt. ("Harsh" my butt: Nightly. Bangin Wink) The world isn't severe or disproportionate. The way things are is the way it can be. Nothing more nothing less. That is especially true given that I'm writing this in a first world country, in the comfiest chair in the building on a fantastic combination of supermarket, friend, lover and confidant.

Even if that weren't the case I'd say we're better off without the various parental figures described in religious texts. There isn't a single one of them that I'd like to see in charge.

Jack Chick is a wacko even by the standards of the "lying to your fundamental consumer base" crowd. Easiest way to tell is to look at the stuff he's no longer willing to distribute.

But that is only tangentally related to the topic: I generally think people deserve the benifit of the doubt, they're smart enough to tell what's true. They choose not to think about it because it generally doesn't effect their decision making process.

I think Jack Chick it genuinely too stupid to understand that he's not creating a compelling arguement.

That Lisa comic... That comic is horrifying. Blink

What the FUCK is up with Jack Chick?

I refer to my signature in such cases, if I'm to be honest.
